The first event was awesome. The next will be epic! Come join us this Friday, June 30th at Kemet Kitchen for “Art Is” Poetry. Be inspired by young poet Taelor Johnson, Cici and The Burban, all amazing spoken word artists. Here’s a little taste of what’s in store from our President, Audrie Mills. “Poetry is […]
Art is an important part of our lives, from the clothes we wear to the cars we drive. First comes the concept then the creation and while every form of art can be a source of inspiration, Painters are our focus at this time.
Abstract Art is my favorite style of art because it is subject to ones interpretation. Pablo Picasso is one of my favorite artist and sources of inspiration. Who is yours? Who inspires you? Share with me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you don’t think fashion is a form of artist express, stop a moment and consider this. Art is the expression or application of human creative skill and imagination, typically in a visual form such as painting or sculpture, producing works to be appreciated primarily for their beauty or emotional power.
Visual Art– these creative pieces are visually pleasing and can appeal to all art lovers. These beautifully made garments represent three different art forms; painting, sculpture and digital art.
Paintings – The fabric designs of these garments are Modern (right), Art Deco (middle) and Cubism (left). Textile artists use fabric as their canvas, creating some of the most beautiful art that if you wanted you could frame it.
Digital Art – These unique pieces are made of 3D printed material. Designers are now able to print material with a 3D printer that can be used to make clothing.
Sculpture – These amazing pieces are the perfect example of sculpture art in fashion. The form and details of these pieces are awesome.

Others opinions of me are never more important than my opinion of myself. That’s not conceit but Self-Confidence. Learning to love yourself is the most important thing you can do for yourself. How can someone else love what you don’t love? My life is not up for negotiation, the only approval I need to live my life is mine because what I do is between me and God.
I only have one life to love and since we all know that tomorrow is not promised; I want to live while I can, laugh while I can, love while I can, and be happy. I don’t want more stuff, I want more experiences and memories. I want to travel to new places, meet new people, and try new things.
This year choose you. . . Make a plan or what I like to call a Life List. A list of things you would like to try, places you would like to go and a plan to make it happen. God has gifted you the privilege of Life … why not enjoy it?
Make a Life List and let me know that you are ready to stop existing and start living by tweeting me @audriemills_ and using #lifelist.
I AM ME
Too often we allow the trials of life to interfere with our destiny. We worry about people, things and circumstances we can’t control. We get caught up in the “what ifs” (What if they don’t like me, what if I fail). These are all excuses not to try. There is no success without failure and you can’t succeed if you don’t try.
One of my favorite fashion designers is Roberto Cavalli. Cavalli was born during World War II, on November 15, 1940, in a suburb of Florence. His father was murdered by Hitler’s army so his mother had to sell coal to keep the family afloat. In 1957 Cavalli attended art school, inspired by a fellow student he began to print designs on T-shirts and sweaters, thus began what would become the Cavalli pattern: initial failure followed by eventual success. His interest in textile printing led to him inventing a process of printing that allowed his designs to cover an entire garment, uninterrupted by seams or stitching.
“Never Be Afraid To Try Something Different” Roberto Cavalli
Roberto Cavalli was the first person to print on leather. He created denim and leather patchwork, gold lamé, Lycra in denim for a better fit and sandblasting jeans to print on them. If Roberto Cavalli had let his family history and past failures discourage him, he would not be one of the top Fashion Designers in the world today.
