Mom Maria is one of the PowderBoxGirls made by Mimi Berlin. Like all the other women in this series he has her own story; This is Maria, she is a secluded person and does her job at night in an anonymous way; she covers her face with latex. Maria was a stay-at-home mom by day, but her son just died. She is still in mourning so she visits his grave most of the time, Actually, she visits every day and brings flowers.

The first series of Mimi Berlin’s VintageDeluxe Fashion Accessories Artworks are ready! In order to keep the past of fashion alive, preserve and comment on it, we decided to take one magazine from our mimimagazines collection apart and turn it into artworks; by combining them with costume jewelry from our collection (which is also vintagedeluxe). The collages, 45 in total, are all made with laminated pages from one magazine; Linea Italia Magazine, augm1980, and carefully selected brooches, fixed together in a storytelling way.
‘Hummingbird’ from Mimi Berlin’s VintageDeluxe Fashion Accessories Artworks #1
‘Silver Face’ from Mimi Berlin’s VintageDeluxe Fashion Accessories Artworks #1
‘Bad’ from Mimi Berlin’s VintageDeluxe Fashion Accessories Artworks #1
The ingredients for these collages are both vintagedeluxe. The brooches are mostly costume jewelry which are fixed onto the laminated fashion magazine pages, they can be taken off if you’d like to wear them or you can hang the artwork on your wall (with or without the jewelry; you can decide that after purchase for yourself!)
They aren’t up for sale ye;t they have to be photographed properly first…..we’ll keep you posted!
