Item description for Roberta Furlanetto: Weave by Roberta Furlanetto, Renata Molho & Paola Nicolin...

Fabric is to Roberta Furlanetto what oil and canvas are to painters. In fact, she might well take a canvas, fray it, and weave it into other textiles with threads and precious stones. Furlanetto constructs by hand creations that can't quite be called fashion, and yet fashion houses from Christian Lacroix to Dior to Ungaro have incorporated her works into their clothes. Combining embroidery, gold, wool, lace, solvents, and sometimes ceramic glazes, her patterns burst with color. Some are meant to be hung on walls, some on models. This vivid book shows Furlanetto's inventions both on their own and as part of the clothing collections of various designers, particularly Lacroix. As Paola Nicolin writes in the text, "The basic grammar of her work speaks the language of art: violated materials, collage, tears and inlay, chromatic contrasts, brushstrokes, and spatters."

Reviews - What do customers think about Roberta Furlanetto: Weave?

fantastic starting point for budding textile artists  Mar 27, 2007
If you want a kick start to think outside the box when it comes to creating fabric out of nothing (or just the scraps that come your way) then this is the book for you. It is especially useful as fabric shops today are slowly disappearing, yet there is still a need to source great fabrics for our creations which we want to look individually hand created,but not "home" sewn. Not only do we see great fashion with individual catwalk photos, but opposite them in glorious detail (that you could almost touch) is a close up full page photo of a sample of the fabric that was created.No longer can we complain that the fashion houses have access to one of a kind fabrics and laces. Make your own!
