Here is my thought for the day -” It doesn’t take much to be considered a difficult woman – that is why there are so many of us (Jane Goodall)”.
Yesterday I took my clothes in for the rehearsal (The Wearable Art Fashion Parade is happening next Saturday) and as much as I love the youngsters in the group, the older brigade were hard to understand. They seemed always to start from the difficult end of things, and looked constantly frazzled and frayed. It wasn’t easy – and my clothes were complex in so far as I had considered outfits, and had not done single pieces. There were a lot of clothes in a small space, and it could have been easier if we had been given directions about labelling, dividing the garments up into “items” as they were to be worn. But they were being handled as they had always been handled. I’m a difficult woman I think, and am always looking for a way things can flow better. I think the music is going to be fabulous (thanks Kirsty and Zoe), and should be made into a CD so that we can enjoy all of the tracks later.
There were some beautiful outfits. I especially loved the SILK FELTED outfits. They were very expensive, but the only couture/art pieces. Not only had I not experienced silk felt before, I had never seen REVERSIBLE felted clothing. It must be so difficult to achieve. I googled but couldn’t find this technique – not felted ON silk (plenty of these), but felted WITH silk, with merino wool base felted, not a fabric. Magnificent. Maybe I can get this lovely artist to come here and exhibit the clothing in the studio? I will try. I love working with clothing – the only difficulty is thinking of it as WORK!
I have some outfits I want to work on – a long vest, balloon pants (I do have one pair in the show next Saturday like the two on the left).
