Premiere Vision

Yesterday I had the opportunity of attending Premiere Vision. There were oodles + oodles of textiles (as you can imagine). One could easily spend days strolling through the exhibition center and not see half of it. It was a great introduction to commercial textiles.

I have to say by far my favorite part was hands-down Textprint, where newly graduated designers display their fresh work. All of the 24 students work was exceptional, from the graphic patterns, intricate weaving and sophisticated color palettes - it was truly an inspiration overload.

A Brief Intermission

Gosh- I've been a stinky lil' updater. Honestly, I've been deep in the grips of everyday life and adjusting to the many new lovely changes that surround me.

One of those changes is settling into my new life here in Paris, which includes, stuffing my face with baguettes, drinking far too much wine and learning to maneuver my way through the red tape. I've also just re-entered the school scene! I'll be spending the year at Parsons Paris focusing on textile arts. I hope to start posting some of newly discovered skills...stay tuned!

P.S. very excited to have the invite I worked on with IAAH featured on 100layercake's fantastique wedding blog -cool stuff!
