You know the feeling? Luxurious textures near your face in glowing brocade flora. For many women like myself this throwback to vintage everything, longing for a more gentle pace of life, the lust for beauty in everything and the art of pursuing it? Well for me these emotions are all whirling inside my head twenty four hours a day all week long including my days out of my design studios. I search for people like myself constantly and sometimes I do find one or a half here and there. In the meantime I talk to my revolving collections of French Brocades and cut them one by one sending them out into the world wrapped in tulle for just the right moment when a woman’s world feels like everything is finally coming together..
Just got back from a pretty Danish wedding by the sea. After the church ceremony the bride and groom took off on a bicycle built for two bouquet and all!
Fashionable Danish women on bicycles in stilettos, flats or block heals were so beautiful. At a traffic light with the sun coming in through the buildings all I could see were chiffon ruffles fluttering and dress hens waving as an army of women and colorful bicycles waited for the light to turn green.
Sometimes I have to pinch myself!
i arrive most mornings at Allied Arts Guild and cannot believe how peaceful and beautiful the garden and flowers look. Sure our studio spaces are tiny but once I open my French doors the whole rose alley inches right up to the brocade Jackets and designs.
