The Versatile Talents of Artisan Blanka Matragi
Blanka Matragi is one very talented and busy lady. As I began to prepare this post with designs from the 30th Anniversary collection, I found myself immersed in learning so much more about the extent of Blanka’s talents and creative ventures.
I find her to be an intriguing role model with a thirst for learning and a wealth of creative ideas.
Her professional career is a fascinating journey of artistic versatility. She has experimented successfully with many mediums. In addition to her propensity for designing outstanding Couture and Ready to Wear fashion, her portfolio overflows with glass & traditional sculptures, chandeliers, glass reliefs, crystal productions, porcelain, pillows, carpets & rugs, paintings and also a line of unique and high end fine jewelry.
Looking through all that she has designed and created, it’s difficult not to notice that her love for fashion permeates most everything she does. It also appears to me that nature and organic shapes and forms influence much of her work. We see it in the designs of her gowns, again in the Orchid or Butterfly Chandeliers and the Octopus Jewelry Collection inspired from the sea. Even the porcelain service set that she produced with Thun is modeled after a Butterfly.
Now, for the Pièce de Résistance of this post, Haute Couture that oozes sensuality, femininity & creativity, demonstrates a keen knowledge of traditional art concepts and a mastery of Couture.
