Look for yourself or finish up (okay, maybe start) your Christmas shopping. Come for an hour, have a coffee and soak up the sales!
Jewelery, prizes, sale prices, coupons and chocolate? Sounds like a lady's dream, doesn't it?
Let's face it, we ladies have cravings. At many different times of the day, for no one particular thing. Let me speak for all of us when I say that the cravings for jewelery, shopping and chocolate happen even when we sleep. Clients have been craving more chances to see Jolie Mack Designs jewelery in person and I have paired the opportunity with chocolate for a crave-crushing combo.

Cocoa Nymph's @ 10th and Alma
On Nov 18th- 21st, SFU students put on the exhibit Surveilling Public Space: Perspectives on Spectacle. I collaborated with Kwantlen fashion student Serena Neumerschitsky on our piece called: "I thought it was our little secret" and explored the prevalence of surveillance cameras in our society, how that technology is used and how it makes individuals feel.

I'm super excited to team up with 2nd year fashion student, Serena Neumerschitsky for our Surveillance art installation called: "I thought it was our little secret"
Coming from the fashion industry, clothing and the effects of fashion on how others view us is always on our mind. We wear certain things to portray to others what we want them to see. We also choose carefully when we want to hide certain things about ourselves, whether it is physical or emotional.
With the introduction of surveillance into our society, we are denied the freedom to choose what people see. We can try desperately to hide our secrets; but at what point do we stop being true to ourselves out of fear for our privacy. Will this cause us to suppress our true feelings which may ultimately lead to irrational, rebellious, behavior?
We started by looking at the prevalence of surveillance cameras in our society and looking at how that technology is used and how it makes individuals feel. So even though what the camera records is "surface", the implication is that privacy is still compromised.
To visually express this concept, we will construct a business suit out of sheer material and dress a headless male mannequin. A headless female mannequin will be dressed in a sheer blouse and shirt. Under the man’s clothing is women’s underwear. Under the woman’s clothing is what appears to be fetish wear.
