Femme fatal fashion
"The emerging woman... will be strong-minded, strong-hearted, strong-souled, and strong-bodied... strength and beauty must go together" Louisa May Alcott
I have to say, one of my favourite shows of LFW AW20 was Edeline Lee. Why? Because it was about so much more than the fashion, it told a beautiful story of female empowerment. The presentation took place on the stage of the Apollo Theatre, where models appeared across the stage in a serious of choreographed vignettes. The narration started as film quotes, based on the physical appearance of women, but as they show went on they started to turn into powerful feminist quotes. I left really inspired, I've even started working on some prints based on some silhouettes and quotes.
"I grew up wishing for protectors, strangers to carry my bags, truck drivers to whistle out windows. I will never be feminine, and feminine in the worst way. Submissive. Dependent. Soft spoken. Coquettish. I was no good at any of it, no good a being a girl; on the other hand, I'm not half bad at being a woman." Nora Ephron, Collected Works
"Some women choose to follow men, and some choose to follow their dreams. If you're wondering which way to go, remember that your career will never wake up and tell you that it doesn't love you anymore" Lady Gaga
