I follow a blog written by Barbara Mazzoleni in Milan, Italy. It is Patternprintsjournal.com . She posts the most incredible photos of high fashion, patterns, textures and colors I have found. If you register via email on the blog you will get a wonderful set of inspirational photos every day. Some of it is wacky, some of it is thought provoking, all of it opens your mind to other possibilities. People are doing incredible things with fabric. You can submit your work for her consideration too.
Decorative arts, fashion and design extend our vision with a patina that shines, an aesthetic that billows with promise. No suffering, no guns, no turmoil. A joyous spot in my day.
