The other day I went to my friend Yuko Moriki’s shop Pure; she had a trunk show for an artist named, Hisae Nagai, who does custom knitted apparel. Ms. Nagai studied in London at the Chelsea College of Art & Design and also in India. Her company name is “Veero”, which is a name of a place in India. Check out her blog: http://loveveero.blogspot.com.
Once again, I have been inspired; mainly by Ms. Nagai’s use of shapes and colors from nature to create her patterns with personalities. Each of her knitted pieces clearly exude these patterns with personalities. It was almost like attending a matchmaking event, rather than a trunk show! Each customer, one by one, found exactly the perfect match by Veero (Ms. Nagai) “the matchmaker”. [slideshow]
