Seeing Red…

In Daily Musings on July 11, 2012 at 9:14 am

I love this red dress. This is exactly how I would style it…Simple! This photo reminds me of walking down 5th Avenue in NY {which it probably is} ~ How I miss NY!!

 Red is one of my all time favourites when it comes to colour. Red is hot, and I mean in a sexy way, Red is passion, red is confidence! Red says, I know who I am, do you? Red nails, red lips, red shoes; a slip of a red dress, there’s just something defiant and elegant about the colour of love.  Here’s my collage of seeing red… Here goes!

To Illustrate With Love…

In Daily Musings on May 1, 2012 at 11:01 am

I’m constantly on the prowl for new and interesting subject matter to bring to you on a daily basis; because I love what I do, I’ll stay up untill the wee hours searching for that perfect something to peak your interest.  While perusing the marvelous world called the internet, I decided to research a obesssion of mine; the artist Rene Gruau, whom I absolutely love. 

Rene was a fashion illustrator in the 1940’s, drawing for the likes of  Christian Dior for whom he completed many water-coloured illustrations at the height of Dior‘s career.  Rene was also hired by Balmain, Givenchy, Elsa Schiaparelli, among many other Haute Couture designers of the time.  Rene created some of the most gorgeous original illustrations for Vogue, Elle and other magazines of the same ilk, which are now priceless artifacts.  This type of fashion illustration is something you just don’t see anymore.  Is it a lost art?  I know designers of today still illustrate to get their ideas across, but you don’t see their drawings as artwork, as  much as you see the finished product.  The designer whose illustrations I do see on a regular basis is Karl Lagerfeld.

Since Rene’s work has been on my radar for some time, his drawings will be popping up from time to time.  In the mean time here are a few of my favourite images from his catalogue of work.

 


There’s so much more, I could post all day.   Have an amazing Tuesday.

Stay Inspired!!

I just had to post this photo. This is the hand of a friend of mine who had this beautiful henna artwork done for a wedding she attended on Saturday. More pics to come of the bride. I understand her henna work was beyond gorgeous.

Stay tuned.
