The Gallery Montecito hosted a pop-up show on Saturday, May 19, with artist Taki Gold, who showed off his “Girl God” Jacket Line. “It’s unique, wearable art that is one-of-a-kind,” said gallery curator Bobbi Bennett

The jackets are displayed on simple mannequins, which are included in the jacket purchase so they can be displayed as an art piece in a room. Gold says each Jacket has a personal story of how it was created; each story is displayed near the jacket in the Gallery. “The intention behind Girl God is to honor the women in my life, who made my war beautiful during the Liberian Civil War,” Gold said.

Allora by Laura styled the jackets on display with designer skirts; the opening drew many Montecito locals to try on the jackets, and only four remain. They’ll be on display through Friday, May 25. 

The gallery is located at 1277 Coast Village Road.
