NEW FABRICS

As promised here are the new fabrics, that I purchased in Montreal. I draped them on a mannequin to make you imagine what could become of them.



This beautiful silk-piece would be perfect for a woman who is not afraid to stand out.



This neutral, but effectful silk-organdy could even be used for a short wedding- or cocktaildress.




Last, but not least this "burned-out"-piece could be a nice choice for a premiere or an evening out.

If you would like to be dressed in one of them, please don´t hesitate. There is only enough for one-dress-of-a-kind and you will not see anybody else look like you.

ANTICLIMAX. . .

-Was the feeling I had, after a nice vacation in Canada. There is so much going on over there compared to here. Maybe it is all the impressions, the heat and the energy I am missing already.

Apart from the very inspiring exhibitions, described in previous posts, we spend time with family and friends before and after four days escape to the Laurentians north of Montreal.





Still I managed to purchase a few pieces of new fabric, that I will show you soon. For now I have to get back into the Rythm.

ONE | Outfits from a New Era


I was recommended to take a look at this exhibition at the Biosphere, while I am staying here in Montreal. It was very inspiring, interesting and too impor- tant to ignore. So I wanted to share this experience with you all.

The "ONE | Outfits from a New Era" - exhibition showcases 16 artistic creations made from mass consumption products. This challenge was taken up by ar- tists from the fields of cabinet making, jewelry, hairstyling, fashion design and the visual arts.
These unique creations present car parts, batteries, salmon skins, electronic waste and other cast-offs from our society, in a whole new light. They give tangible form to statistics concerning the impacts of consumer goods that are used then thrown away."

The creations was accompanied by art videos and soundtracks from the Ca- nadian music scene and bits of autographed garbage from Canadian public figures, such as Robert Lepage, George Stroumboulo-poulos, Julie Payette and Guy A. Lepage, used in each creation.
