Framo Polier SPRING/SUMMER 2012
As I walk through the crowded medina of Casablanca,
I search for the top of the mans head who I am following,
he takes me looking for the special powders the ones
you rarely see in the urban cascade of jars, spices, nuts,
and made in china clothes. In the allies amongst antiques,
and black market DVDs, tiny jars wait for a pair of hands
to open them and them and pour out rocks of color.
These colors are the form, the basis for the project.
They hold the colors of ancient walls and faraway hidden
mountain villages in the Rif mountains of West Africa.
The village is full of igloos, not the frozen kind though. These are made
with earth and painted with shades of indigo, Indian pink, peach, pistache;
all the colors of a collection. The donkeys and sheep are all around, to car-
ry, walk and work. The powders of color sit in bags against the wall. They
are heaps of colored dust. The wind flutters them and their colors shift,
much like the winds on the nearby Sahara.
The colors cool and warm you at the same time. The colors transfer the
message. The color is the color always was. The colors are ours to share
with you. The colors make us smile; they let us recognize the elements;
they let us dream of realities different from our own.
Spring/Summer 2012 'Travel Without Moving' was inspired by merging hand
dying traditions and digital technology in airy silhouettes of silk and gauze.
Travel without moving. The vibrant unrealistic quality of Moroccan Tad-
lak hues creates an unexpected foreground in American fashion. These
hidden colors are a silent communication full of emotion; at once you are
transported into the here and now, this is the definition of fashion.
