Les tenues du défilé de la soirée No 1 seront accessoirisez par les bijoux This Ilk:
«The name : The word Ilk signifies “of the same class or kind”.
The creator : Tamara Bavdek completed a bachelor’s degree in Industrial Design at University of Montreal in 2007. After many, many years of long blond hair, she needed a change. After finally getting a short haircut, she started seeking large earrings to compliment and feminize her look.
The Inspiration : Having always been obsessed with Pop Art and the ‘60s era, she turned to trendsetter of her time Edith Minturn “Edie” Sedgwick for inspiration. This actress/model/heiress was, in fact, Andy Warhol’s (most renowned artist of the Pop Art movement) muse and greatly inspired his work as well. She would layer on various earrings to make them as big and long as possible which complimented her boyish hair cut and dramatic eye make-up. Because lace is to textiles what gold is to metals and diamonds to stones, it became the obvious lightweight choice for This Ilk’s jewelery line. Although Tamara has a penchant for modernist simplicity, she just couldn’t resist lace’s feminin charm.
The creation : After making a few iterations for herself, Tamara’s earrings started to attract a bit of attention. Positive encouragement pushed her to start This Ilk, which is now introduced to you through a first collection of earrings.
The collection is divided into different groups named after various cunning feminin caracters. To name a few : Poison Ivy, Athena, Ms. Peacock, Octopussy and Jeannie.
Made of stiffened lace, This Ilk jewelery is comfortable to wear despite the size.»
En plus, les produits This Ilk seront vendu à la boutique No 1, entre 20h et minuit, argent comptant ou crédit.
