STAINED was created by artist Cara Piazza
as an unique experience for the public to engage with natural dyes
through the lens of experimentation, ritual and performance. The event
will challenge and delight the senses, inviting guests to participate
with different “sensorial stations”, all interacting in unique ways with
A tapestry will be suspended along side ritualistic vessels conceived by Alex Wolkowicz of Cave Collective, that guests can use to splash, bang and imprint their imaginations on to it.
A tent will be erected, where guests will play with scent and sound, with scents provided and conjured up by Natural Apothecary and beauty guru Jessa Bladesand sounds mixed by Cat Lauigan of Cave Collective.
Each station will combine all the elements of the human
senses of sight, taste, touch, hearing and smell and abstract them to
wholly immerse you into the world of natural dyeing.
Join us for a night of celebration of art and natural dyes, local food + cocktails, and unique experiences.
I've always felt guilty about throwing away scraps so was thrilled when I met Pauline from Counterpane who happily took a load of them off my hands. I sent her a giant box of scraps and *this* amazingness happened - those are all scraps from my very first SS12 collection (all except the backing)!
We also nailed down plans for an exciting holiday workshop - Merry Marbling - because yes, it will most certainly be merry. ;)
+ December 7, 2013 + 6-9 pm + Location TBD in Brooklyn Learn to marble with Clinton-Hill based fashion designer Ilana Kohn. Each participant will walk away with 1o marbled handkerchiefs (great for gifts!) and a swag bag full of local goodies. This two-hour workshop will be followed by an hour of holiday-inspired cocktails & cookies.
I can't even begin to express how excited I am for my friend Jennifer'sPOP-UP that is opening this weekend at the Hammer Museum in Westwood! Aside from being an amazing textile/clothing designer herself, she has one of the keenest eye's for curation out there. From what I have been seeing on instagram (@ermiegram), this is gonna be one heck of a shop and for folks in the la area, NOT TO BE MISSED!
I'm very excited about the marbled scarves that I created for the pop-up! Jennifer was actually in town a couple of weeks ago so we spent the most glorious day making them together at the Textile Arts Center which makes them even more special in my opinion.
Everyone should be sure to come on out for the book party launch of Lena Corwin's new book, Made By Hand at Mociun this thurs! And even if you can't make it to the opening, you can snag a copy of the book here. ;)

Folks! A random request here. Who wants a free marbling lesson? I need an extra set of hands this coming Friday, September 27, to marble the yardage for my upcoming Holiday 2013 collection! I should emphasize that I will not be working with you on your own pieces, however, you will get a serious crash course in large scale marbling and all its intricacies.. :)
Email me asap at email@example.com if interested!
It was such a surprise yesterday to discover that one of my dresses had been featured in the new Still Corners video, which debuted exclusively on vogue.com! I'm pretty blown away by all the talent that went into a production like this - the director, the amazing hair (Alison Brislin!), the great clothes and obviously the music! I'm so so thrilled I could play even a small part in this. :)

Here's a little video sneak peak of me teaching marbling from Lena Corwin's upcoming new book, Made By Hand, what promises to be the most beautiful be-all-to-end-all of craft books. I'm absolutely dying to see the finished product and try all the projects!
