When you have a great thing, improve upon it.
And so she did.
And it's over, folks! If you've been following us on Instagram or Facebook, you may have seen some of our test pics and videos for the Big Bust Bandeau Challenge.
Your eyebrow raises. "The WHAT?" So glad you asked.
Matan Schecter: writer, style guru, fearless belly dance pioneer. And also a loyal D.Webb Designs customer. Recently, Matan went above and beyond when he surprised us with a video project titled "30 Ways to Wear the Empire from D.Webb Designs." We were thrilled! (Half of them were styles the D.Webb team hadn't even thought of...)
We immediately wondered "What made him decide to do that? What is he all about? What makes an artist like Matan tick?" So, we asked him...
It was magical. Aerialists flying above us under lights ethereal and surreal, almost psychotropic video art splashed across the walls, highlighting dancers swirling and undulating throughout the entire room.
"We got hoods here! Get'cher hoods here! Get 'em before they're gone! We got Summer hoods, Winter hoods, and hoods for days that don't know what season it is! We got long hoods, short hoods, and hoods in every color of the rainbow! We got funny hoods, dramatic hoods, and if you can't decide, we got hoods for that, too!
"Until all are free..." is the motto of dancer, activist and longtime D.Webb supporter Karla Choko. This stunning performer is an animal rights activist, owner of Sol Dance Center in Astoria, Queens and, most recently, a fulltime cast member of Broadway's "On Your Feet", the story of Gloria and Emilio Estevan! A very full plate!!
Global. What does that make you think of? ...markets? ...warming? ...climate change? ...village?
Either way, it's a huge concept. It overwhelms. At least until we give ourselves a mental headslap and remember that, oh yeah, global is also what is right in front of us -- we are all a part of "global," no matter where we are.
Hi there, D.Webbers,
You know how every once in a while you'll log into facebook and the site will have seen fit to remind you of something you posted a year, or two or three, ago? You might laugh at the memory, or cringe (you know, in a "what was I thinking when I posted that?"
That’s what tends to occur when artists get together and are open and generous with each other, yes? Well, a few weeks ago, it happened.
Let me explain...
They are elegant, they are sexy, they are stylish, and we've seen the love you have been kind enough to share about them, so we decided to make this month's Instagram giveaway all about the Empire Hood (because we love you, too!).
We've come a long way since our first year at Art of the Belly.... Year 1 - A couple boxes of merchandise stuffed into the back of Karen and Dan's car, and off to share a booth with their company, Pyaara....
