Mystical Fashion











"My life began with the discovery of the magic of chemistry, the interplay of shade and light and the double-edged problem of positive and negative" Erwin Blumenfeld






Erwin Blumenfeld was an experimenter with special vision for beauty and fashion.
An american photographer born in Germany. A jewish who escaped to USA. Erwin was part of the Dada and put his hands in paint, photography, writing, drawing & photomontage. His visual poetry was part of Vogue and Harper's Bazaar. He was the highest paid freelance photographer in NY. Many recognize him for his Vogue cover of Jean Patchett.
Erwin Blumenfeld was a true artist!
I wish today we could see more manifestations of art, more creativity, genuine adventurous artistic magazine covers.

DIY Denim & Leather






































I transformed some denim shorts from the 90's into this bolero/vest. Some sewing, patching & stitching with silver thread and voila!
I also created this belt with some leftover black leather. It is reversible, for the other side I used some light brown suede.
On the first picture I'm wearing a top & pencil skirt are from Norma Kamali for walmart collection. This two pieces have very good construction and fabric; you can't tell they are under $20 !!
