Mattijs van Bergen and Anouk Vogel - Flower Dress

Fashion designer Mattijs van Bergen and landscape architect Anouk Vogel in the Netherlands have come up with a very creative way of displaying flowers (editor's comment: unlike in the US, in the Netherlands flowers are very cheap and plentiful, so this might help with projects like this). Fashioned from strips of used bicycle inner-tubes, van Bergen and Vogel made a dress covered in tiny vases, each just large enough to hold a single bloom. The result is a living fabric that can change it’s appearance depending on the type of flowers used and how they’re positioned. When worn on its own, the frock possesses its own beauty, offering an empty canvas for a lifetime of shifting looks.

The dress was commissioned by the Architecture Centre of Amsterdam and designed to highlight the role of sustainable clothing in today’s fast-paced fashion industry.

I don't know about you, but I am done with Winter, especially after seeing these images.

A modern metalsmith/metal artist can be found working in traditional metals as well as in nontraditional materials. The designs can range from the classic to the extravagant, and the techniques can either be centuries old or decidedly current.

The wide range of expression preferences, design options, materials, and processes has lead within our field to unfavorable misconceptions, misunderstandings and in some cases even outright disdain between artists. Can the metal and jewelry field overcome its division and send out a much-needed signal?

We appreciate and respect our historical past and acknowledge that current materials have a rightful place in jewelry/object making!
