Enticer - FUSION 2012 by LuxIndustries Enticer - FUSION 2012 by LuxIndustries
From Matt LeBlanc Art: An important element of this year's FUSION show was the evolution of the Matt LeBlanc Art brand. I wanted to showcase that art doesn't just come on a canvas. I also wanted to add a fashion component to the evening. I wasn't really sure how to go about this, but I knew I wanted to work with a local designer; I knew it had to be Rebecca McKenzie from Lux Industries. I had seen her work in the past and have also heard about how dedicated she is to her craft. This is exactly what I am looking for in a partner. We sat down to brainstorm and came up with the concept of creating four custom Matt LeBlanc Art gowns. I literally had goosebumps the entire meeting because I was so excited about the idea.

REBECCA'S VISION: The first time I met with Matt, we talked about how his works affect its audiences. Each painting emits an emotion or journey as individualistic as the person interpreting it. Fine art is about personal expression, much different from the business of fashion. When the two collide, we get one-off collaborative works of art that literally demand your attention and engage all of your senses. I wanted people to see these works and be enchanted. When it came time to design the garments, I let each piece of painted satin affect me as an artist. Each color wanted its own identity, and I had every intention of letting that happen. These dresses were not easy to create; the fabric was very difficult to work with. Princess seams and grain lines were not my friend during this process – but I would do it again in a heartbeat. I love a challenge. I love to create. I am extremely proud of what Matt and I have made together and truly hope you enjoy these pieces. More at : www.mattleblancart.com/en/blog…
