rhyme and reason

What makes something beautiful?  

I find beauty in many things... generally there is no rhyme or reason to what appeals to me.  I actually like it that way because I am open to seeing beauty in places others may overlook.

I love beautiful things. (Doesn't everyone?) I admire people who can take a concept and craft a thing of beauty, whether it's a poem, a song or something visual.

Designer Mary Huang created her project Rhyme and Reason as...
"an exploration in using light as a material to create transformative fashions. Reflecting on the change from day to night, inconspicuous white knitwear is enlivened by illumination, creating a sense of magic and mystery for the wearer."
I love the ethereal  ambiance these garments create.  It's amazing that something as ordinary as lights and lace can turn into something extraordinary. (Wouldn't this be an amazing wedding gown or veil??)

There is no doubt in my mind that I would feel beautiful in these garments.  What about you?

  5. They look exquisite. I would be so afraid of there being some kind of short in the light wiring and start burning.
