ombre
awesome

I love ombre. One of my ideas for my final project include designing screen-printed ombre shirts. But frankly, I best prefer it plain.

Dreadful Girl
bloody times

Dreadful Girl, as she describes herself makes indiscreet and snarky accessories for storing tampons, pads and condoms. It is cleverness most simply displayed.

swe-desi
the indian connection

Let me start by saying I love Scandinavian style, basically their decor and of course Marimekko is proof! I love Swedish style especially and I would love to visit the country sometime. This beautiful treasure below was spotted in a beautiful Swedish blog by a photographer named Flora. I am just delighted to a collection of matchboxes distinctly featuring vintage Indian ones. :)

Ice on ash
the force of nature

These hugely inspiring images are not surrealist art, no. These are actual aerial photographs of rivers flowing through the volcanic ashes of Iceland by Andre Ermolaev.

Life of Pi
a lesson on faith

Watching this film wasn't planned and I haven't read the book either. But I would call it one of the most beautiful films I have seen. The cinematography is brilliant and the 3D factor, although not very necessary, adds to the dynamo of the film.

Suraj Sharma is adorable as Pi, with his charming innocence, reminds you a little of Kunal Nayyar. The beautiful tiger of course, steals the show!

The crux of the film is a great lesson on faith which I myself stand by: whatever you believe is true for you.

MISTER FINCH
non-violent taxidermy

Mister Finch (who doesn't reveal his first name) is a textile artist based in Leeds, UK. He is going to be the first of the many textile artists I will be featuring in this blog, since the I am studying the subject this semester.
I love his work because he uses vintage and recycled materials which gives a very authentic, loving and genuine feel to it. Also, it reminds me of fairy tales and fables and childhood.

claire pettibone
fragile gorgeous

It's amazing how I have never heard of Claire Pettibone before. But it's never too late I guess. I would say that she has the most exquisite and original style of creating. Her latest Heirloom collection has the most beautiful pieces I have ever seen.
Bridal wear is challenging to create, if you ask me, since there are certain rules to follow and you have to be careful that you are not getting too repetitive, but Ms. Pettibone's bridal designs are so original and different but beautiful and elegant at the same time.
