My “Art” inspiration came from a photo titled “Antelope Canyon – Seeker of the Light”
by Icsom W Jones III. It is one of my favorite’s pieces of artwork and it hang’s in our living room.
While shopping for “Mad Men” fabric, I came across this beautiful Charmeuse fabric that
would work perfect for the “Art” challenge! The palette really speaks to the tones of light reflecting
off the rock surfaces. I’m trying to be more selective with the type of fabrics I use to create my
garments. In the past I’ve tended to fall in love with the fabric design and not necessarily
considered the drape quality. I thought this silky fabric would make a great Maxi Sun Dress. We took the photos at the “Bronx Botanical Gardens” for some desert ambiance.
