MISASSEMBLED is wearable art built specifically for those who find expression in the infinite variety of geometric forms in the three dimensional world. Referencing architecture, geometry, and crystal formations, each piece is a complex sculpture expressing a graceful elegance through sharp angles and precise lines.

Created by American artist, Swain McCaughrin, MISASSEMBLED as an art concept began in New York City in the mid 2000s, when Swain discovered the creative freedom in underground nightlife. Fueled by a fluorescent world of blacklight and music, she began folding paper and vinyl to make large scale, origami-like installations for warehouse parties. With her traditional sculpture background and self-taught sewing skills, her installations evolved into sculptural geometric designs to wear, merging art with fashion and movement with sculpture. She continued to expand the idea of wearing sculptures by creating paper headpieces, wood jewelry, and mixed-media body sculptures.

MISASSEMBLED as a brand was born in 2018, as a way to make Swain's sculptures more accessible and wearable. By combining innovative technology with traditional craft, she has brought new life into her art as ready-to-wear sculptures made of materials including steel, silver, brass, and nylon. 

Committed to environmental and social responsibility, MISASSEMBLED operates on a small scale and carefully sources materials locally for production. Each item is either made-to-order or part of a small batch, eliminating waste and excess, while ensuring the best quality and craftsmanship possible. Items are made in the USA and exclusively packaged in custom gift boxes made from recycled materials and sent to you directly from the artist's studio.
