Music & fashion (Nina Sky x Stoli)


With a glance, it's almost impossible to not want to be Nina Sky sisters, Nicole and Natalie Albino's long-lost bff. Heavily influenced by Gwen Stefani, they epitomize a raw femininity and masculine cadence that seeps with inspiration. So in honor of ORGNL TV, Stoli asked me to share a few thoughts on the many music and fashion related connections seen and heard over the years.

It's no surprise that Madonna had us all craving lace corsets, pearls and enough tulle to outfit the entire cast of Swan Lake. Or that the year 1957 marks the teen teary-eyed upheaval of Elvis shaking what his mama gave him in a gold lamé suit. It's obvious the parallels between music and fashion have long been hitting hard. And who can forget Lennon's signature sunglasses... a quick Google search and suddenly Liverpool surfaces a mere second to the fashion-friendly inundation of circle frame designs from here to Timbuktu.

In modern times we see everything from designer collection inspired by music and Vogue covers (ahem, Lana Del Ray and Lady Gaga) to Kayne West and his gorgeous (and by gorgeous I mean falls out chair because they cost $5000 gorgeous) Giuseppe Zanotti collaboration. And let's not forget that ridiculously modest soirée often referred to as The Grammy's. As much as the actual awards are truly honored, for many the dedicated fascination remains in what our favorite musicians' decide to wear.

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.”

New Drawing ▲The Main Light

It's always exciting to share new artwork, especially after spending hours, days and sometimes weeks mapping through imaginative ideas and all those billowing clouds of charcoal dust. Through this much-needed experiment of breaking the boundaries of my comfort zone, I'm anxious to develop as an artist... and in the same thought, I know that growth takes time. Until then, I'll keep taking small steps towards something bigger.
The Main Light, is the second drawing in a new collection I've been diligently creating. Don't forget to look back on the first piece, Silent Forest, as well as thesneak peek I shared the other day!
