Sunday matinée with Isabelle de Borchgrave and wonderful company.
All these were made with paper; such talent and finesse! Isabelle is a Belgium-born contemporary artist who uses paper in incredible ways. It was said that she began at a very young age, drawing all over the hardwood floors in her bedroom (take note, parents, haha). Since then she's gone on to recreate historical icons fashion moments like a gown worn by #Elizabeth1 and dresses by #cocochanel. Her famous collections are The World of Mariano Fortuny, Splendor of Medici, Papiers à la mode, and Les Ballets Russes. She has some #kaftan exhibits too. My favorite one is the portrait of Charlotte-Marguerite de Montmorency--the first gown in red.
I am glad her exhibit made its way to OKC. If you're in OKC, her works are on display till Sept. 9 at the OKC MOA.
After viewing, we did our own fashion workshop by making dresses out of paper. This was a relaxing activity.
Sometimes, the best things in life are free and colorful too.
That was how I spent my Sunday afternoon. What did y'all do?
