A Way Beyond Fashion

Flora Project by Carla Fernández

Finishing up writing assignments and then I am off to Tribeca to see A Way Beyond Fashion at apexart. I hope to report back on Carla Fernández and her 'Square Clothes for Rounded-Minded People' installation. I love her Flora Project - 'a mobile workshop/fashion-laboratory that travels Mexico visiting indigenous
 communities, especially women’s cooperatives and creators of handmade textiles. Flora
 has developed a unique pedagogy where participants in their workshops
 can communicate through design even in those places where only indigenous
 dialects are used.'

Stay tuned. In the interim, here are more Flora workshop photos.
