Femininity

Female makers are near and dear to our heart.  When our founder traveled to Guatemala for New Year’s this year, she was not only awestruck by the sheer beauty of the country and people, but also the culture of Mayan weavers.   When she learned a friend had produced a documentary for her graduate research project about the social, cultural and economic implications of weaving, in particular among indigenous women, she felt compelled to share.  See more here.

Fashion

New York Fashion Week is upon us.   Increasingly, designers and brands are questioning the purpose of a fashion show, and looking for ways to, as Leon put it, “insert fashion into culture.” If the point of a show is to appeal to consumers, rather than cater to the needs of the fashion industry’s professional class, then why should conventions like the traditional static or catwalk presentation obtain?   We love the idea of Justin Peck’s ballet itself serving as Opening Ceremony’s “show” but do believe New York will remain as the hub for “cool-kids.”
