As an artist and creative soul, I have always loved to dress in a playful manner. I remember when I was a little girl, how I entered my Mother's wardrobe as if it was a fairy castle. She owned a wine red satin night gown and slippers with little feathers in the same shade. I would put those on, being way too big and walk around like a queen. She also had a trunk where she would keep old clothes from her youth. There were fur collars and shawls and so many treasures. I would put some on and then we would watch wonderful musicals and old avant-garde films together, and I was dreaming of stories, inventing places and worlds. She let me express all those dream worlds I had deep inside and it is a way, alongside photography, that I go through life's less easy moments.
Decorating our body with clothes that make us feel dear, lovable, hugged in the arms of beauty is a richness and a precious liberty we have. Let's enjoy and fill our inner poetry with spirit, reusing to recreate the clothes that once were loved. And... Be good to our Earth.
