Modernism Reproduction Prints

Ever wish you could run off to Paris in the 1920s?

It is not too late.

Your time machine will arrive soon

in the form of my new reproduction collection:
Modernism from Moda.

Each piece recalls the teens and twenties, the time when new ideas in fashion, design and the arts
 exploded in the capitals of Europe.

The print Paris was inspired by the designs of Raoul Dufy and Paul Poiret

Perse coat, fabric by Dufy, design by Poiret.

Vienna, the largest print, echoes the splashy abstracts from the Viennese Workshop

Postcard by Maria Likarz, 1910
Collection of the Metropolitan Museum of Art.

Glasgow was inspired by Charles Rennie Mackintosh
 and his rose print, a Mackintosh rose.

Coblenz, looks like a hand-drawn linoleum cut of the kind that Dorothy Barron, Enid Marx and
Vanessa Bell designed.

Stockholm features the minimalist floral made modern by artists
in the Viennese Workshop 

Like Josef Hoffman's Riva.

London is another stylized rose with geometrics for
a cubist effect.

Berlin is pure Bauhaus, circles and squares.

It's a smallish line:
30 different bolts.

Sonia Delaunay on the right.

You'll have to wait for the time machine. The prints for Modernism won't be delivered till next December.
But you might want to tell your shop owner that you plan to shop for some time travel. The Moda sales reps will be bringing around the Modernism designs soon to show the shops.

  1. DECEMBER????
    wow this is such a fun line!

  2. This looks wonderful. I saw the Sonia Delaunay exhibit at the Cooper Hewitt in NYC last spring. The fabrics are amazing.

  3. If you think shop owners listen to what we say you are mistaken. Perhaps if one hundred customers said buy such and such they might. What the listen to is the empty bolts waiting to be removed from computer inventory. I am glad you soldier on....I LIKE your fabrics.

  4. Yes! Can't wait for this to appear. It will be a perfect birthday gift....:o) Love it all!

  5. Fantastic!!! Can't wait - thank you.

  6. I am so excited about these fabrics, especially the Viennese patterns. I've been hoping someone would create them.

  7. "Falling in love again,
    Never wanted to,
    What's a girl to do?
    I can't help it."

    Eager for this one to hit the stores!

  8. oh, I have to buy a bolt of the Glasgow rose....darn you!:0)
