Unravel: Knitwear in Fashion

My fabulous friend Stephanie was living in France for a few months just a short while ago and while there and before coming back to Canada she was able to do some traveling around Europe. One of her stops was in Antwerp, where she was lucky enough to catch a most wonderful exhibit at MoMu Fashion Museum. I was immediately intrigued when I saw her post, and by the end of it I was seriously amazed and drooling over the knitted avant garde fashion pieces. A huge part of me is aching to check out the exhibit myself in person. Unfortunately I don't see myself going to Antwerp any time before August 14th. Boo erns for me!

I seriously urge you to head on over to Stephanie's blog, which is Grey the Blog, and check out her post about the Unravel: Knitwear in Fashion exhibit. Here's two of my favourite pieces:

Completely ahhh-mazing, aren't they? I really wish I had gotten into knitting while I was still in fashion school...I think it would have changed everything! I think about all those days when I had to travel almost 2 hours to get to and from school on public transit, those times when I was bored out of my mind, the summers between school years...all wasted time that could have been spent knitting!! You mean I could have spent 9-12 hours in one sitting doing nothing but knitting?? Sorry, make that uninterrupted knitting time?? In a time when I had absolutely no responsibilities?? Grrrr...makes me so mad at myself for not taking knitting up sooner!!

Anyhoo, go here to see the rest of Steph's post about this amazing exhibit. It'll blow your mind. Seriously.


PS: I just want to thank Steph for allowing me the use of her photos...and for always keeping me up-to-date on what's going on in the fashion world!!

  2. Those are my two favorite pieces too! I would love love love to own something like the bottom one from Sandra Backlund- I've touched one in person at a store and it is truly an AMAZING work of art.
