REBOOT week five was spent in a dreamy sort of unhurried way. It was my great honor to be in the House of Khalje for six days of Couture School with a fantastic collection of students, twelve in all, dedicated to learning the time honored traditions of couture. This house in Baltimore was peppered with accents literally from all over the world. And while we came from different places, we all had one thing in common: fabric dreams.
We all dreamt of fashioning fabric for the body and soul. Throughout the week, we shared our dreams and stories of life events - past, present, and future. Directing our fabric fantasies, Susan Khalje seemed to go about the art of passing on couture techniques with seemingly effortless grace. I may have only come away with a taste of this world of couture, but I can now begin to imagine what it might be like to apprentice under a master couturier in a Parisian fashion house.
This week was memorable and remarkable. This week was pure. Couture!
