Artistically Beautiful

When discussing funding options for my art village project, a friend said that most of the grants he knew were technology based. He said that there was one that was recently awarded to a company that created a technology in fashion that replaced the need for people and could produce greater volumes of a particular item. I clarified that my vision follows the opposite movement which for me is a to return to the beauty and love of making by hand. I love the dedication and patience that goes into making with high quality and traditional techniques.

My dad lives in Pennsylvania and we recently visited the National Watch and Clock Museum. I could have spent an entire day looking at and reading about all these old clocks. Most of which still run today after so many years. There was one particular clock that took 20 years to make (started 1857). The Engle Clock is considered ‘scientifically marvelous & artistically beautiful’. I am fascinated with the nature and love that exists between the master craftsman and his instrument.

What a life to be so passionate to an all consuming yet rewarding experience. Through my own fashion brand and work I aim to reignite this appreciation of the way things are made. Instead of chasing the flow of mass consumption, I aim to inform and excite our patrons to see that together we can support the ‘slow fashion movement’. Consume less and have more in quality then quantity.

I could stay lost in museums and libraries so much to indulge in the pursuit of inspiration.
