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.
