World of Colours

23/02/2012

Just got back from London Metropolitan University for a seminar given by the Society of Dyers and Colourists about the world of colours.

One speaker definitely  caught my attention with her approach on colour psychology. I would definitely recommend you to have a look at Angela Wright work and her website http://www.colour-affects.co.uk. Her section on the 4 type of personality identified by colours is particularly interesting. Go ahead and try to work which one is your colour!

Personality 1 – Morning light

Personality 2 – Dream light

Personality 3 – Fire light

Personality 4 – Star light

The fashion week season has kick off and if you want to feed on fashion you have a wide choice of activity starting with a little exhibition that I want to see at the Little Black Gallery, SW10.

Marco Glaviano bests supermodels shots are covering the walls of the gallery showing the tops of the 90s with their superb curves and attitudes. That’s an exhibition where even your man will understand art!

The Textile Futures Research Centre put a series of seminars to celebrate a green week across the UAL universities.

I attended one of these talks at Central St-Martin on the Perspectives on future sustainable design. It all started with a positive introduction from Dr. Jonathan Chapman followed by Becky Earley presentation of TED the Textile Environment Design and their 10 topics to bring sustainability in your company. Carole Collet, course director of the Textile Future MA course at CSM followed by an outstanding presentation on the new comer in the design arena “BioDesign” which merge skills from different fields to think something even more efficient, ecstatically challenging and something that tackle sustainable issues.

Her work was particularly special for me as I am also researching on the use of microorganisms best assets to be incorporated in the textile industry. If you are interested in some great example of theoretical biodesign work I would recommend you to have a look at her website:
