De*Nada


I was recently contacted by designer Virginia Blanca Arrisueño about her line, De*Nada.
Virginia got her BFA at the University of Maryland (Go Terps!), and she’s received many awards for her talent and skill, both creative and technical, including the Sadat Art for Peace Award — delivered to her by Nelson Mandela!

Another photo from my travels…

You see this (colorless) stained glass window on the way to the Sistine Chapel. The tour guide takes you up a bunch of stairs and through many walkways, and you abruptly end up right in the middle of the Sistine Chapel. On the way, though, there are many beautiful pieces of art, including this window.

It’s the bitch of living…

I’m obsessed with this film and will definitely be buying it ASAP.

Art as Inspiration, part 4: Klimt Revisited

I used to really hate Klimt, but after spending a few days in a room with a giant reproduction of Klimt’s “The Kiss“, his style really grew on me. I kind of wish he was still alive and designing clothing. Since he isn’t, we have to rely on interpretations by designers like Galliano. Here are a few examples of the master’s work – Klimt, not Galliano. That comes later.

Be forewarned – there will be boobies.
