Karen Ingham ‘Pollinator Frocks’ Collection

26 January 2011, 15.21 | Posted in FASHION WITH A CONSCIENCE, Fashion | No comments »

Artist Karen Ingham  took on the ambitious project of saving the shrinking populations of bees and other pollinators, by creating “Pollinator Frocks,” a series of apparel  treated with a nectar-like sugar solution that will attracts and nourish bees and the like.  She even created outfits for separate occasions: day-wear to draw bees and butterflies and evening-wear for nocturnal critters such as moths. While the poetry of having butterflies on my dress can seduce me, I don’t know about being  surrounded by moths? But it is for the good of the earth. Moths don’t bite. A look at the fabrics on the flip while the video explains the process more in detail.Via Ecouterre

First U.S. Lanvin Fashion Show In Miami!

Lanvin3 368x540 First U.S. Lanvin Fashion Show In Miami!

Following on the heels of its first U.S. retail location in Miami, Lanvin yesterday held a charity runway show (in what appears to be largely resort 2011) for Project, a neonatal intensive care facility. Perhaps inspired by Marc Jacobs Spring 2011 show, the runway featured nightclub lighting and the clothes featured spoke to what designer Alber Elbaz is so perfect at–designing modern chic looks that look and feel lush and are capable of being worn by a woman of any age. Elbaz seems not to worship women, as much as appreciate their complexity and mystery. And like a great athlete, he makes it all look rather effortless and easy to do. Though if there is any drawback to the show, it’s that the gorgeous garments remind how much of a great divide exists between the runway and what is about to be offered up by H&M. Over sixty more images on the next page.
