{ Far, Far Away }

I love styling because it allows me to tell stories without words, to manifest a dream, and to make fantasies a reality. It appeals to the child inside me, who loves to make art and play paper dolls and dress-up. And it brings me into collaborative partnership with such an interesting array of deliciously demented creatives ~ strange, wonderful, fascinating people who challenge and inspire me. Recently I found myself among a really lovely lot of these, crafting a fantastical fairytale for Genlux Magazine. I couldn’t resist sharing the results with you here… I hope you’ll feel every bit of the magic we did while concocting this imaginative Neverland!

    Magical, just magical! I am in love with the Gucci outfit.

    Amazing work, so inspiring. I think we needed this after yesterday’s tragedy in Boston. Thank you for sharing.

  • Sgravalli Fashion Jewellery

    I saw this few days ago at the website of this fabulous illustrator Katie, I was amazed by her artwork before, and then when I saw this combined with fashion and put in this dreamy story, I just loved it. All pieces are so well put together. Everything is so unique, so artistic. I could easily frame any of this on my walls! And that is one creative crown lady!

    One of your most fantastical and creative. I’ve been wanting those wellies, wondering if they would look good with dresses.

    • Anonymous

      Thank you! And YES on the wellies ~ I think the shortened height makes them perfect for pairing with dresses.
