Dressing and Dreaming: Exhibition Review

I’ve been hunting about in my archives for articles that I’ve written. I found this piece that was published in the Sydney Morning Herald’s Good Living section some time back. It’s an exhibition review of Dressing and Dreaming, which was held at Sydney’s Sherman Gallery. I thought I’d post it on the MISS MOSS blog as well. Here it is: Dressing and Dreaming: Copyright (c) Siobhan O’Brien 

Australian fashion designer Akira Isogawa

 

Fashion is no longer just about ornamentation and warmth, it has evolved into an art, beyond racks, runways, streets, even our bodies. Our first whiff of this, was when demonstrators and feminists in the sixties recognized t-shirts as the perfect vehicle for artistic, political and social comment. But, now clothing has gone beyond the need of even having to contain a body, or at least that’s what the ten artists think in the “Dressing and Dreaming” exhibition at the Sherman Galleries. (more…)

I Wish the World was Green: The Eco Issue

Today I dedicated to ranting and raving about all things green & sustainable in my March Newsletter 2010 – The Eco Issue. If you wish to read it, be my guest. It contains some interesting little tit-bits on eco-couture, designer icebergs and the like. I think I’ve had my rave for the day, so there’s really not much more to add. It’s all there in black & white: check it out! And see you next month for my monthly rave on…mmm…let me think…I’ll get back to you on that one! Ciao for now!

Rough Cut Diamond Ring

Rough Cut Diamond Ring


This Charming Man’s Edward Janssen has had many lives: he was born in England, raised in Australia and now resides in New York where he makes extraordinary things. One of his latest creations is a collaborative effort with Sruli Recht, which is this AMAZING Rough Cut Diamond Ring, which features a ten carat white gold möbius band with a hand tapped 16 gauge internal thread which allows the wearer to interchange the stone – black, yellow or white – depending on mood/outfit/whim. It is so unexpectedly beautiful, unique and mysterious, even a little haunting.

Nike Embrace Laser Cut Technology

Nike Laser Cut Designs


Can laser-cut designs really enhance player performance? These shirts are part of Nike’s Sphere Macro React line of men and women’s golf apparel which feature laser-cut vents that open when the player sweats and close when dry. Gimic or biomimicry? You be the judge. Read more on what’s next in the evolution of textile design at the fab Ponoko blog. And if this topic really tickles your fancy, there’s more info on fibre2fashion.

Dreaming of Dior

Dreaming of Dior


Isn’t life funny? Get this: my husband purchased the same gift for Christmas that I also purchased for my mother! Of all the thousands, well millions, really, of possible choices available out there, we were both taken in by the cover and then the contents of Dreaming of Dior, a new book published by Harper Collins. This gorgeously tactile publication, that encites such bizarre behaviour as clutching and caressing, traces the fashion adventures of author Charlotte Smith who had the good fortune of inheriting 5000 pieces of vintage clothing from her godmother, Doris Darnell. Each piece in this extraordinary collection, which dates from 1790 to 1995, has had a life of its own — this is where Charlotte steps in. She recounts whimsical and fascinating adventures which take the reader to cocktail parties in Monte Carlo, art galleries in Paris, weddings in Italy and the like. However, the book would not be complete without the stunning, exotic and unique illustrations by Grant Cowan. The cover is a real winner complete with touchy-feely felt and scrumptious black and hot pink a-la-miss-moss! I love it!

Miss Moss @ Tutties Boutique: Terrigal

Miss Moss Belted Kaftan in Turquoise and Choc Tribal Print

Miss Moss Belted Kaftan in Turquoise and Choc Tribal Print


It was a whirlwind meeting, but Jackie Donkin, the owner of Tutties Boutique in Terrigal, almost cleaned this label out of printed summer clothing. And it has been selling for her like hot cakes! Jackie loved the Belted Kaftan in Turquoise and Choc Tribal (pictured); and even purchased one for herself. This particular style, looks great with heaps of modern accessories – necklaces, chunky bracelets and the like; and is a fab throw on after the beach. It also looks good and feels great without a belt, for those days when you are just happy to mooch about and let the world pass you by.

The Queen of Fashion: A Biography told through the Wardrobe

The Queen of Fashion: What Marie Antoinette wore to the Revloution

The Queen of Fashion: What Marie Antoinette wore to the Revolution, by Caroline Weber


Not all books make you want to read them twice. Ever since I finished reading this book, Queen of Fashion: What Marie Antoinette Wore to the Revolution by Caroline Weber, I’ve been dreaming about reading it again. This superb/romantic/whimsical book, that was voted by the Washington Post as the Best Book of the Year, is sumptuous, evocative and informative. It charts the journey of a fouteen-year-old Marie Antoinette who crossed in a carriage from Austria into France, where she was stripped naked before an entourage, and dressed in French attire to please the court of her new king (a lovely way to meet your new neighbours, me thinks!!). For a short while, the young Marie Antoinette played the part; but by the time she took the throne, everything changed. In this book, the author recounts the radical restyling that transformed the young queen into an icon and shaped the future of the nation. A truly wonderful and engaging read for anyone interested in history, but a MUST for anyone who harbours a passion for fashion – such as moi! I first stumbled upon this book around a year ago. I was driving. Caroline Weber was chatting about her endeavour with an interviewer on ABC Radio National. It was an in-depth narrative about those enormous pouf hairstyles, for which Marie Antoinette became infamous; and the lengths to which the extravagant monarchy would go to out-do each other in the fashion stakes. According to Weber, these extraordinary boufant wigs even featured landscaped scenes complete with working windmills and minute farmyard scenes! I hate to think how these ladies’ necks suffered for their art – amazing but so, so OUCHIEEE..!

Miss Moss: Dreaming of Winter Collection 2010

It’s summer here in OZ, but I am dreaming of my winter collection already! There’s a theme going on in my mind: charcoal, chocolate with inspired insertions of colour, texture and drama. I’m due to pick up the most STUNNING fabric tomorrow – soft, charcoal wool with black beaded embroidery that dances around the hemline. The plan is for a go-everywhere/look-stunning-without-much-effort coat that is straight and long-ish (to the knees is ample). Then there’s another inspired bolt of fabric, a basic ruffle-upon-ruffle affair, that I intend to get made up into a long (mid-calf) sleeveless, cross-seasonal vest. I also have plans for tunics that require nothing else except lots of layers – leggings and such (these are made from a textured NZ fabric); a selection of comfy pants and matching cami’s; and an array of other jackets that are still on the drawing board. Now, where’s the snow?
