I always had love for skulls. Just so dark and mysterious. This is our foundation of who we are and what we will be after we are long gone. Life is just amazing isn’t it?
I just recently heard about footwear designer, Kobi Levi. He’s designs are always in the realm of fantasy with such a fun elements. Sometime provocative, but it’s kind of refreshing to see designs that’s not usual and purely conceptual.
Kobi Levi graduated from Bezalel academy of art & design, Jerusalem 2001 and specializes in footwear design and development/making.
Guggenheim will be featuring ever growing YouTube exhibition in the next month. There has been more than 23,000 submissions from 91 countries for this exhibition, and the 125 shortlisted videos can now be seen on the YouTube Play channel.
“The jury will now select their top choices to be revealed and presented at a special YouTube Play celebration event at the Guggenheim Museum on October 21 and on youtube.com/play. The final videos selected by the jury will be on view to the public at the Guggenheim Museum from October 22 through 24, and available to a worldwide audience on the You Tube Play channel.”
YouTube has been a wonderful tool for average people to communicate and share videos with larger audience without the need to move away from your computer. Our networking with the world is getting easier and easier by minute!
Jolis Paons. I honestly don’t know who she is but, this dress is so incredible I thought more people should get to know her work.
“For my Creative Processes class I designed and made this paper dress purely out of phonebook paper! I pleated, stuck, sewed, and glued everything by hand.” says Jolis on her Flickr page.
Awesome work Jolis!
Urban zen by Donna Karan
“The Urban Zen Foundation creates, connects and collaborates to raise awareness and inspire change in the areas of well-being, preserving cultures and empowering children. We design forums, partner with existing organizations and bring together experts to define solutions and implement action.” -from their website-
well, basically what they do is…
Make beautiful dresses.
Help people in haiti.
Donates part of their profit to people.(10%)
“empowering children”(that’s what they said on the website)
all the good stuff.
So far this sounds like the perfect organization that helps people and make beautiful clothes.
And it truly is if their dresses were not $700+ each.
I mean…… that’s too expensive for what it is!!!!
and if they are selling big pieces of jerseys for that much money…
maybe they should be little more generous with their profit share… (20-30% maybe!?)
But don’t get me wrong! Over all I think Donna Karan did a very good job!
The dresses are truly breath taking I wanted every single piece of this collection!
