I was excited to see someone had taken a quick snap of my shoes from my collection backstage! and included it on the blog. YAY
the shoes are embellished with custom made ceramic mosaic ‘buttons’ that I had stitched onto the shoe, all the buttons are unique and the imagery comes from
my interpretation of the Frida Kahlo story. Thanks to Wendy for helping me with these 🙂
on a rainy monday like this, there is nothing better than getting a warmed up with a skim latte and sitting in front of the computer screen looking at inspirational work. go to http://www.fashiondesignuts.com/ to view some of the other students work from our graduating year of UTS Design (Fashion and Textiles).
ps. leaving you with another beautiful shot of Amber from my collection shoot,
This print is an original, complete with my own sketches, painting and photography. This print will be a part of a series of textiles for my collection which will serve to represent different aspects of frida kahlo’s life. This print in particular represents her sexuality and the challenges she had embracing her self as a woman. Love was a tricky topic for her, she experienced so much pain in her life- physically, emotionally, etc. Here I explore the impact on this on her sexual life and the varied and intense interactions she experienced, perhaps due to the for-mentioned history she had.
At the moment I am obsessed with trying to convey the idea of orthopedic devices in my work. Frida was burdened with wearing a back brace/ torso brace and leg braces throughout her life as she battled illness which led to operations and the eventual amputation of some of her leg. However, until she died, these burdens did not hold her back… As she said famously ‘who needs feet when you can fly?’
After having the flu since Sunday and struggling to get any work done at such a crucial time, my muse is the perfect motivation to help me push on.
These images have been chosen in reference to colour palette experimentation. Frida was known to accessorize with large stones and gems, in particular I have noted green and red to be strong favorites in her jewelry choices. Thus inspiring me to consider embellishment with these stones, coming from my chosen colours and perhaps for jewelry pieces to adorn my models.
