I am so excited! This painting is wonderful and colourful and contains one of my dresses! Today Johanne rang my doorbell asking me to come upstairs to her painting studio to see her latest piece. She was just finishing up. She hadn’t even signed it yet. Months and months ago, she borrowed some of my runway dresses for inspiration.
When I saw the painting I screamed!
This is the original dress. Actually it’s a skirt. Johanne’s model is wearing it all the way up as a bustier-dress for her painting.
And here is the artist herself. Johanne Cullen
Below is another painting that she did based on the same skirt, but she changed the original colours.
As I was styling a client on Sunday, we came across this outfit combination. We both loved it so very much that we needed to take a picture to capture the moment. She is wearing the orange-rust tuxedo jacket (I have only size small left) with the Art skirt in the first picture and with the grey linen Romantic skirt in the second picture.
Here we have a beautiful silk scarf in rust, fuchsia and kaki. This is the perfect example for all you earth tone lovers, of how you can add fuchsia to your wardrobe. The deep saturation of the rust and the fuchsia allow them to live very happily next to each other.
Encase in resin (secret technique)
Select, sort, make pairs
Assemble with jewelry fixtures
These are the steps that make a pair or Corteza earrings or a Corteza necklace. Elsa and her partner are based in Montreal. They have been making this jewelry for many years and you may have seen them at the tam tams, the Francofolies or a street sale. You can always find them at Boutique Katrin Leblond all year long.
Earrings $24 / 2 pairs for $40
Here she is in her workshop making pairs. The selction process is the hardest….sorting through the pile trying to make a set for a pair of earrings
