I came across this poem today, it made me cry, and my heart fill with love and inspiration. Its called ‘Stolen Child’ by William Butler Yeats and its my new favourite poem of all time. Yum.
I was filled with images of the colours and scenery described in the poetry, of cherry reds and the rushing greeny blues of the water. I want those colours in my life, now. My aim is to experiment with natural dyes and materials…I really want to try dying different linens and muslins and play with more distressed looks and textures. I did a lot of this during my A Level Textiles final projects and its something that Ive had on my mind for a while to get back to.
I found this amazing woman ‘Pearl’ who runs ‘Magnolia Pearl’, an interior designs company and clothing label. Im about to bombard you with some serious photos. Im in love, seriously. Nomnomnom!
Amazingly beautiful stuff, loving the neutral colours and textures. Reminds me of this dress i made yeeeears and years ago
Mmmm plans plans plans! Very exciting. Its so frustrating, ive got SO much material and lace that i have collected over the years, all over the other side of the world at my mums farm in England. Just sitting there, taunting me =P.
So yeh thats all for now! I think I will do another post on more inspiring brands and people, particularly Noa Noa and Moonalia, 2 amazing clothing brands I am madly in love with.
Until then, Bex xx
