Black Magic Women: Muses

Muses are something that every designer has, whether it is in

nature, a person, architecture, literature, or art. It’s your

inspiration of sorts. In Greek mythology muses are the nine daughters

of Mnemosyne and Zeus who inspire the creation of literature and

the arts. They were considered the source of the knowledge, related

orally for centuries in the ancient culture, which was contained in

poetic lyrics and myths. The compliment to a real woman who

inspires creative endeavor is a later idea. When I design I imagine

my muse as a woman and I ask who she is, then I think about what

person/character or celebrity embodies the spirit of the current collection.

And, since my spirit is always torn between the old, or vintage if you will, and

the new; the interesting; the tinge of 80s rock glam, my muses come from all

over time. A style whirlwind mash-up (“What did you say? Leather doesn’t go on

lace…what??”,”The harsh & ruff doesn’t go with soft & frilly?”

Johnny are you queer boy?).

A company’s archetype should have a lot to do with who their

muses are. Sometimes the “face” of the brand is usually the muse

in today’s society. Often times being celebrities or models, which makes

it a little easier to choose them as muses because everybody usually knows

who they are.

The 1930by ChrisJackson “woman” is sort of like a Succubus or a Femme

Fatale (yeah that sounds waaay sexier than Succubus, but you get the point): mysterious,

seductive, irresistible, desirable, a little dangerous, a seductress, an enchantress,

a woman whose charms ensnare her lovers in bonds of irresistible desire,

often leading them into compromising, dangerous,

and deadly situations.

In order for me to get all of that I pull from different places & eras

(Mostly Old Hollywood & the 80s)…..almost like I’m Dr. Frankenstein

building my perfect woman by using different characters (a.k.a celebrities)

because of either their music or roles they’ve played in movies.

IGOR, PULL THE SWITCH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!…………….

……………………..IT’S ALIIIIIVE!!!!

These are the women who inspire me,  GO FIND YOUR OWN!  🙂
