Damselfrau is Maghild Kennedy, an artist from Norway. To us, at Mimi Berlin, she is most known for the masks she creates. The masks are mostly created with found materials and sewn by Damselfrau’s hands. If you need to label this work you could say it’s textile art. Her work was on exhibit at Moba 13 in Arnheim and at various venues in Londen, where Damselfrau works and lives. In her exhibitions the masks are often shown by itself, they become faces that way.
The Couture (for Spring 2015) show of Maison Margiela was designed by John Galliano. It truly was a wonderful show! See that HERE for yourself.
The garments were so wonderfully detailed, there was too much to see to describe. So we will stick with the faces he created (because we posted last week on fashion faces) (images via style.com)
