I’ve been wanting to go to this museum for over a year now and finally this Sunday was the perfect day to go. The 1,5 hour train ride goes by quickly as the nature passing is beautiful as well (especially now that the leaves are changing color). It’s also so nice to get out of the city once in a while, get real fresh air and feel some quiet.
Anyway, Dia:Beacon was well worth the visit and above are my favourites (Fred Sandbeck first).

Found this subtle pink fabric and made a new dress.
Aprons have fascinated me for a long time for its functionality (made an apron-inspired dress in sophomore year as well) and so I used some of its elements for this design.
This design is very similar to the sky blue dress I made, but it’s one of my favourites so why not continue the style.
High slits on the sides
Front “apron” extends to back
Horizontal in-seam pocket in front
Hidden zipper on center back neck for closure
Beautiful captures from nature and everyday life/and objects.
The movie is incredibly GOOD (and crazy).
Can’t even say anything about it - you have to see it yourself.
NY : To do
Just discovered Kinokuniya, a japanese bookstore with an amazing selection of (art) books and magazines :
graphic-, product-, fashion-design, architecture, photography etc. etc.! A huge selection so spend some time here.
There’s mostly japanese books but there’s english ones as well. You’ll also find manga, very cute stationary & toys and a cute café where you can get yummy pastries.
