TEXTILES & FABRICS

Today, many of these museums are sharing their fabulous archives and making them available through their smart interactive websites. Rijks Museum in Amsterdam, (European museum of the year - 2015), launched “Rijks Studio” in late 2012, sharing with everyone online over 200’000 artworks from their massive collection...and all presented in pin-sharp high-res imagery for you to zoom in on, to touch, to ‘like’ and to use in your own creations. Once you set up your own account with Rijks, the entire online collection of images are available to you. It’s endless what you can create with RijksStudio. For those of you looking for inspiration for your work, look no further than through the vast library of extraordinary items: clip & crop into the finest of details, just as we have done here showcasing the flower design of this extraordinary 18th century embroidered silk wedding dress worn by Miss Helena Slicher. 

 This dress is part of a display on right now in the “Catwalk” exhibition, Fashion at the Rijks Museum. 

From 20th February to the 15th May 2016.

Styling is a reflection of our personality – our tastes, our power of observation, our own cultural upbringing and our talent for originality.

 

Creativity is a fundamental human compulsion to invent or to compose. Take time each week to create your own ideas, however humble you may think they are. Look closely at the details in everything and notice the colours, the shapes and the deep inner feelings you have when you are attracted to something. 

 

Creative expression comes from the many objects we have around us in our lives, a bowl of flowers, a favourite teapot on a lovely table, a painting or a garden on a misty day.

 

Creativity is inspired by the wonders of our universe.  When you are in the right state of heart and soul, just like magic you can tap into the endless flow of universal creative energy and resources and inspiration comes straight to you. -
