Shirley Buchan Amazing Knits!


Wabi Sabi is the Japanese art of impermanence, or in English, it states that nothing lasts, nothing is perfect, and nothing is finished. This caught my attention in a History of Costume lecture, and whilst furthering my research into it I came across some beautiful, wabi sabi inspired creations by Scottish textile Designer Shirley Buchan. Hard as it is to believe, these dresses fall under the category of knitwear! Such amazing detail and craftmanship have gone into these pieces.
What can I say, I'm in awe of her work!



I haven't been able to find an official website for Shirley, but you can check out her profile on arts thread here!
