Fashion and History Collide - Stine Goya's “Le Ballon Imaginaire”

Wednesday, October 5, 2011

I came across Danish designer Stine Goya via Stine Nørgaard Lykkebo's Blogging Denmark piece. The article describes Goya's inspiration for her latest collection shown at Copenhagen Fashion Week as being inspired by Parisian hot air balloons -- a subject close to my heart as I worked with historic ballooning artifacts during my second stint at the Smithsonian Institution's National Air and Space Museum in 2008. With their decadent and ornate pastels, gorgeous balloon imagery seems to never go out of style!
