Blood Wounded Flowers S/S 10

(photos by Bella)
(Inspirational Board)

One of many reasons I love Blue Onion Marketplace luxury boutique is the tremendous versatility each piece invokes when you least expect it. Sifting through the dynamics of experimentation and innovative design, alongside the webbing art of styling/accessorizing, it's comes down to the blueprint details. So, it's no surprise that when owner, Michele Syre, contacted me, I was thrilled with the opportunity to collaborate and reconstruct the Dulken & Derrick Flower Pins she'd sent over. The only obvious answer was yes, but with vertiginous elation, I assure you.
After studying each piece and drawing from personal inspiration, Alex and I spent the afternoon immersed in our little craft vessel. Entranced. Moody. Entertained.
Ultimately, the decision to integrate some of the ominously-evocative elements of designer Carol Christian Poell as well as Dior Homme S/S 02 Boys Don't Cry/RED Collection solved all those contemplative expressions. Delving into the etherealization of Dulken & Derrick, haunting rock, wounded love, classic Chanel, pretty vs. painstakingly dirty, and a menswear slim-fit silhouette, we counterbalanced our own interpretations against such a list of exquisite designers.
We couldn't be happier with the end results. Thank you Michele... you're amazing!!!

I love the way you formatted everything...normal photos followed by the groups of polaroids. There's a wonderful dark romanticism to all of it. Your shoe shots look great. Of course the feather flower... And you finished it off with a smile! :D The inspiration board is great, too! Wonderful work, love!!!!!!!!!

Cherokee | Drawing Progress

As a woman of esteemed Cherokee ancestry, I've wanted to express and create a more spiritual atmosphere to my art for a long time. One that specifically depicts my bloodline... the strength, courage and exemplary virtues of some of the women I've been fortunate enough to know in my life.
“The Cherokees did not separate spiritual and physical realms but regarded them as one, and they practiced their religion in a host of private daily observances as well as in public ceremonies.”
