If the art of macramè makes you shudder with flashbacks to overly crafty plant hangers or hippie chic gone awry, rest assured that there is currently a new fashion-forward twist on this ancient art of knotting and micro-webbing.
A group in Milan is organizing Macramè, a cultural project highlighting 'micro-creativity in fashion'. They are currently looking for independent (eco) fashion designers who are interested in showing their macramè-inspired designs at a fashion show in Milano in the end of November.
Visit the Macramè website for details on how to participate. (Do not worry. I will not be reviving the uber-sexy designs depicted in the vintage photos, above and below.)
