Recently we took a road trip up to San Francisco to see an amazing exhibition of Belgian artist Isabelle de Borchgrave. The Legion of Honor Museum is the perfect location for such a beautiful show. For those of you that have never been the museum, it is perched on a hill overlooking the Golden Gate Bridge and the city beyond.
In Pulp Fashion Isabella de Borchgave has created over 60 costumes made entirely of painted paper. Inspired by her love of fabrics she has recreated characters from historical works of art. She is an amazing painter, pattern maker and creative genius, that manipulates paper to into a creation all her own.
My favorite room was devoted to Mariano Fortuny. I would have loved to leave the museum with one of those gowns under my arm. My words can’t begin to describe the wow factor of this show – it’s a must see.
