Now that I am retired each and every day feels like a holiday!
Nevertheless I went on a proper holiday to Ft. Lauderdale, Florida for November and December, what a luxury, I know!
The weather was amazing! One would constantly forget it was Christmas time. We spent our days being lazy, reading in the sun, going for long walks, having dinner outside a lot, even cruising. What else do you want?
Well, something Textiles, right?
Of course we went to one of my favourite museums, the Cornell Art Museum, in Delray Beach, a lovely little town nearby. The museum In the past I visited some quilt exhibitions there and an interesting exhibition about Crayola crayons.
This time “Art Couture: the intersection of art and fashion”, an exhibit with fashion of local artists and other artwork inspired by fashion. Here are some pictures of works that I found really inspiring.
Sonia Sanches Arias dresses were completely made of recycled materials, very inspiring.
I also loved these polyester life-sized 3D pieces. They made me think of the paper dolls we used to play with, constantly changing their outfits.
