JF: What a great conversation with Galit Gaon. They must be crazed with the building opening upon them! We agreed that the show will be so much richer once we add in the Israeli designers who are part of this new machined couture movement. We discussed how this is not a show about fashion, so much as about the design process, the role of the machine in this process, and how it is evident in the arena of couture.
26/1/10GD: So, picking up the blog where we left off....That makes perfect sense, and with the work of Pini Leibovich and Arik Levy to start it shouldn't be a problem. Dai Fujiwara's manager just told me he will be attending the opening of Design Museum Holon, so it'll be great for him to see the space when envisioning his contribution to the show. I also had no idea there would be 11 pieces they could lend...how great! I have heard back from almost all of the designers with their input for how much space they think they would need to showcase their process and we definitely have enough to fill the space without a problem. Once we can meet with the exhibition designers and the team in March it should all begin to take shape nicely. I think we should also try to go see Despina Papadopolous of Studio 5050 while we are in NY for the shows. Should be helpful to see the extra components to learn what would make the most sense to include. And now that you were finally able to reach our contact at Swarovski, everything is confirmed...phew! Now to the essay...
