The Universe Is No Narrow Thing

As promised, here is what I’m feelin’ right now. As you can see, it’s rather abstract; I’m thinking more in terms of patterns and colors and things of that sort rather than specific designers, collections, or objects.

You may be wondering how in the world I’m going to apply this all practically… and, to be honest, so am I, but stay tuned! I’ve got some costumes in the works that play off of some of the elements seen above, and I’m excited to start taking inspirational cues from beyond the realm of designers’ and editors’ presentations of modern fashion.

Don’t get me wrong–I love to see designers’ visions in their purest form and also see these translated and amalgamated into editorials because I think both offer distinct and equally valid perspectives on fashion, perspectives I enjoy and thrive on creatively; I just have an itch to step away from that a little bit and try to develop outfits, my wardrobe, and my style as a whole independent of the constant ebb and flow of trends and the dizzying pace and dogmas of the industry….

Maybe I can call this a New Year’s Resolution?? Wish me luck!
