As you walk into the exhibition you are greeted by a large vase of mulberry cuttings, upon closer inspection you see that the stems are covered in small white silkworms feeding on the green leaves. As the show continues, the worms continue to devour the leaves leaving behind nothing but brown stems and the cocoons of the themselves entwined in silk.
love is a place and spring was in the air.
CLICK THROUGH to see more photos, sketches and what I wore from my luscious day at Xu Bing's 'It Begins with Metamorphosis' at Asia Society.
I paired the dress with Mark & Spencer black tights, M&S makes the best tights, don't fuck with any other brands. Ripped tights are annoying and fill up landfills since they're nylon and last forrreeevvver. So spend the extra few bucks on good ones that'll last. Also wearing: Cotton On booties, Esprit recycled denim tote and an evil eye necklace given to me by a friend.
Huge thanks to Rach Read for passing along the invite and to Asia Society for having me.
