Debra Rapoport

Gifted and Thrifted

Debra is a textile designer, visual artist and, as she refers to herself, a “manipulator of materials,” who is so accomplished that her work has been exhibited at The Metropolitan Museum of Art. Debra is passionate about the infinite possibilities of creating with her hands. She works with color, texture and layering using unusual materials to create hats, headgear, bracelets, cuffs and many other outrageous personal embellishments. She has been featured in many articles and magazines, such as Time Out New York’s ‘Most Stylish New Yorkers,’ and has presented workshops at the Museum of Arts and Design in NYC. Debra believes that you are never too old to dress up and be your most creative self.
