Weekend Reading: Inside a fashion studio, changing shapes, and doing more
Just a few links for you this week while we’re out of town! Above is a photo I took on the plane over San Francisco on our way out to lovely PS. California has been treating us very well, but we’re headed home later today.
- Go inside the studios of Nanette Lepore, a designer who is really committed to producing clothing in New York. Elizabeth Cline writes, “The theme of Lepore’s latest collection is ‘handcrafted,’ an appropriate homage to the ecosystem of highly skilled professionals responsible for engineering her designs.”
- How our silhouettes have changed over time, and what that means. “Notably, the head – where our biggest asset, the brain, sits – has been the most overlooked part of the female form when it comes to the sexual male gaze.”
- Keep your doing and your deciding away from each other. I keep thinking about this article this week. I actually feel like there are lessons in this for becoming a more productive sewist.
Have a great weekend, folks. I’ll see you next week when we’re back in the studio!
