Sisters creates amazing wall installation with Up-cycled fibre

We are sisters Lauren and Kass, co-founders and artists behind Crossing Thread. For as long as we can remember, we’ve been exposed to the wonderful world of fibre from an early age, both practicing dance for 13 years+. We grew up in a world of costuming and embellishment; sequencing, beading and sourcing trims for our dance costumes and visiting many fabric stores with our mum and fittings with our seamstress. Being dance duo partners throughout our childhood, we were frequently misunderstood of being twins.

Our closeness in age allowed us to navigate through life, with either one of us one step ahead at any given time. Gradually, the “big sister / little sister ” titles dropped off, as we each looked to each other for support, guidance and inspiration.

Our parents brought us up in an expressive environment where we encouraged to voice our feelings, stand up for what we believe in and attempt new things. Creativity was and still is celebrated in our family; with our grandfather being an enthusiastic calligrapher and oil painter (who still paints today!) and our dad an architect whom also builds our looms. We believe to live a creative life is one of manifestation and curiosity. We hope to continue this cultivation of creativity in our family.

From the lair of wacky and surreal: a list of Pinterest’s trending design

b9013e116d71812b9f59be76b4e925c5

 

Design can be interactive: engaging, intrinsic or demonstrative pending on the motive of that content’s creator. And carry-on with creativity in colours, pattern and form. And most importantly, means. Some designs are used as mediums for communication and interaction. And  fashion is one key instance of this information flow. It could either be interactive, dynamic or distracting; mostly due to the creators discretion.

Colours, shapes, and  the general forms are to an extend, determine by social trends ; what celebrities are wear, or most people like. But there are others designed and curated in isolation from those influences . Crafted out from the designers’ inspiration; unencumbered by tastes or market dictations.

These designs are somewhat- and at times– seem to be quaky and surreal, as their forms are new hence challenging for most of us to regularize. Most are classified by our senses of normalcy as as surreal and out of touch.  Picking exclusively from interest ,@Ausquerry lists some of the wackiest and some what strange fashion design ideals floating around the pin-space .

Benjamin Shine’s dynamic textile art in Paris CFW.

A new series of Tulle Flows  exhibited along side the Artisanal collection launched at the Couture FashionWeek in paris january and it stood out of the total collection. One of the reason was it wasn’t just fashion but also a sculpture; dynamic , flowing sculpture. The work of English artist, textile designer  Benjamin Shine

Parting way from its hardwood, and marble origins, Shine seek to force through fluidity, in the large face bust made from very thin , light textile materials and held together in place with pins. Unlike his previous projects which were installations and only displayed for visual purpose,  this Tulle Flow came attached to clothes allowing it more free movement than other traditional  displays.

Retaining the dominating theme of his general work. This new Tulle Flow was no different , but was a little bigger than previous works distinct in direction of purpose. It depicts the face of a woman on white , on an evening white dress.
