Scott Ian McFarland creates unique wearable sculptures for the fashionably modern man or woman who doesn’t want to sacrifice comfort or craftsmanship to make a statement.

As a formally trained sculptor, designer Scott Ian McFarland translated his skills to knitwear design when he took a graduate elective in contemporary knitwear at the Academy of Art San Francisco. Amazed by the technique of taking long strips of various materials and turning them into wearable objects, in addition to discovering the control and creativity that knitwear allowed him– right down to a single stitch– Scott began to create his first collection. His experience with three-dimensional shapes, colors, and textures lead him to experiment with a variety of fibers and knitting techniques.

His beautiful pieces have been shown at New York Fashion Week and most recently at San Francisco Fashion Week 2012.
