Homage to Fortuny

For some reason, this seed capsule reminded me of the designer Fortuny, renowned in part for his pleated silk gowns.

Once I looked him up, there was much more to share.

I am tempted to replicate, in a more simple form, his jacket shapes.

It was quite interesting to learn more about the man whose name is an icon. His vision for design was tremendously appealing and influential in his time.

Here is the official Fortuny web site.

Even though I am more of a chambray and denim sort, I really love and appreciate beautiful textiles and fashion design. The only thing is, it does not suit my other great love, working in the garden.
