A bag or a museum? Is the bag named after the musuem or the other way round? I can't make up my mind: is the musuem famous thanks to the bag or the bag is a tribute to the contemporary art museum in Queens?
Many patterns and fabrics will pass by, and many artists will have their exhibitions on one of the floors of that flows, as fashion goes on...
When I first saw this bag, I loved it: after all is the IT bag from Proenza Schouler.
But on my first trip to Queens  this former high school (which by the way reminded me so much of the Fame school) transformed into one of the most cutting edge museum for contemporary art, the PS1, really  got me so inspired, that I really felt art flowing in my veins.
I came up with the solution of the mistery:

art influences fashion. 
Fashion is just a piece of matter. Art is soul. And the soul always moulds the matter.

Be Happy and Be full of Soul!


My fellow bloggers finally I manage to post the interview with Leanne Marshall. What I really have appreciated about her and her staff is the easiness to get in contact with her. I sent an email, and I got an answer.
Let's discover a glimpse of Leanne's creative world made of petals, waves, moon colour and heart shapes.
Enjoy it!

1. how did you discover your talent for design and fashion?
When I was young, I took ballet. My curiosity about design started then and I began designing my own costumes. 
2. do you or did you ever doubt it?
There have been times where things weren't easy, but there was never a moment where I doubted that I had the talent to do what I wanted to do, which is design.
3. what has given you strenght to struggle in this dog eats dog fashion world?
It's really about adapting. There will always be hurdles, but choosing to face and over come them has been my maker for success.
4. which is the piece you created you love the most?
My favorite piece is called the tuxi dress. It is so classic, yet completely original at the same time. 
5. on the other hand, which is that one you feel ashamed of (if you have one)?
If I am ashamed of a garment, it gets recycled and turned into something I am proud of. I never sell anything, or send it down the runway, if I am ashamed of it.   
6. what's your favourite colour?
probably mint green. 
7. from where you get your inspiration?
I get my inspiration from a variety of things. I have had whole collections inspired by nature, graphic design fonts, waves and even specific pieces of art. 
8. which is the first thing you created?
My ballet outfits were my first creations. But the first thing I sewed wasn't until high school.
9. who is the woman you create for?
I design for the woman who has a unique style. One who wants to look sexy in an atypical way. My ideal client is the one who wants to look ethereal everyday.
10. if you weren't a fashion designer what would you be?
I would be an illustrator or photographer, which are a part of my job anyhow.

Leanne's blog: petals and waves

your eyes tight shut, and you will be carried out upon the waves" (R. Tagore)


Good morning my fellow readers, don't miss my next post: I'll pubblish an interview I had with the one and only Leanne Marshall, winner of Project Runaway Season 5.
Just to refresh a little bit her work, her history and her style here these are pictures taken from the final runaway show of PR.

you don't want to miss it, do you?


Perfect afternoon out there, hanging in Florence on my own.
Perfect weather: sunny, warm and windy.
My camera alsways by my side, some easy shopping (look at the bottom of this post my latest purchases) and a lot of windows shopping.
Sometimes isn't being alone the best companionship?


Stay Happy and Enjoy your Day!
