Liquid Fashions

Liquid-like fabrics grace Georges Chakra’s ‘Edition’ collection for Fall/Winter 2009. The outfits constructed of ultra-glossy black, wine and silver-grey material are both futuristic and glamorous. The effect is almost plastic-like, but folds, pleats, poufs, and opera gloves keep the effect sexy and feminine.

While browsing the net recently I came across an artist by the name of Petros Chrirostomou and his Giant Art display. I thought it was extremely interesting and wanted to share it with everyone. The pieces were created and exhibited in 2007. And most recently were in NY I believe. Enjoy Below is an excerpt that Chrirostomou wrote on his website on how he describes his work My work is concerned with object/context relationships and explores a gamut of ideas and methods in order to arrive at a finished product.In recent years I have developed a photographic practice that has enabled me to extrapolate ready-made objects from environments I have been influenced by, and regurgitate them to a desired effect. This "still life" photography, highlights the qualities in the objects that I would like to pronounce, and in most cases, by juxtaposing them with particular scenarios, subverts our expectations towards them. The sensation of the uncanny is achieved through
