Over the summer, while doing a show in Greenwich Village, I was approached by supremely talented fashion stylist Santa Bevacqua, who asked to borrow some of my scarves for a photo shoot. Needless to say, I was extremely excited!
Santa has an amazingly ethereal and otherworldly sensibility, and her work is somehow both lush and minimalist, bold and streamlined. She excels at creating rich and unexpected fashion juxtapositions which add texture and drama to the images. In addition to the link above, you can check out her work on Instagram, which includes her own gorgeous architectural, portrait and landscape photography.
So some of my scarves went to Italy for an eerily beautiful maze photo shoot that ran in L'Officiel. The photographer was Amber Gray, also tremendously talented, whose images conjure up a dreamlike world of their own.
In the end, the photo with my scarf in it (model on the right) did not make it into the feature. But it was great fun to see my work in a whole new way, in the lavishly decadent glam rock context of this shoot. And it was a real pleasure to meet Santa and her colleagues, all of whom were delightful. A lovely experience, all around!
May you and yours be merry and bright!
I am enjoying some quiet time after a lively, and thoroughly enjoyable, holiday show season. Big thanks to everybody who stopped by my table at the various shows to talk marbling - I never tire of discussing this art form, and love sharing it with new people! And many thanks to all who bought marbling for themselves or others - hope all purchases will be greatly enjoyed!
My last show was the Yorkville Holiday Exhibit & Sale, and it was really inspiring to meet, speak with, and admire the work of my very talented and experienced fellow participants. The vibe of the show is intimate, relaxed, 100% hand made and high quality - just lovely! Photos below are of my booth, and me showing a customer the patterns marbled on both sides of one of my scarves.
While my body is tired, my spirit is invigorated, and I am already at work planning new products for 2016. Wishing you all the very best of the holiday season, and a Happy New Year!
