  1. ROPE ART by NEON ZINN

    This spectacular piece was made for Lulu of Thievery Corporation

    A few weeks ago I did a trend post on the use of rope in interiors, apparel and accessories as it was something that I quickly saw as a trend that inspired me.

  6. ART MEETS FASHION: FORTMAKER’S AND “THE DRESS PROJECT”

    We recently came across The Fort Makers,  a group of artistically gifted friends in the creative center of Brooklyn, New York. Calling themselves “urban folk artists”, they are a great example of artistic collaboration and speak to the notion, two heads are better than one. The collaboration was started in 2008 by Founder Nana Spears […]
