singing the song that i was screaming

It seems I am most productive when I can't fall asleep as I made all of these very late the other night whilst talking to E about 90s Margiela and suburbia and some band called the "Jonas Brothers?" Ever heard of them? They do children's birthday parties, I hear? Very interesting, mmmm.
Anyhoozlbees (hiii jack black hi that one will & grace episode hii parenthesis don't require proper punctuation or capital letters hiii) we're about to get in a tiny trip before Spring Break ends and are leaving soon so here they are and I'll cite the sources later.This one makes me want spring, like, insanely bad.
Pretty self explanatory what this one's "theme" was, no? I love Vivienne Westwood because she also thinks that if you want to learn about fashion you have to read a BOOK and not a MAGAZINE because most magazines are too commercial and focused on popular taste. When asked about when people say that her clothes make the poor look rich and the rich look poor, she said they make the poor look rich of experience, like they have led a rich life and will go on to do even more great things; and make the rich look poor because they're not luxurious looking or snobbish. I love Vivienne Westwood.
This one was supposed to be a mix of like, futuristic and vintagey. Blue/yellow/pink, shinyness, safety pins going through your forehead. HI I'M//ALT//NO MILEY CYRUS YOU MAY NOT///MEET MY BAND//WE DON'T DO THAT KIND OF THING// (if you get that reference you get the lightning bolt of honor).
Fur is wrong wrong wrong but godddd does this make me want to feel differently=X
Blue brown rocks mountain yeah.
Bye guys!

vivienne westwood is my hero. collages are awesome :)

Maverick said...

Hey Tavi :)

Those are fabulous, I really love the second and third. I totally agree about reading a book instead of a magazine when it comes to getting into the fashion industry. I read Vogue for the articles, and Nylon to catch up on new music but I am so rarely inspired by the editorials as far as putting outfits together.

However, I do use magazine cut outs for making inspiration boards for when I want to design a line. That sounds contradictory, I guess. What I mean is that I wouldn't look at an editorial or something and go out and buy similar things wear, but I would cut out pieces from several different editorials and paste them together to be inspired. Does that make more sense?
Sorry this got so long! Lol :)

Keep up the great work, girly!

I love the british themed one. GO ENGLAND!!! And I like reading maagzines, but I love reading old issues. Fashion books are really expensive.

erin lynne said...

rawrdinopower16 said...

I'm very excited that I got that reference.

Spencer Tweedy said...

Did you see my JoBros rant on Tumblr?

They are disgusting (like Twilight).

bobb said...

Cool collages here. Enjoy your trip!

Luce said...

Thom Yorke is my HERO for saying that to Miley.

blogger said...

Waou J'ai cru que les chaussures à fleurs du premier collage c'était des doigts pointés, c'était super

Nice and Shiny said...

Yeah didn't Radiohead say no to meeting Miley Cyrus and she went nuts?! Jeez, she thought she should have received special treatment... althought I don't get the lightning bold reference ? :o

ps- late night IS the most productive time, although I'm pretty sure I can't do collages this great at any time!

<3<3<3

miss__w said...

I LOVE IT
you're a true artist!
the punk one is the best but I love them all.

Dat NEW NEW said...

I love the third one it looks futuristic yet not cold.
I was I was laughing half the time i was reading this so funny, ur good at being scarcastic


ps: do u hate the jonas brothers?are u just like all these girls in the internet dat just hate them to look cool and pretend dat they listen to better music, because in my opinion music is art.

violet jameson said...

mhm... I got the Radiohead reference! =]

Karl Lagerfeld said...

Dat NEW NEW, Tavi does listen to better music, hmm? She is not pretending. She's a real cat, if you know what I mean. But not an Andrew Lloyd Weber kind of cat.

Em said...

I have to agree I fail to understand the allure the Jonas Brothers.

"We've been to the year three thousand. Not much has changed we all live underwater, and your great great great granddaughter she's doin fineeee she's doiiiiinnnnn fiiiiinnnee (they croon that last bit)"

Firstly, a lot has changed if we're living underwater. The whole song is nonsensical and the rest of there songs are hardly better.


Maybe it's the fact that they thrash around awkwardly on stage while still holding their mike stands and constantly are batting/shaking their glossy locks out of their eyes?

Kathleen said...

cool collages! i love the Vivienne Westood one! she is one of my fashion idols.

bipolarbandmate said...

haha radiohead totally earned even more respect from me when they wouldn't meet miley cyrus. I seriously laughed soooo hard when I read a headline about that a while back XD

Shannon said...

You are boss Tavi. (:

Gwendolyn said...

Niiiicee. The first one is my fave! What program do you make these collages on?

the yellow elephant said...

oh, i love your collages (that's what they are?) and your blog. I'm happy I bumped into it!

In-tree-gue said...

these are amazing, and totally inspire me to stop playing pokemon and make collages. Oh my gosh Hussien Chalayan 99, i loved his work from the late 90s and early 2000s, it was so conceptual. I liked his shows as a first grader, and mcqueen.

Wisdom from Boof said...

I see Gareth Pugh! :D Love it love it love it. I sometimes entertain the fantasy of being a superhero and flying around in my cape, Pugh style. Yum.

(Miley totally deserved it.)

Niki said...

what a cool quote from vivienne westwood. . . I love her work so very very much and aspire to one day own a piece by her.

and i got the radiohead reference too. i must read too much celebrity news. i don't really like either of their music, and i'm not trying to take sides but it sort of makes me sad that radiohead didn't want to meet one of their younger fans. . . but maybe they were busy at the time or something. or maybe they are pretentious. yep.

these are cool, like inspiration boards :)
