    Maurizio Anzarri embroidery via Yellowtrace

    While we’re not ones to flounce around in lacy creations ourselves, the “shockingly beautiful” images from Sarah Burton's Alexander McQueen show in Paris last week have definitely caught our attention. For a dose of edgy, contemporary lace creations closer to home it’s well worth checking out the Powerhouse Museum’s current Love Lace exhibition. On our visit we particularly loved the jewellery by Canandian artist, Anna Lindsay MacDonald, Waltraud Janzen’s Tree and Shona Wilson’s Heirloom, made from a collection of natural, found materials. If the meticulous patience of this kind of modern-take on a traditional craft is up your street, take a look at the wonderful world of subversive embroidery, curated by the ever-brilliant Yellowtrace blog.

    Flash mobs go fashion

    What better way to kick off the week than with a fash-tastic flash mob under the shadow of the Eiffel Tower care of legendary queen of the wrap dress and Studio 54 icon, Diane von Furstenberg. Underlining the continuing trend for putting the fun back into fashion DVF herself headed up a dance routine of ladies in her fab print dresses getting down to the sounds of Chaka Khan‘s “I’m Every Woman”. Go girl.
