like a river, fashion will break free with overwhelming fluidity becoming the principle of design for the near future. the fluency of the currents and waves and rapids and rivulets is reflected in the fluidity of folds and drapes and smocks and gathers, while froth and foam are rendered with fine pleating, layering and perforation. cascading waterfalls of frills and ruffles will give majestic form to romanticism. breaking waves of fine foamy jerseys will be layered to shield from a sudden summer breeze. the wilder currents of the ocean will stand for conceptual asymmetrical shapes while the stillness of the lake will ripple softly with crêpe and undulating yarns, reflective and minimal in a profound and deep dark blue.
The Silverton Common is all the vacant land you see around Silverton starting at the cattle grid and has existed for over 115 years. It was originally much larger than its’ current 12,000 acres. It was established for the keeping of residents milking cows and goats and also for teams of bullocks and donkeys which were regularly used as transport for goods to and from the area. The Common is still home to stock today, with each owner (Silverton Residents) paying a small fee per head of cattle, horses or camels. Stock roams freely, so keep an eye on the road while driving!
