Fashion Politics

France is moving to ban Veiled faces in certain public places (like transport and hospitals), as a pro- assimilation anti-Islamic extremists move. So many issues with that sort of decree, but it reminds me of a Quebec movie that deals with reasons to wear the veil and the decisions of a young Muslim Quebecois girl coming of age.

I have not seen it, but I love the idea of show casing this issue through the choices of a 13 year old girl.

I've always intended to use this as a forum for showing my process in creating garments. This hasn't really worked out, I usually get all caught up in doing and forget about documenting. Recently I've started to hand make a pleated chiffon dress. This is one of those things that takes forever, so lots of time to take pictures.

This is the process of pleating with basting stitches the chiffon onto a piece of nude mesh. Once the chiffon is all pleated and basted, I go over with small stitches along the fold lines I can see through the mesh. Once it's all done I trimmed the piece and finished the edge with large running stitches.

mmmm logos

So I sat down and worked out a logo for my Theatre Production company.

It is a logo of doom.

Knitty Knitty Doom.

Cause if you have a theatre production company really your logo should be all about knitting doom monsters.

New Leggings!

Black Lace Leggings now available for a limited time only.

Doing it Right

this is amazing.

The one picture where we see the red triangle on her white chest. BRILLIANT. Just absolutely brilliant. This photographer delivers set after set of amazing Post-Industrial images. I would like to see more portraits, I think there's some serious potential for minds being blown in his Portraiture.

Those Days

When you can almost pass as a Serious Person.

This is one of those days.

I just moved the Computer thingy into my existing (but just recently reorganized) studio space.

I should be taking bets on how this will affect my productivity. Any takers?

Snapshot timline

This time of year I always end up in one or 8 million of those cute little dorky snapshots at parties. SMILE look convivial! Aren't you cute!

It's one of those milestone markers in life. How did you look at holiday party 20__? Well now you too can know.

I have the past four consecutive years + a bonus one from some time in the early naughties.

And yes this is also a slight retrospective of one of my very good friends, Patrick. He changes his hair about as often as I do. I miss his insane blond locks. And yes in the early naughties I had some insane hair, and my best friend looked like a worried time traveler. This is all true.

Detention Hall, New Fabric

The light grey jersey is sold out, so I picked up some dark charcoal stuff. Super pretty.

I'm also thinking about making it available in a long sleeve version. But we'll see.
