Kyoto to Catwalk

The Victoria & Albert Museum's latest exhibition Kimono: Kyoto to Catwalk focuses on the Kimono as a dynamic evolving icon of fashion.  The Kimono was created in the 17th Century Japan when the growing Japanese merchant class had a desire for luxury.  The Kimono has been a strong influence in fashion since then.  

The exhibition starts on February 29th, 2020 and focuses "to show it as something dynamic".  Which has a strong effect on both fashion and film.  The beauty of the Kimono is the body becomes irrelevant.  It highlights a woman's shoulder which is a radical idea in womenswear, as it is not a restrictive garment.  

This is definitely an exhibition I would love to visit, as we love making Kimono shaped garments.

The Color Factory August 09 2017, 0 Comments

I recently had the chance to relive my childhood at the Color Factory.  Color Factory is a pop-up experience in San Fransisco conceptualized by Jordan Ferney the event planner behind the amazing Oh Happy Day blog and shop.  The interactive experience features work by several artists and collaborators.  It was definitely worth the visit to experience the amazing colors and textures.  The little kid in me loved the macaroon wheel and the yellow ball pit the most!
