Today I visited the Musee de Beaux Arts for the Jean-Paul Gautier show. I am not ashamed to say that it was not my first visit to this particular exhibit, nor will it be my last. I just can't get enough of the amazing designs heavily adorned with fur, ribbon, layered cloth and pleating or encrusted with beading, Swarovski crystals, french knots, and buttons.
I loved how many of the mannequins had projected videos for faces and were talking and singing; it gave the show an eeriness that seemed suitable to the dim lighting and overall dark, dramatic feel (Although there was one particularly flirtatious sailor who gave me the giggles).
Enjoy the photos, sorry for the poor quality.
Thank you for visiting the Vancouver Yarn blog! This space exists to celebrate and spread the word about local events, patterns, content, products and businesses.
Submit the details of an event or new locally designed knitting/crochet pattern, or other local news and I'll post about it here. Thank you! ~Janna
Hi, I'm Janna. I'm the proprietor and natural dyer at Everlea Yarn, and the tapestry instructor at The School of SweetGeorgia. I am a tapestry weaver, longtime knitter and 2013 graduate of Concordia University's Fibres and Material Practices program.
I created Vancouver Yarn in 2008 as a space to hold as much of the textile awesomeness that I could find in and around Vancouver. Here on the VY blog I mostly share about local events, pattern releases as well as share Community Highlights.
