Photographs from my Pinterest board, Beyond Couture.
Ok...so I meant to elaborate a few days ago about this addictive little project I have created for myself... I call it 'Beyond Couture' because I am interested in gathering unique photographs that go beyond "trendy fashion." Images that cry out craft & one-of-a-kind and that illustrate how the art of 'dressmaking' has evolved through other disciplines.  I have so far discovered that this artistry has shaped photography, architecture, sculpture, contemporary art installations, cinema, performing arts...etc...and I find successful "interdisciplinary" influence extremely stimulating.  Funny enough...I have discovered that I am especially attracted to the creative use of 'hats' or 'head-pieces' and here are a few examples...If you are curious for more check out my Pinterest board HERE.
