Alexandra Jacopetti Hart is credited for the rise of “funk and flash”—not the Sebastopol clothing store, but the art of turning hippie garb into high fashion with her book Native Funk & Flash. Now 73, Hart first learned to sew by taking apart her aunts hand-me-downs to make them fit right; once she realized she didn’t have to stick to the patterns she was taught, there was no turning back. An exhibit of her work, as well as a celebration of the re-release of Native Funk & Flash, takes place Friday, June 7, at the Occidental Center for the Arts. 3850 Doris Murphy Court, Occidental. 6pm. Free. 707.874.9392.
