Traditionally modern :)



stitched pouches

It always inspire me so much to see some of the ethno-folk hand-crafted items.
And I am so happy to see that these traditional, ethnic, elements are so modern and trendy, especially these days. There are many fashion designers using folk, ethnic, tapestry items as inspiration for theirs creations.

These are some shoots I took today, passing by the Ethnographic Museum here in Belgrade.

stitched gloves

There is also a fantastic exhibition : “Memory Update - Ornaments of Serbian Medieval Frescoes”  at The Museum of Applied Art featuring many gorgeous Serbian ornaments.

There is a beautiful video on Vimeo  about the making of the exhibition - created by my friend Piki that I strongly suggest you to watch.

Memory Update from Osvežavanje memorije on Vimeo.


Hope that this may be inspiring to you as well:)
I took many pics at the exhibition myself and will make a separate post about it.

Happy February,
Katarina

Daa, divno. Neverovatno je koliko su nosnje sa ovih prostora inspirativne, stare, a tako moderne, tj. vanvremenske. Mislim da mi je omiljeni zadatak u srednjoj bio transponovanje nosnje u moderan kostim :)
