Dreaming and the perception of reality

On 18th and 19th December 2009, the Viennese designer Lili Ploskova invited to cookies and glühwein (hot wine) at the showroom 'Lila Pix' in the Lindengasse. The 'Lila Pix' showroom hosts selected clothing pieces, hats, shoes, and jewellery from European designers like Bitten Stetter (DE - read the interview with the German designer about Collecting fashion in a chronological classification), Eva Kim Heu (AT), Zweti Alexieva (BG), Gina Drewes (AT), to name a few.

The invitation shows a picture of a stole with a golden print. Fashionoffice asked Lili Ploskova about the golden print and its meaning. The golden printed words are from William Shakespeare's Sonnet 43. The designer has chosen the beginning of Shakespeare's Sonnet about the perception of reality and dreaming:

When most I wink, then do mine eyes best see,
For all the day they view things unrespected;
But when I sleep, in dreams they look on thee,
And darkly bright are bright in dark directed.
