JoJo Ma's Rock Paper Scissors

I admit I’m suffering from a slight case of the green eyed monster but congratulations are in order for JoJo Ma on finishing her grad project, what an amazing feast of images to enjoy, it must have been a titanic feat so her shameless self promotion is completely understandable.
Actions must be taken within the next few days to make the green eyes disappear, this happens when one gets too lazy to find the time to actually put that gray matter ideas to actual tangible work! I mean this is the 1st blogg entry in waaaaay too long arghhhh bad M…
Check out the blog she created to document her work.

Beatriz Camacho @ Colombiamoda July 2009

Austrian painter Friedensreich Hundertwasser was the inspiration behind designer Beatriz Camacho’s latest fashion proposal presented at the Cromos Runway at Colombiamoda July 28-30, 2009; the accessories were designed by Alexander Calder for prettifying effect.
A collection full of bold prints following a palette of earth tones contrasted against big necklaces and simple makeup. Gold was a big performer in this collection present in necklaces and sequined fabrics. Her color way reminded me a bit of the RLss09 collection even with the golden sequined pieces here and there, however even if some similarities apply Camacho’s collection stands on its own with pieces women anywhere would like to wear, with clever draping, transparencies and a certain richness.
The designer does not seem to have a web page sadly.

Isabel Henao @ Colombiamoda 2009

“Paisajismos” a word that translates roughly as “Landscaping” is the name designer Isabel Henao has given her most recent collection shown just a few days ago on July 28 at the Esika Runway at Colombiamoda 2009, a proposal strong in exploration of colors and textures that took 300 people and 90 days to make. Black, white and grey were the base colors for the collection with sprinkles of bright shades throughout it and the inspiration came from children stories and fairies.
Her pieces always boast a lot of craftsmanship, creating her own prints and special pleating, I was lucky to see her pieces and collection up close a few seasons ago and this time it’s a bit different in the fabrics she has incorporated and not much to been seen of her signature silk organza pleats but no disappointment here as it’s a good thing for designers to stretch beyond their comfort zones, she even has dresses knitted out of linen paper that are absolutely unique with hours of work behind each of them and the shoes from all 38 looks are unique to complement each outfit.
The linen knits look very lightweight I’m curious as to how they feel against the skin since the look like melted candy to me, somehow the colors on her prints remind me of fluffy cotton on a stick but for some unknown reason my head associates linen paper knit with itchy wool. And the feathery head accessories have potential for a spin about town ¿no?
