SCAD Museum: Carla Fernández

I meant to post this information a few months ago and somehow was delayed. The texture and creativity interwoven into this clothing is absolutely stunning.

Upon arriving in Savannah, one of the first stops was to the SCAD {Savannah College of Art & Design} museum to see the Carla Fernández exhibit “Think Twice”, she’s a fashion designer from Saltillo, Coahuila who gained international recognition for precise documentation and preservation of the rich textile heritage of Mexico’s indigenous groups.

These pieces were reinterpreted for the André Leon Talley Gallery with Fernández’s recent pieces, videos and a specially commissioned floral intervention by Flores Cosmos.

Carla Fernández’s pieces have been featured in Elle, Vogue, i-D, Wallpaper*, T: The New York Times Style Magazine and the Los Angeles Times.

Destination: Japan

FALL TRAVEL GUIDE

Team members began pre-holiday celebrations by taking a quick trip to Japan, yes you read that correctly, they were off to the Orient to relish in the natural landscapes and street scenes of Kobe, Osaka, and Tokyo before settling into the surreal season of giving with family and friends. I was immediately drawn to the evening street scenes, as there is something magical about being out at night, where the nonsensical and disjointed come together for absolute FUN!!!

Images of Tokyo Skytree Town taken from the observation tower in Sumida, Japan. Tokyo Skytree resembles a five story pagoda and is a the tallest structure in Japan. It is the second tallest structure in the world after the Burj Khalifa in Dubai.

 

Tennōji-ku, Osaka has a sprawl of skyscrapers with a 6th century Shitennoji Temple centered around green spaces. But, this area of Horikoshicho is a retro-style, neon-lit entertainment zone where late-night crowds hit pubs and snack bars.

This age old custom of traditional dress to attend the temple for evening prayer is striking, but seeing these young ladies with their 21st century cell phones definitely adds to their charm.

Travel stylishly,
