Revel in the Redolent Reflection of 1994 Re-Edition Mag

Rianne Van Rompaey revels in redolent reflection of 1994 by Mert & Marcus for Re-Edition Magazine Issue 11. Rianne’s dynamic look can go from natural to neo-natural with the blink of an eye. She is not a placid person. Her emotions are raw and real with feelings that run deep. Exposing the memories to a tantalizing twist. She travels back in time to explore the annals of the mind, expressing this excess with genuine authenticity. 

Hang High In Sky... This Is My Reason... This Is My Why

Ansley Gulielmi finds her center at the ‘Dunes’ by Txema Yeste for Numero #201, March 2019. To celebrate the sky in all it’s glory. To pay homage to the past as we honor the land that feeds and the sea that surrounds. The rivers rage unto the sea ever changing in majesty… to ebb and flow wild and free as the winds of change blow in harmony. Art is a construct. Like a movie filmed in fluid motion, creative forces fuse from one source to another. 

Rei Kawakubo Let's Freedom Reign - AnOther Magazine

Susannah Frankel gets intimate with designer, Rei Kawakubo, as Craig McDean captures the heart of Comme des Garçons for AnOther Magazine, SS 2019.

The age of empowerment has returned with a bang, as we celebrate the beauty of being bold. The Glamorous Amazon caught rise in the 80’s, as Thierry Mugler turned many a young woman into fearless females. Rising from the ashes of oppression we are witness to the wonder. Peering over the dense city below, Josephine poses at the roofs edge, finally able to see her place in this big world. 

'Employ Sculptural Shapes to Alter Perception of Body'

Linda Helena wears a series of sculptural styles as she steps into a design dream by Carlijn Jacobs for Document Journal, Spring 2019. To Reveal is to Conceal, as we witness the body come into view. The art of exposure opens one door as it closes another, leaving us to wonder what secrets are still cloaked. The most abstract image has Helena showing the Gaultier suit as if it were alive. Stepping into the fabric, you get the feeling the material is being held up by a power beyond our understanding. 

Bravado Becomes Her ~ Charlotte Delves Into Dark Side

Delving into the dark side Charlotte Rose says “Goodbye, innocence” by Willy Vanderperre for Vogue Italia, January 2019. Unique designers have their own perspective, but here it appears they’ve synced their senses. In an elevated manner we are witness to this wonder. To avoid stilted prose I must look beyond the page. I must go deeper. Journey into the unknown. Katy England’s divine designs create sweeps of flowing fabrics. 

Submerge to See Truth of Me... Art of Underwater Poetry

Vivien Solari evokes a sense of ethereal being swimming through the subconscious in ‘Elari’s Wake’ by Emma Tempest for Vogue Italia, 12/18. Under Cover of Water… Time Diminishes. Giving Rise to the Sentient Spirit… The Essence of Her Being is Awakened. Engaging Armor of Ethos… Her Inner Artistry is Restored. Uplifting Energy… Unleashing Her Peace. 

In the Depths of Bold Blue There Lives a Hue that's True

“THE MYTH IS IN ART,” words spoken by abstract creator, Yves Klein. This line is taken from a piece performed on the stage in 1960. Simple yet strikingly complex. The Monotone-Silence Symphony (first performed in 1960), a performance in which an orchestra plays a single note for 20 minutes, followed by a 20-minute period of silence. Someone seen as divinely sublime. He was an existentialist at heart, but also displayed an egoist sense of being. 

Dreams Defined by Ethereal Designs "Colour Overload"

Kris Grikaite becomes a kaleidoscope of couture in ‘Colour Overload’ by Sølve Sundsbø for Vogue China, 01/19. The art of avant-garde enticement lies in it’s ability to surprise. To evoke thoughts not common or shapes never seen. It thrives to give life to a flat image, while rising to meet the height. Fabric makes it’s way around the body, enhancing every curve and inspiring every concept. 

Helena Almeida Dentro de mim [Inside me], Her Creative Work Calls for Poetic Words

When pen is called to paper and I am called to cast my will upon such words that will compliment distinguished works. That is a moment to revel as camaraderie both connects us as persons and purveyors of such dynamic art…

Welcome to the World of the Raw

what’s inside is out

what’s outside is in

leaving tortures of tourism

to all but weigh in

I’ll close down my doors

to these tourists of will

I’ll shut down access

and drink til’ I fill

my body with beauty

the kind I can’t name

living within me

I shutter in shame

don’t leave me behind

but, will me away

don’t turn me aside

just never say…

that you’ll stay

poetic prose – tanyajo
