Aurora Girl / CONNECTIONSy

Spring 2018 Collection "Aurora Girl" 

The Spring 2018 Collection draws Inspiration from my time in the world's most northern city, Tromso Norway.  I wanted to pay homage to The simplicity and quiet of the Norwegian landscape. The glow of snow and ice vanishing into the deep shadows of pine forests, set against the night skies flaming Arora, are proof that light can be found in the most remote places. 

I was reminded of this experience while watching a scene from the 2016 film "Moonlight". A story of human experience generally overlooked in error. The film connects the metaphor of a shimmering moon reflected on the surface of deep waters, while all that is beneath remains shrouded in darkness, to the life of a man on a journey of self-discovery.  This idea helped me to better understand that even in darkness there is life unknown. 

This concept combines the emotions and the awareness felt when understanding is present. The intimacy of experience and the courage to explore the unknown are represented in color and texture. The clean lines and sharp cuts of the clothing bring to mind paths not yet traveled. Aurora is a combination of personal exploration and the desire to delve deeper into the world around us.
