Wearable Art










For the love of artistry and fashion.

Good morning, friends! I hope you are having a wonderful week thus far, though I'm sure you're looking forward to this weekend. For me, this week has been a whirlwind, and last night a friend and I attended a fashion show for one of our top University's fashion graduating program. We sat front row, very "Sex and The City" style, and enjoyed ourselves immensely as bold, interesting, unique, pretty, and beautiful fashion design filed down the runway. The impending calamity, though, was the most stunning bridal collection, ending with a very luxe gown that featured a detailed, fitted corset bodice, and the most exquisite and intricate train that I have ever seen. Applause, cheer and tears filled the large room, and for the first time I truly felt the beauty and immersion that fashion can bring to a person. We enjoy many gorgeous images on a daily basis, but to actually see such incredible works of art, and to be able to appreciate the sweat, toil, tears and joys of creating such was truly amazing. Do you know what I mean? Have you experienced something like this?

On a side note, isn't this shoot gorgeous? I believe it takes place in Musée D'Orsay, in Paris, as while I was visiting a little while ago, it was one of my favorite spots...I bought my first original painting just outside! These dresses are unbelievable, aren't they? Do you have a favorite?

  10. My favorite is the third. But I would take any of them!
    I have never been to a real fashion show. But being an artist myself, I can totally appreciate the elation that comes from seeing great design up close and personal.

  18. Destination Inspiration -- it IS, isn't it? Can you imagine wearing such a thing?

  19. I totally agree - fashion isn't glamorous behind-the-scenes, but the final, polished, product can be sheer beauty. It really IS wearable art. These dresses are UNBELIEVABLE... I think my favourite is the third one in - the gold, the feathered fabric... and HOW is it even staying attached to her shoulders???? It's amazing. This post reminds me of the one you did on Armani dresses. Ah, only in dreams!!

  28. Dear Sarah, these creations are breathtakingly beautiful...

    I can just imagine how wonderful is to enjoy a real fashion show...Unfortunately I had no chance for that /yet/ but thanks for sharing your precious experience...thanks to the way you writing about it I was there for a moment...

    Ps: I love Louise Fili's design too! Actually the way I found those books was Jessica Hische /who illustrated a couple of them/ and was working for Louise Fili LTD. Check out her web page -I love her calligraphy's- I'm sure you will enjoy it a lot /http://jessicahische.com/typographizes/an-illustrative-initial-every-day/.

    Hope you're having a lovely weekend my dear friend!
