The inspiration behind the collection is the principle of Shakti, which entered my life many years ago before I was ready to understand it/Her. In my limited knowledge, I have learned that Shakti / The Divine Feminine is a spiritual principle well referenced in Hinduism but well known in many faiths and practices, that is rooted in the feminine modality present within all of us, irrespective of our social gender identity.

Shakti / The Divine Feminine is that seed of inspiration, that spark before action, empowerment, or that "primordial cosmic energy" that begins creation.
Katherine Soutar, and I will be launching early next year.
The collection will be created with our signature hybrid of hand dyed recycled hemp and surplus fabrics, with colors that reference the seven central chakras: root, sacral, solar plexus, heart, throat, third eye, and crown. There are more than seven chakras of course, but we shall start with these. Accessories will include chains and gemstones such as Rose Quartz, Amethyst and Blue Calcite, sourced from magical cidade Rio de Janiero and sourced here in New York.
Created with silhouettes inspired by the multicultural backgrounds of both Frida and Freda, the collection will move like their movements, call upon their memory, while rooting itself in the etheric body that sustains so many artists, and most likely, them as well.

join us this weekend to help light the spark and create the new. History doesn't always have to repeat itself.
1+1+2+2+2+0+1+4 = 13. If you follow numerology, you will know that 13 is the number of the Divine Feminine....Coincidence? I think not.
