More Than A Pretty Face: Therese Tant

Special Offer

Q: Do those worlds ever overlap?
A: All the time. If you look at the details on the Volt, you'll see the influence of fashion. The interior trim panels are created from reconstituted leather. There's an exposed edge, like it's been sliced off, which shows the stitching. In the corners, we used architectural stitching as anchors. That look comes from handbags and shoes, where the corners of a handbag are stitched almost like a triangle to anchor the piece. That style definitely came from my closet.

Q: Where else do you get ideas?
A: I'm in a Poi performance group. Poi is a traditional New Zealand dance where you swing fire. I like exposing myself to as many different things as I can because it recharges my creativity. I don't want to miss anything that could be the next great idea.
