Found: Texture, Exotic Colors, Unique Designs

I’m always looking for interesting designs. Seasonal colors are a great source of inspiration. Whether you’re planning to recycle or create something new, you can find inspiration in couture fashion, costumes, and of course nature. Latest finds…The recent cover of Vogue China for September featured gorgeous Gucci gowns in sumptuous silk. The new woven Bottega Veneta bag begs to be held and displayed. Designed by Lebanese choreographer and designer Gerard Avedissian, the colors and texture in his dance costumes with tantours vibrate with creative energy. I also found a delightful dress by style guru Gary Harvey made out of recycled Financial Times newspapers. And I couldn’t resist adding a recent photo of radicchio and basil from my garden. I’m so inspired to hook and stitch new designs using Color Crazy Sari Silk Ribbon. I’m adding new colors to Color Crazy so do pay a visit and stay tuned forĀ  more.
