THE 6TH WORLD ECO-FIBER AND TEXTILE (W.E.F.T.) FORUM 2010
When i heard about this event from Vicky, i was excited but unfortunately I wouldn't be able to make it. Textile designers from around the world will be participating in this grand event including our very own Royal Terengganu Songket, Edric Ong, Fabriko and etc. International names include Anne Rickenbach from Switzerland, Sachiyo Shimamoto and the list goes on. There will be creative showcases of natural fibres and natural dyes all uniquely woven to the theme of "NATURE’S COLOUR CODE- in Basketry and Textiles”.
The highlight of the event will be the gala dinner and fashion show which is in honour of the late Y.A.BHG DATUK AMAR LAILA TAIB who is also patron of this forum.
All these intricate textiles will be creatively styled to present the masterpieces in the most fashionable way you can imagine. I still can't believe I can't make it back to Kuching to witness this grand event.
Here are some pictures that you might want to see from the last WEFT.
