No Woman, No Tweet

No Woman, No Tweet

There's an interesting article in the NYT from yesterday about people hosting parties with a "no blogging" "no tweeting" policy so that everyone can dance around drunkenly with lampshades on their heads without worrying it will be tagged on facebook the next day. Actually, it addresses more subtle concerns about privacy, people feeling comfortable about socializing in the present without fear of it being chronicled online by others, and the idea of the internet as the "new paparazzi" where everyone is a celebrity.

Design Within Reach

Design Within Reach

Chado by Ralph Rucci is a stunning fashion line that, for me, epitomizes couture with fine attention to detail and mind boggling small piece work. It seems he has made a series of vogue patterns! Home sewing ya'all!

Indie Shopping Haul!

Indie Shopping Haul!

I was at Urban Craft Uprising last weekend in Seattle, and one of the best parts about indie craft markets (after the DIY love, seeing friends and making news ones) is the shopping. I, uh, kinda went crazy this time and posted everything that I bought and bartered for on flickr. Urban Craft Uprising Glut of Handmade Goods.

The Uniform Project

The Uniform Project

The Uniform Project is a fund raising fashion project by Sheena Matheiken in support of Akanksha (an NPO whose mission is to provide education for India's thousands of impoverished children). Matheiken had a dress designed that she could wear in different ways every day for a year, as a riff on the public school uniforms she wore as a teenager in India and to help raise awareness the power of creativity to disrupt the unsustainable nature of fashion.

Waxing Poetic

Waxing Poetic

Javanese batik makers are refusing to copyright their designs as thier work is God working through them. Copyrights are confusing- I know Victor Papenak didn't believe in them as he wants production to be hyper local. Copyrights are all that is keeping my royalties coming in. I guess God only sometimes works through me. Thanks BoingBoing
