DO NOT DRY CLEAN (article first published : 2007-05-6)

Consumers are told to always “read the label” but when three Durban based creatives get together, labels become obsolete. Bean Bag Bohemia is hosting an exhibition titled Do Not Dry Clean in its Cafe Gallery.

Free of machine washed ideas, Do Not Dry Clean is a collaboration between R&G, AHL & AP that bleaches the boundaries between art and fashion. Working directly onto vintage jackets, in a variety of mediums, they have created a collection of limited edition wearables.

R&G: Rosebud&Grumpers (featuring Crystal Campbell) functions as a creative outlet for any mad project that anyone can possibly think of, blending unconventional, traditional and modern equipment and methods to produce a unique perspective in public art, open communities and knowledge sharing.

AHL: Anabella Hilda Loubser’s creative mind was shaped by a childhood on a farm in the Kalahari where she had lots of time and space to imagine, play and create. This, and a degree in textile design, led her into working as a graphic and textile artist. She's looking forward to a bright future.

AP: Alistair Palmer is a young Capetonian who has made himself at home in the Zulu Kingdom of KZN for the past two years. He does some design at the Modern Museum of Communication and likes to “draw and paint on stuff, surf and ride his bicycle”.

Most importantly, the collective has absolutely no rules and no design boundaries, and maintains a Healthy Sense of Humour at all times. More information at www.rosebudandgrumpers.co.za
