cut it out!

Oh I have to apologize to you all. I have been a bad bad blogger lately. But so many things have been happening, I just didn't find the time to sit down and wirte an entry in the quality I want and that I think you deserve. But here I am again, and I hope you are not to cross with me.

For months now I have been obsessed with these beautiful laser cut-out Dresses Giles Deacon showed in his Spring/Summer 2012 collection. Well I am obviously aware that we moved on to Fall/Winter 2012 already, but as I still am utterly in love with them I decided I had to write something about them nevertheless.

When I first saw the show last year, I immediately had to think of Björk. Giles Deacons inspiration being swans (among others), he showed headpieces that where remarkably similar to the icelandic singers iconic swan dress which she wore 2001 to the 73rd annual academy awards.

But then, said laser cut-out dresses. And all I could think of was Bovey Lee. The Hongkong-born artist is a master of the traditional chinese art of paper-cutting. Sounds simple enough, but what this woman does is beyond imagination. Bovey Lee hand cuts chinese rice paper in a way so delicate and intricate, that it blew me away the first time I saw it and still does whenever I check her homepage to see if she did something new. Her work reflects her own life experiences, headlines and current events (e.g Tsunami) and just shows, that art truly does inspire great fashion.
