Silvia Beccaria is an artist and textile designer based in Turin, Italy, with now almost twenty years of experience. She designs and creates contemporary jewelry on manual looms, adding unusual inserts that are completely foreign to textile traditions to traditional fibers, in a new interpretation of the ruffs that were in fashion in the 1500s and 1600s.551819_431685140217206_777190123_n

Her ruffs, created thread after thread, extend the definition of “fiber” to embrace industrial materials, primary (not recycled) products that would seem anonymous, negligible, and hard to consider in their aesthetic value – like PVC, rubber, plastic, latex, polyurethane and so on. Their common trait it the fact that they can all be woven somehow, and that their use is the result of research and innovative experiments.

For her contemporary jewelry, Silvia selects materials for their consistency, elasticity, transparency and color, trapping them in the warp and yet leaving them free to move, creating the three-dimensional effect that was essential to antique ruffs and to their charm.

New video about outstanding neckline designs!

I want to show you something you’ve never seen before!
After reaching 12731 views on my video about the best fashion collars, which is growing up every day, I decided to devote me next video just to MOSCHINO that is number one in my neckline design collection!

The MOSCHINO‘s style is recognisable through its humorous and infantile elements attached to details. During his lifetime, Franco Moschino said: ‘Leave me on my white cloud’, which can give you an idea of his flight of fancy. Moschino was known with witty designs. Though many other labels do not sell in their boutiques the same outfits as displayed in catwalk shows, MOSCHINO does it!

Have a look at smart outfits featuring necklines embellished with teddy bears, beaded teddy bears, pins, thimbles, measure tapes, glass beads, gemstones, bows and even gloves!
