Fashion is lovely

Simultaneous Evolutionary Jumps

A long time ago, I wanted to be an artist. Perhaps not so long ago. I love the process of doodling, and creating something special. There was a time where I pursued the idea of drawing, but for some reason, I thought there was no future in drawing, not to mention, I could never really draw that well.

Perhaps I just love the idea of art.

Drawing lines between art and fashion are particularly fun. Not so much because I think one in particular influences the other, but as signals of a visual evolution. My love for you is a stampede of horses showcased artist Amanda Hughen, who talks about her geoprismic drawings:

“in my work, i layer geometric shapes until the forms reach a critical mass, creating a release of energy, or an uncontrolled viral growth, like a scientific experiment gone awry. single geometric shapes are repeated until they mutate into exploding swarms. the resulting form is ambiguous: is it an aberrant island viewed from above, a blossoming virus, a microscopic map of the brain, or a flower from some science-fiction realm?”

Which makes me wonder about some snippets of fashion emerging, geometric, organic, asymmetrical. Origami. Hexagons. As if the human race is aching to understand the sacred geometry of nature.

  2. That United Bamboo skirt is amazing, and I wish I could have it!

    Did you go to the modern Japanese fashion exhibit at the SF Asian Art Museum this past winter? I didn’t manage to (I always miss their exhibits, and I always want to go to them!), but just the images they had advertising the exhibit were stunning.

  6. That bottom last right picture in all gray reminds me of that article, you might have already seen it, in NYmagazine with the one-color designers. It is truly an amazing article.
