Heidi Valencia is a wardrobe and prop stylist based in Seattle. Her background includes work in commercial, video, eCommerce, runway, and editorial shoots. Her personal style is based heavily on recycling what she calls “previously loved” clothing — a mix of secondhand, found, and vintage pieces.
By way of drought ridden California to the sustainable Pacific Northwest, the realization that our planet is not limitless has been made strikingly apparent. For this show, she has put the love into composing and repurposing secondhand items that may be considered unusual, outdated, or perhaps unlovable.
Her aim as a stylist for Project 8.1 is to utilize the absurdity, humor, and novelty that is usually left by our modern society to fray in the gutter in order to get the conversation started. What happens to your closet?
