During my short 1 and a half day trip to Paris, I went to see the Ra exhibition. It was actually the opening party so there were lots of 'important' people there, and to be honest, I couldn't feel more out of place, haha. Uhm, hello Rad Hourani passing us on the street - on his way to the exhibition too.
The exhibition itself was rather small but kind of wonderful nonetheless.
I have some pictures, but some of these pieces look way better in person. And yes, you're going to have to take my word on that.

Moccasins by Elise Gettliffe, Tipi by Irène Alvarez
This was part of an installation, but I forgot to look whose it was. Way to go, stefanie.
Both of these were from Narelle Dore's little corner, my favourite! Peach & other pastel colours, delicate fabrics, including some really nice laser-cut ones too.
Another view of the tipi, let's play a game of "Spot Rad Hourani's quiff!"
