We went to an event last Friday put together by Angela Bacskocky. It combined fashion and art and music and shoes. Lots of shoes. The theme was nesting. The women wore Angela's clothes of satin and leather and feathers, their hair suggestive of nests. There was even a giant round nest of sticks and skulls and bones and feathers in the middle of the room that the models built up while teetering around it on handmade platform shoes, like birds fluttering down from the sky in the awkward moment between flight and earth. Angela says, "The Nest deals with isolation and hibernation. It’s about the animal instinct to burrow and hide away, which is simultaneously comfortable and claustrophobic. Our nest is our home and the walls we build around ourselves, which keep us exquisitely safe but also still and imprisoned."
