Sweden Swagger....

So I have moved this little adventure to Stockholm Sweden. I have discovered this great fashion illustrator Cecilia Carlstedt. Her work is so stunning. She mixes medium, incorporating ink, pencil and water color. Water color happens to be my favorite medium to use so I immedietly feel in love with her work. Check out her website ( it is under construction right now) when it is up and running! I have picked some of my favorite pieces for you to see! Enjoy!

Happy Earth Day!

Happy Earth Day everyone!

So I came across this great exhibit going on right now at Atlanta's Hartsfield Jackson International Airport. It is an installation of "eco-trash" fashion designs by artist Nancy Judd. All of the designs are made from items that were intended to be thrown away, but instead have been turned into something beautiful and unique. Some of the top looks of the exhibit are a stewartess outfit made from old Delta Airline leather seat covers, a bathsuit made from plastic detergent bottles, and a fiesta outfit made from old target bags. Most of the designs were sponsered by companies such as Target, Toyota, and Delta. To check out more of Judd's art check out her website!

La La London !

So I was scoping out the Spring/Summer 2011 London Fashion Week shows and wanted to share my favorite show of the week. Roksanda Illincic collection was by far of one the best collections at London fashion week. Look after look was more pretty then the next, the flow and movement of the collection created a versatile collection of casual and cocktail wear. The coral pinks and sandy tans made it the perfect assortment for the Spring!

I fell in love with the dramatic head scarves and flowing silhouettes---

Love the Grey Head Scarf!

A nice combination of coral, grey and , tan.

Check Out the Video of the Show!

Playing in the Dirt!

So I am taking my voyage to Italy to a little place called Umbria, a small region east of Tuscany. I have discovered an interesting collaboration between farmer and designer. Italian designer Francesco Mugnaini has come up with an idea to "plant t-shirts", yes , t-shirts. Sounds simple but the idea is much more complex and interesting then just you average t-shirt. The idea is to create t-shirts and plant them in the ground and the design part is up to nature. When Francesco met Scottish farmer  Sebastian Runde, he knew he could execute his idea. Runde is an organic farmer , who's farm is located in our destination, Umbria! After much trial and error they finally found the right material to use, an organic silk. The t-shirts are then produced locally and all material used are environmentally friendly. Once the shirts are planted they let nature runs its course, the way the earth reacts to the silk allows for different designs and colors to form on the material. Each shirt has its own unique markings , which makes looking at each one more fascinating and interesting. But don's judge a book by its cover, at first it may seem as though it is just  a t-shirt with some dirt on it, but it is much more then that. If you look closely you can see different designs and colors throughout, an underlying example of how beautiful the earth can be. This idea is any fashionistas ideal way to play in the dirt!
