Sometimes when you see a design you can trace its roots and inspirations in the choices of fabric, color or textures or in the shape and forms it assumes. In this dress from G Sloane Couture, you can see two inspirations at work. The print in the fabric draws pays homage to the fabulous art of Gustav Klimpt. In particular, it reminds me of the Portrait of Adele Bloch-Bauer though it is clearly not a copy of that dress or his work, but something inspired and re-imagined from memories and admiration for Klimpt’s work. The form of the dress is very original, with its squared lines and offset angles – and in it I can see the architectural work and Art Deco influence of Frank Lloyd Wright.
International Fashion Week 2010 sponsored by Glance Internation began today and will continue through the 18th with 5 fashion shows each day. Can you imagine the excitement and all the great fashion on display? Just to give you an idea, take a look at this IFW10 Exclusive design from G Sloane Couture. It’s called Cloud Nine and wearing makes a person feel like they are floating on Cloud Nine with its fresh creme de menthe color that should make even the Grinch smile.
The dress is a hot weather and sunshine dress and made me think of villas and sunshine and the Greek islands and so I went to Armenelos – a new sim in the multi-sim Calas Galadhon parks. Yes, parks created just for people to enjoy – no stores, no rentals, just pure pleasure. It’s a beautiful complex if white stucco houses with stairs and sidewalks that wind and meander like an ancient village up the mountain. It’s pure pleasure which means it’s a Greek version of Cloud Nine.
