more florencia kozuch!

Florencia part II...

Textures, materials, embroidery, knitting - delicately soft and fiercely structured with details reminiscent of tribal artifact. The silhouettes look like something from a fairy tale, and I mean that in the best possible way!

Oh it's bold alright! But it's wearable, wonderful & completely thought-through.
Bravo Florencia! You are going places!

An interview form Fault Magazine:

FAULT: How are you feeling about your debut at this season’s London Fashion Week?

Florencia: I’m very exited, if not a little terrified! I cannot think of a better platform to do my catwalk debut. It’s a great opportunity for a young designer and I’m really looking forward to it.

FAULT: Argentinean tribes and rock’n'roll acted as inspiration for your graduate CSM collection. Where have you found inspiration for this season?

Florencia: Well, this season is a mix-mash of all things Argentinean – from crocodiles to sea urchins, gaucho hats, riding trousers and wools from the Patagonia. I’ve been producing my collection in my home city of Buenos Aires, working with local manufactures and traditional products. So I hope you will see a slicker collection but I’m still experimenting with textures and silhouette.

FAULT: Textiles play a vital role in your design aesthetic. What sort of detailing can we expect to see at Fashion Week?

Florencia: This time there will be embroidered sea urchin spikes – some painted and some in their natural colour – masks and necklaces as well as interesting knits. I have used chunky virgin wool for coats and hot pants. There are also some reptile armour-like details in Cayman skin from Formosa.

FAULT: Which is your favourite piece and why?

Florencia: At the moment I am sea urchin obsessed! So I guess it’s the open back black and blue dress with embroidered spikes.

And here are 3 photos of her new pieces I think.

I'll write more about her tomorrow but for the time being feast your eyes on this...

Unable to sleep again. Partially because I'm watching Mad men like there's no tomorrow and partially because I have things on my mind... It is a strange period it's what it is. So many things to think through. Tie all this loose ends. It's times like this that make me wish I wasn't the procrastinator that I am... Even with this blog I am. Sometimes I could just smack myself. But on to merrier topics! Cleavages and whatever a back cleavage is!

Men love cleavages, because they want boobies. But I'm more of a back cleavage type of gal. Because I don't have large breasts I suppose ... Never the less, I think there's nothing quite as appealing as an open back dress.
The only red carpet event dress that I never will forget is the Guy Laroche dress Hilary Swank wore for Oscars 2005. And Angelina's dress is something to remember too.

Guy Laroche's and the last three dresses are my very favorites. They're so simple and elegant, but they have some drama in them.
I only know Ashley is wearing The Row, as for the other two I have no idea.
