A BRAND NEW WORKSHOP

Remember my wish last year ?  My wish is finally coming true. . .

A new chapter is about to start. I have been given the opportunity to start a brand new workshop with my dear friend, Rikke.
The workshop is situated not far from where I live. In the big basement of a shop at the end of Kongensgade, here in Odense, with actual access for the public.
Maybe not an obvious choice, but the basement is big and has a nice view from the street. I´m definately looking forward to be more visible and available again.  -And to cooperate with the shop on top.

We will offer a brand new collection of One-of-a-kind items, our own designs and eventually paintings and photoart.

If you are looking for something special and unique, you might find it. We are looking forward to see you there ;o) Different events is coming up, so stay tuned.

MONEY Vs AESTHETICS


Do you bother how your blog looks or are you just in it for the money ? When I look at different blogs I often wonder. . . But usually it is always easy to see what motivates bloggers. . .
When there is a lot of commercial banners, payed reviews and ads, it is obvi- ous why they blog. It often ruins the aesthetic or layout of the blog, I think.

I´m not against making money out of blogging, but I don´t think it should be the primary reason. You should only blog if you have something relevant to say or show.

Personally I enjoy aesthetic blogs more. They are often more inspiring, con- scious, dedicated and have a vision they want to share as well as the inter- acting with other bloggers.

I would like to know what motivates you and how you find the right balance ?

CURRENT & UPCOMING EXHIBITIONS

-Abroad, nationally and locally. If you want to be updated, visit dragt.dk´s website.
The Costume Unit of Danish Museums aka "De Danske museers Dragtpulje" is a network of museums containing Costumes in Denmark.
It is very interesting if you are into history of costume and would like to know what is going on. Unfortunately it is only in danish.

Among the international exhibitions is the new V&A exhibit, "Club to catwalk", that shows how much influence the club scene had on fashion in the 80´ies. I remember it vividly, because I bought most of the magazine´s like The Face, Blitz and i-D back then. I might have a few left. . . or at least some front pages, that I will show later on.


This exhibition is most certainly an indicator for, that we will see more 80`ies influence on the coming collections from the designers of today.

BUSINESSCARDS NOW AND THEN. . .

Hello out there!
I hope that you´re all well and had a really nice holiday.

Todays story is about inspiration from the past. Some years back I was shown a business card of my fathers late cousin. She was a beauty-therapist back then and had a good sense of design as you can see here. . .





So much that I in fact got inspired to do this. . .


9,5 x 15 cm



But as some of you may know, I changed to this a few years ago. . .


5 x 8,7 cm

But I must admit I am tempted to go back to the black and white one again. What do YOU think? All suggestions are welcome.

At the same time I would really appreciate some feedback on my blog layout.
Do you like it? As always you can comment in danish, french, german or english.
