Designer Emma Berg's uterus apron is awesome protest art


Simply gorgeous.

In difficult times, creatives types often need to create. That impulse drove local fashion designer Emma Berg to stitch a beautiful uterus apron.

Folks who follow Berg on Instagram and Facebook have been watching her work on this sparkly design in segments over the past few weeks. It began partly as a meditative process and partly in the spirit of resistance to the current administration.

Minnesota native Berg moved to New York a few years ago when she was let go as part of the massive Target layoffs. She still pops up around town, though, including showing her fashions at last year's Avant Garden at the Walker Art Center. Her local legacy also lives on at, a Twin Cities arts resource and online calendar that she co-founded.

We're not the only ones appreciating her fine apron work; her awesome uterus piece caught the eye of NYMag this week as well.

Check out her process below.
