Teena Hughes - Silk Artist / Textile DesignerUnique Wearable Art Collection & Interior Design Collections by Designer Teena Hughes

I’m Teena Hughes — an artist, designer, author and educator.

I have been creating one-of-a-kind clothing and accessories for over three decades.

I have won awards for my designs, taught creative silk painting in Australia, France and the USA, hosted Fashionista events in several countries, started the world-first Plus Size Shopping Adventure in Paris, France (in 2011, and it is still the only Plus Size Shopping Tour in 2015), and written books about silk painting and shopping for plus size fashion in Paris.


Abfab Designs is my label, and I specialise in creating one-of-a-kind, hand-painted and hand-dyed unique wearable art in fine silk crepe de Chine, silk chiffon, silk velvet, rayon and cotton.

Unique Wearable Art -- Handpainted silk chiffon Haori jacket in hot pink & lime green by Teena Hughes

I create my own textile designs on white silk then use the fabric to create my unique interpretation of the Japanese Haori jacket, kimonos, tunics, beautiful scarves and other one-off designs in my Wearable Art Collection.

You might also enjoy my fabulous range of lamps, screen dividers and other objets d’art for decorating any space, whether the home, office, showroom or design studio in the Interior Design Collection.
