A thought on curtains and fashion

I came across this wonderful picture on the funny website awkwardfamilyphotos.com

which of course made me think of the famous scene in ‘The Sound of Music’, in which Maria makes clothes for the kids out of curtains.

I’ve seen this film countless times, and this scene is not only my favorite it was also a great influence on my interest in fashion and clothes. Today the idea of reusing fabric is even more relevant as many designers and brands raise issues of environment-friendly fashion. personally I doubt commercial fashion can ever be “green.” The reason I find these two images so appealing is they present individuals who chose a uniformed appearance to distinct themselves as a group. And they do it in a charming and playful way.
