The dress on my “Dreams and Fantasies” post reminded me of this art exhibit I went to almost exactly 1 year ago at Douz and Mille by a Chilean-born artist – “Tomás Rivas: Left to My Own Devices. “
I remember a similar feeling of enchantment when I saw his work, the ghostly French Beaux-Arts columns he carved into the walls, the fragile crumbling rosettes – all impossibly weightless, illogical, nonexistent. His work could’ve inspired a thousand runway collections…. he certainly would’ve inspired mine.
