I first done this post back in 2012, but I decided to revamp it, I think this collection is one of my favorites. Taking into consideration that I’m currently in love with textiles and printed fabrics is something I am really into it.
The title of my blog is exactly what Dolce and Gabbana have done with there Summer Collection 2012, Brought the vegetables we eat into the fashion world. Quite different and unique don’t you think?.
The main ‘ingredients’ if you want to call it that are, tomatoes, peppers and aubergines. I believe what inspired Dolce and Gabbana is the Mediterranean cruises and possibly the Italian culture they embrace on a daily basis.
Colours: Orange, red, black, dark purple, green, cream, peach, gold, pink, pale blue and yellow.
Materials/Fabrics: Tulle (fine netting, often made from silk or nylon), Brocade (decorative woven fabric silk) Lace Chiffon, Organza (plain weave made from silk) and Cotton Mix, Crochet, PVC.
Thanks for passing by.
*twiddles fingers* Where to start?
A few weeks back, I attended the Hermes Paris exhibition. Having been my second Hermes Paris Exhibition I found this one to be absolutely amazing, I say it over and over again but I left feeling so inspired. Leaving feeling inspired means that the exhibition had an impact on my life!!!!
What I liked the most was the screen printing of silk, literally a session where you get to watch one of the Hermes craftsmen print a silk Hermes scarf right before your eyes, It was beautiful. Having studied textiles I understood the whole process and the result of it did make me miss university just a little bit, being in the studio printing getting messy and all the other parts of being a creative student. Below are some images of my time at the exhibition and the steps of the silk being printed.
