Couture et Tricot Exhibit – Exposição Couture et Tricot

Português
English (uncheck the other box and check this one)

Há algum tempo fui convidada pelo Gabinete de Comunicação e Imagem da PT Inovação (local onde trabalho) para elaborar uma pequena mostra acerca do meu passatempo favorito. Hoje a exposição abriu e aqui têm algumas imagens em primeira mão, momentos antes da inauguração. Esta exposição reúne algumas das minhas peças favoritas, todas confeccionadas com dedicação e empenho, e também recordações de Amigas e Amigos que fiz durante o tempo de vida deste blogue! Obrigada a todos pelo vosso apoio, vocês são fantásticos! Disfrutem!

















Some time ago I was invited by my Company’s Public Relations Office to put together a small exhibit about my favorite hobby; today the exhibit went open and here are a few first hand photos just before the grand opening. This exhibit includes some of my favorite pieces, all handcrafted with love, and also souvenirs of some friends that I had the great honor of meeting through blogging. Thank you all for your kind support, you guys are the absolute best! Enjoy!

Anne-Marie said...

Bravo Tany ! This exhibition is so well deserved. This is wonderful. Your work is so amazing. I am always wonderful how you can make that much with a full time job... well that much and with such a degree of complexity and quality of fabrication. Wonderful tribute to your other job ;-)

Rachel said...

Congratulations!! That is quite an honor. They are going to want you to sew for them, now. You are such an excellent seamstress.

Vicki W said...

How wonderful to be recognized for your talents outside of the office!

What a beautiful and impressive exhibit! Congratulations!

Carolyn (cmarie12) said...

Tany - what an honor! I am so thrilled for you and it was wonderful to see some of your awesome garments on display. Congratulations!

AllisonC said...

How wonderful, I would pay to visit that exhibition! You must have had fun (and some difficulty!) deciding which pieces to include.

Celina said...

Tany, isso é fantástico!!!! Meu deus, estou boquiaberta pela iniciativa, é super original uma empresa pegar no trabalho "pós-trabalho" de um colaborador e dar-lhe tal honra. Mas neste caso não sei quem é que tem a honra maior, se tu se a empresa por ter uma colaboradora com tal qualidade! ;) O teu trabalho fala por si e merece sem dúvida esse destaque, e as peças ficaram lindas assim expostas (bela selecção, aliás). Mas conta mais, como é que surgiu essa iniciativa? Se ainda não eras, vais passar a ser conhecida como a costureira mais trendy da empresa!
Mais uma vez, muitos parabéns!
Depois conta como foi o feedback dos visitantes :)

Jilly Be said...

What a beautiful display! Congratulations, and thank you for the 'tour' :)

DeniseAngela said...

Congratulations Tany........what beautiful pieces of fashion art! These photos were truly a joy to look at.....I so wish I could see your collection in person.

Cíntia said...

Nossa Tany, que bacaníssimo essa iniciativa, algo para ser provado aos outros que hobbes também podem ser muito profissionais e não é por que não é uma fonte de renda que não se pode ser feito com tanta dedicação e paixão.
Você merece!
Parabens

Gosh, Tany, what company are you working for? I would love to work there, too! :-)
What a great opportunity, and how lovely to see some of your many well-crafted pieces again. Sewing over all those years, I think this is not a hobby as such anymore for you, but a passion you can well lived. I hope many, many garments will follow..... and I am looking forward to this! :-)

Mary Beth said...

Tany, I am so proud to know you! (That's "country-speak" for You Are Magnificent)

You garments look just gorgeous in the exhibit. How could they be better than when you posted about them? But they are. Congratulations!!!

That is so amazing. It reminds me of an exhibition in a museum of a famous designer's clothing. How wonderful of your employers to support you. Well done.

Tany, I think you have a great workplace for giving you the opportunity to present your personal hobby this way! And thank you for letting us have a look at your beautiful projects, I love the way they are displayed. I recognized some of your sewing projects, but is there any post about that brown knitted bag? It caught my eye :)

Tany said...

Hi Olga and thanks! Here's a link to the posts on the brown crochet bag (aka Dublin bag): http://tanysewsandknits.blogspot.com/search/label/Dublin%20bag

PARABÉNS TANY!!!
Se há alguém que mereça és tu!!!
Se a PT trouxer essa exposição a Lisboa, avisa! Eu serei a primeira e ir lá! Sabes, eu estou com uma pontinha de inveja das tuas colegas de trabalho: elas vivem numa expectativa constante!! Assim, não há rotina!!E a expectativa de ver alguém chegar de manhã para ver qual é a surpresa do dia? Deve ser fantástico! Mil Beijinhos e Felicidades!!! E Parabéns à PT pela iniciativa!! Helena Alves (Lisboa)

Tany said...

Obrigada Helena Alves e a todas que passaram aqui para me deixar uma palavra de incentivo!!

Thank you all for your kind words!

Gracias a todos!

Merci à tous!

Giovana said...

Olá Tany, andei vendo as fotos de sua exposição e fiquei emocionada pq desde venho acompanhando as confecção de tuas roupas e aprendendo muito com teu trabalho. Eu gostei muito da foto em que estão o vestido preto e a máquina de costura. Pensei em publica-la em meu mural no facebook, mas para isso gostaria de tua permissão para fazê-lo. Um grande abraço.

Tany said...

Olá Giovana, e obrigada. Quanto à foto, pode usá-a, só peço que mencione a origem da foto. Ah, e não é um vestido de verdade... No manequim coloquei um tecido muito bonito de lantejoulas e prendi com alfinetes para dar um ar de Ateliê,... Muita gente pensou que fosse um vestido de verdade :)

Nancy K said...

I remember most of these from reviews but seeing them all together it is an impressive body of work. Congratulations.

Giovana said...

Olá Tany, eu agradeço pela permissão. Certamente direi a origem, vc tem realizado um belo trabalho e vale a pena ser divulgado. Quanto ao vestido parece mesmo de verdade, ficou muito bonito no manequim. Um grande abraço e tudo de bom.

Thank you a million my dear friend Zhanna! I will include the English text in this comment (I don't know why this older blog doesn't have the reply feature): "Some time ago I was invited by my Company’s Public Relations Office to put together a small exhibit about my favorite hobby; today the exhibit went open and here are a few first hand photos just before the grand opening. This exhibit includes some of my favorite pieces, all handcrafted with love, and also souvenirs of some friends that I had the great honor of meeting through blogging.

I was so happy to be able to showcase my creations like this, I'm sure you can imagine how I felt! It was very special and a great honor to me!
Many hugs and kisses my darling, love you!!!
