The fashion designs that make up the series titled Wearables by Elena Stonaker, a fine artist living and working in Los Angeles, California, could easily be described as hobo chic. Each outfit looks as though it were made up of various tapestries and quilts, which gives it that haphazard appeal.

Full of vibrant colors, a variety of textures and mishmash of prints and patterns, Wearables by Elena Stonaker are not meant to be flattering. Large and ungainly, the wrap around the body like the shell of a crab, protecting the body instead of simply cladding it. In a way, the collection is a combination of all of her interests as a doll maker and a painter.
