Not entirely sure how it's already December. The past twelve months have flown by so quickly. It's hard to believe in just a few weeks we'll be rolling into another new year. I have to say I'm looking forward to the fresh start. There's something about new beginnings that speaks well to me. I already have a list of resolutions that I'm toying with in my mind. They fall under the regular self-help categories of run more, eat healthier, read more often etc. etc. etc. We'll see how they play out. If they're anything like last years...
When I pulled up to the location of Tate Foley's studio Sunday afternoon I was sure I was in the wrong place. Tucked down an idyllic suburban street in Creve Coeur, it was the last place I expected to find this artist's abode. I knocked on the door reluctantly, half expecting no one to be home but was greeted by Tate who was all smiles and warm welcomes.
We headed down to his basement where his studio is located. There was a big Riso printer in the corner and shelves lined with design books and knick knacks. Tate gave us a whirlwind tour, showing how the Riso printer works, and unveiling some of the hidden gems of his studio - including a pack of playing cards with dinosaurs attacking humans in odd situations. After looking at a selection of Tate's work one thing was clear, everything he makes has a hint of humor.
New York Fashion Week kicked off yesterday in the states. Fashion month has officially begun and to celebrate the launch of the spring 2015 shows I wanted to take a quick look back at some of my favorite moments from last season. These photos are from three shows that I attended back at London Fashion Week in February but they never made it on to the blog: Eudon Choi, Nasir Mazhar and Central Saint Martins MA. These are some of my favorite looks and the pieces that are getting me most excited for the month ahead.
The Contemporary Art Museum in St Louis is holding a silent auction tomorrow night, called Art:314, to help raise awareness about local artists. I was over at the museum yesterday to get a sneak peek at all the work that is up for grabs. I've already made a list of all the pieces I want to get my hands on for my new house. I just found out that we've got a new place to move into later this month and I've already decorated the whole place in my mind. I can't wait to move in and get all my boxes unpacked. Moving is fun but the process of getting settled in takes a bit of time. I still feel smack dab in the middle of the process...
