the library skirt.





i'm loving this skirt created by textile designer extraordinaire heather ross. she made it for an event held at the nypl about designers/crafters gaining inspiration from the library stacks. and boy did she ever. the image is a drawing of a cross section of the library's underground stacks, showing in great detail how an enormous collection of books could be stored, organized, and made easily accessed by all. it even shows the pulley system that was used to carry the books from deep underground! so, so cool.

  1. Creativo Surface Design is reaching out to textile/surface designers across the globe and we came across your website. We feel that your work would be a great addition to our pool of designs.

    Right now Creativo Surface Design is looking to work with freelance textile designers to design for the different apparel markets we serve. We are working at the moment on putting together the collections for next year trade shows. Just to give you an idea, we have boys, girls, juniors, women’s and men’s collections (swimwear, street wear…etc.)

    If you have something under your portfolio, that it is not older than a year, please send us JPEGs in order for us to see and determine if they are a good fit to what our customers are looking for. We are working on Spring-Summer 2011 right now.

    Just to let you know you, we keep the designer’s names and contact info strictly confidential. So NO worries. In our company we signed a confidentiality agreement so we do not disclose your name and info.

    Let me know if you are interested in this opportunity. Also, if you know of any other designers that you want to recommend please give them a hint, send us their personal e-mail address and we will keep in touch with them.

    All the best!

    Warm Regards,
