My dear friends,

I'd like to ask your advice... The point is that I noticed a rather long time ago that my knits cause a certain "exhibition interest", so to say...
From many knitters (Americans and Europeans) I receive the such questions: "Dear Alexander, Your designs are great!!! Where do you your shows? Are you some times in middle Europe or somewhere, I would like to meet you and see your stuff in real?"...

Therefore I'd liked to ask: does anyone know a textile/fashion/crafts museum (gallery, exhibition) that would be interested in exhibiting the best samples of my knitwear?

Nowadays I have about 30 dresses/sweaters/coats that may demonstrate the "history" of my "creative way" from 1994th to 2017th...


Friends, I'm inclined to think that l MUST show that collection to people... Isn't it? :)

Best wishes,

Your A.

Hi Alexander

I have no connection with any of these but you might try asking someone in each website where you could exhibit.

I do agree that you need to get them out to a wider audience.

Regards
Kate


PS What is the significance of your avatar? I ask because my husband has huge interest in Military History especially the 2nd World War.

Dear Darknit,

Thank you very much! I'll write to all of them...

On the avatar is me! It's me, in 1982, during the oath, after which I received the shoulder straps of Lieutenant of armored forces of country that was named 'USSR'... :)

Nowadays (the upper photo) I look rather different. :)

Friends, the GUCCI's inclination to unauthorized "borrowing" of other designers' ideas is my "evil fate"!
I hope you remember how last summer I corresponded with Mr. Alessio Vannetti, the GUCCI's WW Communications Director. It was concerning two design ideas "borrowed" from me. Correspondence did not lead to anything. Mr. Vannetti argued to me that Gucci did not steal my ideas, reinforcing his assertion with for instance such arguments: "The creative concept of designing birds and winged animals in a symmetrical way origins from the Indian Madhubani paintings, created in the province of Mithila, India". ( That was about this knit top:

Great argument... I.e., in other words, GUCCI steals ideas not from concrete modern designers but from nameless ancient artists! :)

I was hoping that in 2018, after this correspondence, Gucci at least will cease to "borrow" my old ideas. It turned out that in vain... In vain I was hoping for:

Well Alexander, all I can say is I much prefer your designs to Gucci's - they are far crisper and more dramatic. Gucci's are weaker and more washed out.

I can see a correlation between your design and Gucci's, but it is not a close one.

Alexander - I love your top and i think that the Lace you have put on the bottom and on the end of the sleeves is a beautiful touch :thumbup:

Thank you, friends ...
Those laces were a stylization of snowflakes... They were made by my wife, Alexandra. The more she experiments with snowflakes, the less they look like snowflakes, but like the sea stars. :)
