State of the Art.

Catalysta.org has published a series of talk "State of the Art": Three eco fashion experts explain how one of the most wasteful industries in the world can take the steps necessary for change and a sustainable future.
There are 3 videos released so far and all of them are so worth watching and listening to to increase your conscious choice in this world of textiles. But a second video has my work as illustration on the talk of Sass Brown, researcher, writer, blogger (ecofashiontalk.com), and educator, her area of expertise is eco fashion, about inspiring, great design and traditional materials and techniques (it starts on minute 1:55):http://catalysta.org/passion/whats-cost-fashion/

World of Wearable Art 2014

And the story behind it? I’ve heard about this competition a few years ago and was always curious to enter it. So in 2014 I decided to do it. I designed a beautiful garment of the East princess in my mind and bought some fresh water pearls for decorating it, just to finally realize that I misunderstood the conditions of the contest and had to send the pictures of the finished piece already, because I was a first year entrant, and I didn’t have another 2 months to do that, as I thought. So I had a choice – do I step back, because it was the last day to send the photos or I send just any photo of my finished pieces? I decided to send what I had – I chose the blue dress I made for ballerina and sent it. To my surprise it was accepted and I had to reproduce the dress to send it to New Zealand. Wish I could have seen my Princess of the East Wind performing on the stage, but New Zealand was just a little bit too far, but just a little bit Smile Glad to be the finalist of the contest though.
