Q: What's this bug?

A: Insect biology student Isabelle Gilchrist pairs her love for bugs and yarn to design and knit “ento-fashion,” including a scarf, mittens and this jacket featuring insects from the order Hymenoptera. “It’s a true tragedy that there aren’t more bug clothes in the world,” Gilchrist says. “So I decided to make my own.”
