Collaboration Time with Poetry and Art Gowns

OH yes! It has been quite the week, and one of the amazing projects I’ve been working on is… a collaboration with costume designer Resa McConaghy.

When she asked me to contribute poems to go with four of her art gowns, I was truly moved by the request. After all, Resa has so much to celebrate with the post as it is in celebration of her nomination for Best Costume Designer by the Canadian Screen Awards! For anyone not familiar with these awards, they are like the Oscars but for Canada! So, it’s a big deal! The nomination is for her costume design work in the TV mini series The Best Laid Plans.

Congratulations again, Resa!

For our collaborative post, I have created a poem for each of Resa’s art gowns. It was exciting for me to work from the photos Resa provided me for each of the gowns. Her fashions were my inspiration. I took my time to truly be able to pay tribute to the designs, fabrics and colours of the art gowns.

Here is the link to the collaborative post, which is published on Resa’s Art Gowns blog. I hope you enjoy the results of our project! Be sure to follow her blog while you’re over there tooย as it is fashion savvy. Resa you have my vote in the category of Best Costume Designer!

~Wishing you all a creative week ahead!

    Dear Christy,
    You are so much fun to collaborate with! Thank you tons for sharing your wonderful talent with me.
    The Art Gowns are crazy about your poems, and won’t stop squabbling over whose poem is the best. I’ve had to tell them all just to settle down and enjoy the moment!
    Hope you have a great week ahead, too!

    Well done! And what a fun creative idea. Though i’m sure i’ll never again wear one, i love gowns. I started a Pinterest board and called it Glorious Gowns. It was just a whim, but it quickly grew into a huge board. LOL. Congratulations to you both. Huge hugs!
