School Daze

So my first day of fall semester is officially over. I made it and I wasn't eaten by any freshmen. Tomorrow starts pre sixteenth century fashion history. The teacher already has a great link up which I wanted to share with everyone. It's to an exciting exhibit that was at the Fine Arts museum of San Francisco. Titled Pulp Fashion: The Art of Isabelle de Borchgrave the exhibit features gorgeous gowns and costumes made from painted rag paper. They are so incredible you would never know they weren't fabric from the photos. What's also impressive about these costumes is that all the patterns on the paper are hand painted and the whole costume is a real work of art. Check it out, it's really awesome.

Make sure and take a look at the videos on the right hand sidebar. They give you an in-depth look at how she creates her costumes and where her inspiration comes from. The videos also show her collection in much greater detail.
