Here is where I would like to post all things about Creative Clothing Collection (aka C3) my clothing label.
Bright Ideas Collection
My Spring/Summer collection is inspired by the art of the famous artist, Henri Matisse (1869-1954). Matisse was one of the first modern artists and was the originator of the art movement called the Fauves.
Madame Matisse: "The Green Line"
Fauves meant "wild beast. " Up to Matisse's time art was almost photographic in nature. The paintings were so precise that they nearly looked like the original picture, and so people didn't have to interpret the art for themselves. Matisse's now famous painting, Mademe Matisse: "The Green Line," with it's bold and bright colors earned him, and his followers, the name of "wild beasts" - Fauves. After I took an art history class at Lawrence Tech in Southfield, I began to research more about Matisse. I grew an immense respect for him, not only as an artist but also as a man. During Matisse's later years he was confined to a bed and did paper cut outs to continue his art. Thus leading to pieces like the "Blue nude" and "A Thousand & One Nights."
"Blue nude" "A Thousand & One Nights"
These pieces of art are the inspiration to the "Bright Ideas" collection. The Spring and Summer of 2012 is going to be all about the pop of color. This collection will give color to all your casual apparel needs.
