The Call of the Wild

Specializing in silk, Lori Bacigalupi’s fashion line Kiss of the Wolf has won national renown – and is headquartered right here in Norman.


Designer Lori Bacigalupi and her clothing line, Kiss of the Wolf, have been influential in the artisan clothing market for more than 30 years. She is a regular at the most prestigious craft shows in the country, and her garments are worn by actors and authors, administrators and architects and other stylish, successful women from San Francisco to Manhattan and beyond – and it all begins in a studio nestled in the trees behind her historic home in Norman.



Kiss of the Wolf is best known for silk. Bacigalupi and her creative team begin with white silk and color it with techniques and patterns from around the world – Indonesian batik, Japanese shibori, Peruvian huari, silkscreen, block printing and more – before hand-tailoring it into stunning art couture.
