hello, it’s me again. It’s been a while.. After this year of making my own clothes I’ve never officially finished The Dress I Made, in fact I think I never really will. But I do think the project as such has come to an end. A year is long enough to make a statement, don’t you think? So here’s one last post to say goodbye for real. And, because I cannot sit still and I’m terrible at goodbyes, to introduce to you a new project!
A few weeks ago Eelke approached me with quite an exciting proposition: for another project he rented a RED filmcamera, the type they use for shooting movies. Wooohooo! But what to film? As it turns out, I can stop blogging (at least for a while), but it is entirely impossible to stop making dresses. Or tops. Or skirts. So when Eelke suggested to do a fashion movie instead of a photoshoot I already had a few items waiting to be shown to you. Thanks to Eelke, Ben and Victor I can now show them to you in moving images. It is the perfect way to finish this blog for real I think. I hope you enjoy it as much as we enjoyed making the movie!
And then the new project I want to tell you about. As a matter of fact I’m writing this blog from a house with a swimming pool on the roof (important detail) in Ho Chi Minh City in Vietnam. I’ve packed my backpack with drawing pencils, paper and my laptop, because I’ll be working in Ho Chi Minh City until december as a member of the Future Living Studio. It’s part of a supercool sustainable design project and we (european, american and vietnamese designers) will be working on the interior of an eco-lodge in Phu Quoc. So, if you haven’t pressed on the link already, you can here follow my design adventures in Vietnam.
