Wear­able art pieces at Lucy’s Dream

Viet Nam News - - Ex­pat Cor­ner -

An ex­hi­bi­tion show­cas­ing clothes printed with unique hand-drawn and dig­i­tally ma­nip­u­lated de­signs by Viet­namese artists has been open at Lucy’s Dream, 31 Haøng Gi­aày Street.

The idea be­hind Lucy’s Dream is turn­ing art cre­ated by Viet­namese young artists into wear­able pieces of cloth­ing. It is the sec­ond oc­ca­sion since the first ex­hi­bi­tion in June when lo­cal artists were in­vited to join, fo­cus­ing on two sub­jects of Greek

Mythol­ogy and Ty­pog­ra­phy. The re­sults are com­fort­able and eye-catch­ing, ready-to-wear silk clothes, printed with inim­itable de­signs that have been hand-drawn and dig­i­tally ma­nip­u­lated by artist part­ners.

The de­sign and man­u­fac­tur­ing pro­cesses at Lucy’s Dream usu­ally take be­tween three and five weeks, from the first sketches by artists to dig­i­tal de­signs, fol­lowed by fab­ric sourc­ing and pre-treat­ment. There­after, the fab­ric is sent for print­ing, post-print­ing treat­ment, cut­ting, and sewing.

The ex­hi­bi­tion will last un­til Au­gust 14.
