Vintage Inspiration

Embroidered silk dress from 1904, part of the collection from the Met Museum. Sometimes, it really pays to look at the history of your art to really see what it can all be about. It’s a pale comparison, but I’m pretty sure this is what I was trying to get at with the Baroque Punk series. Stitch direction can be so stunning.

    Exquisite. Splendid. Scrumptious. Etc.
    I would love to see some designs from UT that reference the Baroque without the punk or steampunk. Don’t get me wrong, I appreciate Baroque Punk (and ADORE all of UT) but I think there could be a niche there for gorgeous designs with less ‘genre’ to them…I hope that makes sense.
    Thanks for the beautiful image!
