The hit UK documentary series My Big Fat Gypsy Wedding has come to this side of the Atlantic, currently showing on TLC. The series offers a rare glimpse into the traditionally secretive Irish traveller community. Despite the show title, Irish travelers are not related to the Romani people. Misnomer or not, I found the series a compelling watch. How can it not with colorful dresses like these:Continue Reading »
Think Project Runway is hard? Try hacking your clothes with technology in 6 hours!
On February 1st, watch live as I challenge 14 fashion students from the Fort Hayes Metropolitan Education Center to hack their clothes with technology at eTech Ohio. With only 6 hours and no prior knowledge of technology, Juniors and Seniors will instruct and learn how to infuse technology such as conductive thread, fabric, fiber optics, wires, and sewable LEDs into garments.
The designs will be showcased on the catwalk prior to the keynote event on the 2nd. Don't Miss it!
If you want to keep up on the play by play action, be sure to follow the conference on Twitter @ohioetcContinue Reading »

Last Saturday, we all gathered around and listened intently to Tom Wujec, Autodesk Fellow and creative engieer, about how to visualize our ideas and synthesize innovation. It was amazing!

After a full day of lectures and yoga I attended a talk by Scott Summit from http://www.summitid.com. I was wowed by the beautiful 3D printed prosthetics for amputees. The limbs are created by scanning a person's un-injured body part and then that data is used to print a highly personalized prosthetic limb. Talk about on-demand body parts!Continue Reading »
Article first published as Grow House Grow Wallpapers on Technorati.
There is nothing like uncovering history in your walls. Or in the case of Katie Deedy, covering your walls with history. Whatever the case, you'll love Katie Deedy's new Naturalist wall paper collection. Deedy, of Grow House Grow, presented her inspiring collection wallpapers at BKLYN Designs 2010 last week.
Like all of her work, this collection is narrative-based with stories that accompany each design. In this year's Naturalist collection, she is inspired by historical female scientists.
Some of the scientists she's chosen to explore are Mary Treat (1830-1923), a lover of carnivorous botanicals, Mary Ward (1827-1869) a women with a passion for microscopy in insects, and Jeanne Villepreux-Power (1794-1871) who invented the world's first aquarium.Continue Reading »
Harmony Art's "let it grow" print, made of certified organic cotton, looks fun and is guilt-free!
Earth Day was last month. Did you completely space out and forget? That’s okay. It’s not too late to make “Reduce, Reuse, Recycle” your daily mantra.
Let’s start with your wearable tech projects by bringing some green to your fabric choices. You can go three ways: sustainable textiles, repurposed clothes, and up-cycled materials. We’ll address sustainable textiles in this post.
These days sustainable textiles are all the rage, from luxury fashions to low-end basics. Linda Loudermilk creates high-end clothes from “sasawashi, bamboo, sea cell, soya and other exotic self-sustaining plants.” H&M’s Garden Collection, made from organic and recycled textiles, launched this spring. Even Walmart boarded the sustainable train by making their “Faded Glory private label line more sustainable.” Music and Sons makes t-shirts from bamboo and organic cotton. They step up the coolness factor by wiring up the t-shirt with an ipod and earphone jacks making it possible to rock out, look fabulous, and be eco-friendly all at the same time.Continue Reading »
