I would like to discuss at what point storage becomes fashion.
How can clothes prevent waste/waist.
What is the preclusion that associates space with travel and how can i get my fashion to arrive me in style.
What types of art are fiber-free and which artists will autotrope art all together.
Where will my clothing find me
Where will my surroundings find my clothing.
Do these questions preclude waterproofness.
I never can tell if nudists like clothing. i think models must be the most up to date on clothing.
I think nudists would like clothes more if they were someone elses.
Would clothes like nudists…i don’t think they would have a “like” perspective. maybe aversion.
Nudists and models probably at least may not like the same clothes.
Fashion almost seems more about the generation/creation of it than the item itself…i mean it can almost be less and less about the item and more and more about how it was made. half of that is what goes into brand marketing anyways or prestigous jobs in a factory.
The only way that people are going to locate their garment/brand of choice is by looking for it and that takes all kind of approaches such as targeting a price…a demographic…a style …and or store.
Unless they just happen upon something they love…they might have to source a product by the material its made of or where its made etc. Etc.
So naturally media is changing…guided by search engines and access to infinite amounts of information. we are all geared to have perfect access to self expression and the styles we need and love.
Starting this business has been a really interesting foray into hand sewing. i have always been a fan of handsewing…i think of it more craftly than persay machine sewing. this may be an artistic call may be a bias.
I have never invested that much money into machine sewing and most of the machines i was given or bought ended up malfunctioning past the point of my ability to fix them at the time.
Handsewing has worked for me in quilting as well as in my avant garde clothes making. i have had some concern about the strength of the stitching and whether it will hold up under wear etc.
Let me explain my assessment of the strength of a handsewn garment, as it was a concern for me…perhaps the shopper has similar predication.
I have worn a few of phader ewaw designs both with them ripping and with them not ripping. usually they rip if i wear them very tight and not if i wear them loose. i also find this with clothing i buy that is manufactured..even expensive stuff…sometimes garments will rip even on first wearing…sometimes not from being too tight.
But some of the stuff won’t rip that easily that is hansewn and can be worn pretty tight. i guess all clothing requires a certain amount of handle couture or not.
Phader ewaw does not seem to be less strong structurally than other brands and certainly because its handmade some mass production type mistakes are avoided. though if seam rips do occur they can be fixed very easily with a thread and needle, which is nice.
So during my time sewing as a couture dress-maker, garment-maker i have come to find myself getting to knowhow to make these garments work on their own.
I just love couture because it is hand sewn and in this case hand patterened. getting the garment feel and “cast” is like nothing else when doing this process.
Because couture is known as a lined garment…i had to take real creative license when choosing to make things unlined. i feel like couture often is about how the body is under the outer layer or design. i feel that inmodern day couture unlined garments are just as couture because of the way the body is positioned to be unlayered…in fashion.
As some of the modern lingerie is more of a fashion statement rather than a couture accessorie…i figured layers are fine however the modern dresser is more likely to do this layering as choice or creative attiring rather than the dressmaker.
This is very much the fun of life due to the fact that our clothing choices are innumerable, the figure is exquisite and the under garment/lining can be positioned or not by the wearer.
When assesing this process ii find that it is not an economic perfunction but really more of a way to connectthe visual aspect to the personal style, not simply a layered dress but a way to access that mode…ie couture/fashion as an irresistable interactionwith multiple garments.
The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2014 annual report for this blog.
Here's an excerpt:
A San Francisco cable car holds 60 people. This blog was viewed about 740 times in 2014. If it were a cable car, it would take about 12 trips to carry that many people.

One of the things i have started to really love is how fashion can take bits and pieces from all the ages. it seems to go in waves accessing different segments of interesting historical era or particular geographical demographic. as if the fashion industry conspires to take us out of our time or place and experience a new life.
Fashion takes english jackets and tweeds, asian kimonos etc etc. for me sometime it is almost dress up…or could be. What is the point and why. What is the art that does this sampling of cultural information.
Obviously its just the look…but why does our eye gravitate to these designs…is it beauty, or is it ever just a political sentiment with that specific time or place. Does fashion have to sell itself as an experience, does it have to mold the viewer more than just through the eye.
And why does this art recycle/repurpose so effectively. is it to draw new trains of creativity through the designer so as to access something totally new…with a certain feeling, an era of grace, state of mind etc.
