Dior celebrates its 70th anniversary in Paris at Les Arts Décoratifs



Christian Dior is the pinnacle of elegance, there is no doubt about that, it’s a fact. I knew Dior as a teenager with a keen interest in fashion, but I really discovered Maison Christian Dior during the internship I had at Dior as a part of my studies. Even though my internship was focused on marketing and management, I had access to a gold mine, ... More

I recently did some stitch embroidery work with the World of Sama. The black and white pieces were a truly hit so they may be part of my new collection. As a big fan of Pete Fowler‘s work (and stitch embroidery, obviously), I wish I could see his show! ‘The Needle and The Damage Done’ is a body of new and original cross-stitch embroidery made ...

Restoring Jackson Pollock’s ‘Mural’

Art experts at the Getty Conservation Institute are using X-rays, scanning electron microscopy and mass spectrometers to probe a $140 million painting by Jackson Pollock. For the past 18 months, the Getty’s researchers have been repairing effects of earlier preservation work on the massive 8-by-20-foot painting, while exploring the artist’s radical ... More
