This Way! Follow Me!

At Arts Council Nelson; I'm leading a sheltered life right now. The poster is from WOW, the Wearable Arts Awards, which was born and raised in Nelson but moved to the bright lights of Wellington two years ago.

  1. I googled this and it its really cool, the kind of thing I wish we had here.. I am puzzled however - why are they calling it the Montana Wearable Arts Festival? Montana?

  2. Hi, Louz. Montana is the name of the biggest winery in NZ; they sponsored the show. You'd love it. Even Americans in the fashion industry for over 30 years were amazed, so it's quite ... amazing!

  4. Wow and you were talking about the "Flash" on my blog.

    By the way part of that tree is part of the one from 1862. Can you image all of the changes it has seen since then?

    Thanks for visiting and posting to my blog. Very thoughtful of you and very much appreciated.

  8. I can't stop thinking on which occasion I could wear that outfit. ;-)

    Meg,
    I posted a picture of the vessel in an earlier photo you were asking me about (just scroll to the bottom of today's post).
    It's a souvenir from Southern Brazil or Argentina, don't remember which. ;-)

  10. Thanks for your visits, everybody. I'm sure you know that I, being of discernable taste, don't walk around town looking like this.

  14. Hello Meg,
    Thanks for your visit to Istanbul DP. Your comments are very encouraging for me :) You mentioned that Turkish coffee makes your heart race. Where did you tast that? In that Turkish Restaurant you mentioned? Not that I agree :), I don't drink Turkish coffee too...
    The European and Asian side, are geographically seperated by bosphorus. People wise, no diffrence, but I can tell that European side is more business life, I mean big office buildings, malls etc. Asian side more residents. I like the European side more, because it has more historical places from Ottoman Empire...
    On the Spice Bazaar, I can not kidnapp you, but I can invite you :) You are most welcomed Meg. Talk to you tomorrow...

  15. Paul, I can just imagine you in this costume, mate. Don't forget the eye-liner.

    Oya, Turkish coffee - I once worked at the Syrian Embassy in Tokyo; the ambassador had it every day, and at every staff meeting or special occasion, we got some. They thought me crazy because I waited until everything settled at the bottom before I touched it; the ambassador would sometimes kindly stir it all over for me!!!

  16. WOW! My kind of costume...maybe I should wear it while wearing my unicycle thru Cosentino's! And as I'm being carted off to the slammer for tax fraud, LOLOL! ;)

    And NIKON, I never KNEW! ;)

    HI MEG! HI BEN! Loving your snaps! =)

  18. Ame, pink hair would go well with the garb.

  19. Hi Meg! This was an education for me. When I hear "wearable art", I think of quilted and embellished garments. I just broaded my horizons.

  20. Lavender Lady, that was my sentiment exactly in 1996 when I found out about this show. And they always had/have a Bra section that's .... all about bras with wires under/over/all over for extra Extra support!
