“In Chinese, the upcoming lunar year is directly translated as ‘Year of the Yang’ but the meaning of the word ‘Yang’ is often lost in translation and could mean sheep, goat or ram. However, the most popular expression generally accepted is ‘The year of the sheep’.

The New Year period is the busiest and is considered to be the equivalent of American Thanksgiving in China.

“The significance of the Chinese New Year is primarily familial — it is the one holiday that every member of the family will do his/her absolute best to return home to celebrate the end of the year with the entire family, akin to the American Thanksgiving, for family gathering and to give thanks, all of which centers around FOOD!”

Happy Chinese New Year!

I met Gabby Malpas at an art and fashion event last year. It was such an honour when Gabby approached me to do a collaboration with her. I immediately said “Yes” to Gabby without know anything about the fabrics. But I knew, whatever fabrics she presented to me they would be beautiful and of great quality.

                                          

Firstly, let me introduce you to Gabby, a talented artist. Gabby’s current works are images of things she has bought, eaten, and picked around Sydney. Joyful and chaotic images which aim to put a modern twist on the extravagant Dutch still life genre. Instead of rare and exotic flowers, her flowers are blooms picked and grown locally or available from a greengrocer.  The priceless ceramics in Dutch paintings are replaced with items found in junk shops and yard sales but painted with care and attention as if they too are Ming vases. Her artworks are beautiful, bright, and colourful. Every time I look at her art, they bring me lots of smiles and happiness.

‘Pale pink tulips’

When I received the fabrics from Gabby I was very impressed with the designs. The fabrics are so soft to touch in satin and silk. The fabrics are digitally printed with Gabby’s original art pattern repeat based on her paintings of blue and white ceramics and the other design has repeated of Tiger Lilies flowers. They are just stunning don’t you think?

So to compliment her traditional blue and white  designs, I did a twist on traditional meets modern design, I transformed her fabric in a elegant Cowl neck design blouse. What do you think?

 

With the Tiger Lilies fabric I came up with two designs. One design is a sleeveless top with a tie up around the neck. The second design is a  square like cut kaftan.  As you can see I used the same fabric  but it has given me two different looks.

 It was fun working with Gabby, she is so lovely and has great sense of humour. I like that about Gabby. She is authentic and genuine artist.

Thank you for this opportunity Gabby and I look forward to working with you again in the near future.
