ARTSYFACT BEFORE THE WORLD ENDS

PAPERCUTS

as a visual communication student, i’m constantly dealing with paper stocks and its not uncommon for me to get papercuts which i hate with a vengeance. like a sneaky ninja, papercuts strikes when you’re not watching. the damage will only be realised when you’re in the shower and it hurts. the beautiful pictures titled Papercuts, […]

SIR, YES SIR!

i’ve been through 2 years of national service. in these 2 years, there was alot of tears, sweat, vulgarities and blood. but, one of my fondest memory was when me and my friend Alfri (who was a fashion graduate) created an army inspired fashion show for our company as part of recruits’ night. the entire […]

happy halloween!

you know every halloween people on your facebook friends’ list will start posting photos of them in costumes, frolicking away. and its always that same old costume. super heroes, zombie nuns, angry birds, undead grandmother etc. same old same old. no one seems to be putting any effort in their costumes. until this. my friend […]

Comme Des Garcons S/S 2013 RTW

i’m developing a huge crush (pun intended) for Comme Des Garcons this Paris fashion week. i quote style.com‘s Jo-Ann Furniss saying ‘ “Crushing” was the answer.’ it seems like the collection itself was extracted from the recycling plant where all materials fuses and interact with each other. the crowns made with biscuit tins and parts of a […]

Dolce & Gabbana S/S 2013 RTW

burlap is what’s hot for spring according to designers Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana. just make sure you have lots of baby power on. helps with the itch. but on a serious note, these burlap pieces and the earrings (just look at them!) are sex. couldn’t find a better word to describe it. image credits: style.com

family jewels

Denise Reytan could be the only jewellery designer i have seen that has placed so much effort and creativity through her design process. the story in every jewllery does not require a very complicated plot nor it requires fluffy vocabulary or words. but all it requires is chemistry and soul which i think Reytan has […]

going a lil’ crazy for fashion

Agatha Ruiz de la Prada S/S 2013. Agatha’s fashion can go a little crazy at times, not forgetting how Bruno (a character portrayed by Sacha Boran Cohen) actually managed to crash into one of her shows wearing a full velcro suit. definitely one of the most memorable fashion moment compared to Naomi Campbell’s fall during […]

ART-er rubbish 2

i’m sure everyone is familiar with the kryptonite. yes the dreaded crystal superman will pee in his underwear for. or if you’re more ferosh, you should know about the Chanel fashion show for Paris fashion week where gigantic purple crystals graced the runway. what makes these 2 crystals coming from very different background so captivating? […]

ART-ter rubbish.

Austrian artist Christian Grillitsch is doing “Velodrawings,” which is a hybrid of controlled chance. His tool is not a brush, pen, pencil or anything conventional but rather his handy BMX bike. Oh yes we have seen many delinquents (i mean active teenagers) partaking in extremely skilled stunts at parks but i personally do not see the connection […]

from foam balls to laundry bags

when is the last time you happen to look at something so common and had a eureka moment? Aisling Farrell did when she witnessed a magical moment with fabrics like organza n chiffon n PVC were rubbed with styrofoam beads. The static electricity causes the balls to hover in between them like a snow globe. […]

Ostwald Helgason is a creative duo made up of Susanne Ostwald and Ingvar Helgason from UK who are very proficient in textile creation n manipulation. but what caught my […]

Using only salad ingredients such as seafood, meat, noodles and vegetables. He sure knows how to whet my appetite. […]
