Narelle Dore's Art Fashion Alchemy From Antwerp

Women At Sitting Rock Collection / 2011 by Narelle Dore

Antwerp-based designer Narelle Dore's designs really epitomize the artful fusion of fashion + the environment + site specific poetry. Her neo-romantic spirit is deeply rooted in handcrafting techniques (a cool fusion of crochet, knitting, macramé), extensive visual research, as well as her studies at the prestigious Royal Academy of Fine Arts Antwerp

I am very curious to see what this designer concocts for Friday's Green Fashion Competition at Amsterdam Fashion Week. Stay tuned for more coverage on this event.

For now, you can learn more about Narelle's artistry and fashion alchemy on Not Just A Label, where the above photos were sourced from. This 2011 article from Dazed Digital also features an 'organic' installation/event that the talented designer created for RA Boutique in Antwerp.
