The Art of Photography

Meet Gosta Peterson

On my previous post, I mentioned Gosta Peterson the photographer, a man who saw beyond colour, the man who against all odds, made a model's dream come true.  Naomi Sims.
Peterson, a Swedish born who migrated to the US in the late 1940's.  As an illustrator and a self taught photographer, Gosta Peterson worked as a  fashion photographer with the New York Times. His images are what I describe as works of art and purely timeless in its own style. 
Here are a few of my favorite shots

Eclectic Fusion!

I came across this wonderful video clip of fabrics.  It captured my passion of prints. The clashing prints, colours, and style. If that wasn't enough, adorned by a beautiful tune to go with it.

  I just had to share it! Watching this clip, was like opening a box full of unexpected goodies. Just nice.

I hope you will enjoy it, as much as I have.

Botanically Haute!

Nature, Art & Haute Couture!

The botanical garden that grew on a Paris runway splashed with exotic colours and artistic creation of flowers made into frocks out of sumptuous fabrics such as, silk taffeta's, satin, chiffon, tulle etc....

 I  have gathered Dior's 2010 collection that I really like, combined them with images taken last summer (which I think), create a good story line.   One would ask why 2010 while it is a new season, well, time has no effect on me, as I am more about style and design.

I like how John Galiano,  (former designer of Dior) embraced the idea of Dior's first collection (Carolle Line) that was later on known as the New Look in 1947.  What stood out about the "New Look" was the enormity of scale and proportion of frocks.  Christian Dior used expensive fabrics lavishly to create a pyramid like silhouette, others described it as an hourglass look.
