COLOUR, PATTERN & CONTAINMENT

Slowly but surely the international community is coming up to speed with the relationship between colour, pattern and containment with the new retrospective of Fahrelnissa Zeid coming soon to the Tate Modern in London, UK.

Slow Textiles Group members will be familiar with our CEO, Dr Emma Neuberg’s analysis of modernist abstraction in art and its relationship with psychology.  We have yet to read about this in other people’s publications but at least we can now live it in this exciting new exhibition! Message us if you’d like some seminars on the subject. TATE MODERN exhibition details here.

Traditional Painting Processes Converge With Open Source Fashion!

Ideas of story-telling and narrative in future couture clothing. A co-design melange by Susana Fernandez and Emma Neuberg.

Susana Fernandez, who worked recently with traditional carpet manufacturers, Real Fabrica de Tapices, in Madrid, paints her Cubo-Futurist painting inspired by artists such as Baranov-Rossine, Lyubov Popova and Natalia Goncharova and begins a process of transformation for the painting to be applied to Maison Martin Margiela’s open source dress pattern.

Some of the Slow Textiles Group Margiela dresses will be made in silk! Watch this space!
