Carla Fernandez Exhibit
I met Carla Fernández last November in her studio here in Mexico City, fell in love with one of her black fringed wool ponchos and scooped one up to wear during the chilly months ahead in Mexico City. I adore the fringe on it!
Carla is not only incredibly sweet but she has a passion for working with artisans as well. Carla and I both work with some of the same artisan groups here in Mexico and we actually met through the coordinator for the artisans we work with. Thus, I was SO happy to see this little article in the New York Times Style Magazine about an exhibit of her work that will be at The Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum in Boston (in my home state none-the-less!). Not only will she be showing her work through photos, drawings, garments, videos, and performances she will be offering workshops to visitors on looming, embroidery, and tassle making. How awesome is that? The show will be running from April 17th to September 1st...go check it out if you are in the Boston area!
