The Story Behind My Shoes

WELL SISTERS 🎶 “THESE BOOTS ARE MADE FOR WALKING” 🎶 AND FOR BE SKETCHED TOO.

Clothes & Margarita

I like my shoes… They are ankle-high boots with floral embroidery: white, red, pink and blue flowers against the tanned suede. They look like a summer meadow this year nourished by urgent storms and vibrant sun rays. Their simple beauty has a calming effect against the chaos of the world ridden by the COVID-19 pandemic and ambitions of corporate gains.  I just put them on and rule the sidewalk, attracting admiration and interest. But as a clothes writer I am always on the lookout for a good story. So what about my shoes?

They are by Venezia, which, contrary to the name, is a Polish brand. It is unclear who the owners are except that they are market leaders with over 100 stores all over Poland. There is no story available, how the brand was set up, what kind of values there are behind it, but, apparently, there is…

The Glitch Project

👘🧥🥻 HI LOVELIES! TODAY WE’VE GOT WONDERFUL TEXTILE EXPERIMENTS AND GENUINE GARMENTS.

Anusha Govindaraj

Print

In this project, I have translated the visual appearance of a glitch through the use of textiles and trims. The intent is to stress the extent to which digital media is making all of us into dependent beings. Dependant on likes and followers to prove our self-worth. The glitch represents the blurred line that separates the real self and the virtual projection on online platforms; the glitch shows the media’s impact on individual identity that is slowly disintegrating. The translation of this image onto garments is a tangible indication that expresses the digital obsession being a part of us, merging together with the body. As the media is a temporary indulgence, so is the textile that covers the nakedness.

Here are a series of textile experiments supporting my idea which eventually is reformed into garments.

Butterflies of Hope

👠🦋 ❤️WELL LOVELIES, THIS IS NOT A SHOE, THIS IS A SHELTER FULL OF HOPE.

butterflies-of-hopeWhen a veil of darkness covered my soul,

an invisible hand opened the door.

Beautiful butterflies flew in and lifted the veil,

so the light could shine and take the darkness away.

Dedicated with love to: Charlotte, Susan, Cindy, Sabrina, Kelly, Risa, Ruth and Kerry. Thank you all.

When you get tired of

🔘 HI DEARS, “THE WHEEL TURNS SOONER OR LATER”.

A Sleepy Spirit Art

This is just one of those blog posts where I complain..

I am tired of stupidity, bad ongoing excuses, ignorance, laziness and the worst, bad will…

You know, if you don’t care anyway, just step aside and let others who care and are committed do it!

Perhaps your ignorance is sustained by who keeps you in their lap and closes its eyes to the disaster you are causing.

But don’t worry, the wheel turns sooner or later!

It always does!

Nowhere to Wear Them

👗👚🧥 SO TRUE DEARS, SHE WILL BE ABLE TO SHOW HER WARDROBE.

Deliberate Sketching

Our Zoom model yesterday posed in her closet, as she has done for us before. I love this scene and all that is in this room so much. Each time I try so hard to capture the feeling the model has for clothing and accessories. I can tell that she sees as an artist sees and knows what is special about the colors, textiles, and flow of her garments.

During a break, she said that one of the hardest parts of the lockdown is having beautiful clothing with no place open and nowhere to wear her art. An artist needs to display her work. Hopefully, she will be able to show her wardrobe soon.

Orange and Blue in the Mid-Twenties

👒🎩⏳ HELLO SUGARS! LET’S HAVE A MOMENT TO REVIEW THOSE OLD DRAWINGS

witness2fashion

When I wrote about the orange and black color combination that was popular in the nineteen twenties, I found out that there are still some devoted lovers of orange out there. It turns out that orange and blue were often pictured together in Delineator fashion illustrations in 1924 and 1925.

Of course, orange and blue are complementary colors, opposite each other on the color wheel, and therefore they enhance each other when juxtaposed, — orange seeming brighter and blue seeming more vivid — so illustrators may have put them side by side for this reason.
