As we transition into 2014 the illusions that divide and separate us as beings dissolve. This process starts with the self-cleansing of the mind. Removing all that does not belong to us, allowing us to think clearly and recognize thoughts that are our own instead of sorting through the clutter of images and ideas that have been implanted within our consciousness. The next step in this internal evolution is the integration of mind into heart. This creates a way of being where thoughts merge with intuition and feelings, inviting in an instinctual way of communicating that is open, honest and pure. The magic that is magnetism becomes an undeniable truth and a natural state as we hone our ability to attract what we desire and repel what we do not. In this presence we create space in the mind and are receptive to this planet, each other, together, living the dream that is this reality we have created. This is where the healing begins.
These changes break us out of the negative patterns of the past and bring us into a new alignment with each other and the universe. The interconnectedness of everything is more apparent than ever as is the power of collective intention. We are awakening to our strength and with it the ability to create change. Art is a prayer, music is a prayer, let’s pray together and change the world.
In fashion this evolution translates into play of proportion and integration of opposites. Look for the merging of shapes and lines in pattern as well as unexpected combinations of fabric and textures. Emphasis is given to light, reflectiveness and glowing appearances, all metaphors for how we think & live. Garments will address the element of dissolving illusions, which will take form in unraveling, gradients and fractaling of pattern fabric and print. There will also be a focus on the head, crowns and adorning with hats, elaborate hair and halo like structures denoting our nobility as infinite beings. Themes will shine from the past as well as the future as we adjust our vision to experience where we are, where we were, and will be, together in each moment.
Love the dark sounds of Salem paired with the imagery from film The Color of Pomegranites.
Stepping out from a time of exploring darkness, duality in self and nature, we have come to a space of open authenticity where we are confident and centered in our minds. We understand the origin of our thoughts, feelings and that they are the spark of creation. With this we have developed a grounded sense of infinite being and a lightness that can illuminate the darkest of nights. Our wisdom translates to freedom, strength and grace, a timeless structure that welcomes our return. We are a community of artists, connected, creating our own freedom. With clear intention we can now move forward united.
In Fashion we reflect the growing power of femininity through structured and timeless, genderless garments. Style remembers history as we create our own, reaching back to artistic concepts like Bauhause where art shapes a way of living and encompasses our lives. In color we will see monochromatic and primary palettes as well as fabrics that convey or conduct a sense of light. Styling will be simple with little embellishment and a focus on layering and garments that can be worn multiple ways.
Have you found yourself in a space of feeling unsettled with a hunger in your soul for what is next, what is bigger and better….yet no matter where you are or how much you acquire a feeling of void follows you like a shadow? When the distractions subside, there you are, looking to fill the hollow…. with something more real, something more awake.
First there must be quiet, then as we listen to the dark we feel the hidden parts of our self surface when we give the mind space to settle. Here the truth separates from the clutter left behind of past memories and attachments – let these distractions, desires and trinkets fall away allowing the mind to awake in a new reality that is ever more yours, ever more free. Are you open to feeling experiences instead of just observing, truly participating in this world of wonder that surrounds us?
What we crave is an intensified experience; a heightened sense of being that is just below the surface. To achieve this all that is needed is the willingness and the courage to swim into the depths and answer to your self…when you reply the simplicity of this hidden beauty is revealed. On the light side of the surface divers come up with riches from the waters of our imaginations, free flowing colors and textures presenting a potent array awakening the senses; a hyper real experience. Will you be a venturer, an explorer of the deep, brave enough to confront the darkness past and transform it into truth and clarity?
Look closely at the messages that spring from our subconscious and creativity reinforced by synchronicity. The images we create are getting louder as the space between realities is shrinking. The patterns are bold, a symbol of the vibrating energy of all things… the colors are neon, demanding we recognize the power of saturation, faces transform into paintings, hair into sculpture. We are re-inventing ourselves in the space that we create, sprouting flowers from our heart that bleed onto our fabric. Here, comfortable in the waters of self, submerged, cultivating the connection we have to shape, color and symbols we find ourselves tracing their root to emotion. How do these powerful elements of imagery make you feel and what is their origin? Lets emerge from the waters of life, connect with earth and trace our journey back to who we were, what we are and what we will become. Walking this path with awakened senses, enveloped by this hyper real beauty it is our pleasure to plant seeds along the way that will sprout magic in the minds to follow.
