Creativity In Blum

-------

One of the perks of my job is participating in Thesis Week at Parsons. It’s amazing not only to see the students’ creativity—but also their own getups. Yesterday, a panel of industry “judges” including Carolina Herrera, Vogue‘s Meredith Melling Burke, and John Bartlett gathered to see about a dozen collections (out of about 170). We saw accomplished hand-painted and draped dresses, fluoro swimwear, and a goat-fur coat, but everyone left talking about Julia Blum’s lingerie line called Ardor. The designer (who sported an Amy Winehouse-style beehive pinned with flowers) was inspired by Nabokov’s Lolita. Her workmanship was fine, and the conceptions daring—we chose one of the tamer looks for Style File.

    I love this look it is so feminine and chic. It reminds me of the undergarments in the 1940s

    Now I’m curious. I’d love to see more. Is Julia Blum as talented as they say?

    Very 1940s undergarments. It reminds me of Rita Hayworth or Bette Davis. Cute and sheek too.
