fill the hole up with dirt

victorian sci-fi surgery // press release

Her current work was inspired by exploring feelings of emotional restrain and uncertainly about her position in time.
She uses escapism to create a subconscious reality were time has no boundaries and she can bounce
from past to future to collect data in an attempt to discover her purpose in the present.
This is were she developed her designs for the current collection.
the collection mixes periods and materials to create a historical camouflage
making it difficult to associate with at particular period in documented time.
this allows her to jump from era to era collection data unnoticed
in hopes of one day understanding the world, human nature and herself.
the collection was hand made entirely with her own hands in a long and meditative state
adding a personal and emotional connection to each individual piece.
she believes this transfers a bit of her aura to the piece in hope that the glow will shine
acting like a light house of hope to lost and weary roamers so that they will know they are not alone.
the collection consist mostly of brown and cream leathers, bronze fixtures and old stamps
which gives the appearance of being made from reminisce of an abandoned victorian house.
the t-shirt imagery is representative of a nameless ghost who explores the
timeless subconscious world as people run with fear of the unknown.
the platform shoes are an tool for the explorer. There towering heights create a pedestal form which she can look over crowded,
infinite seas of people trying to stay afloat while searching for answers on this busy planet.

a year ago i stumbled upon gabriellas first collection , clothing for the emotionally dispossessed.
this afternoon i thought id have a look to see if she had created yet another ingenious ensemble.

of course she had.

we could start at the feet - and the perfect wedge.
or maybe the harnessed knee pads.
oh wait - theres also those finger gloves.

fuck it - try the whole white body suit strapped waist and thigh topped off
with the perfect lookbook imagery from sarah piantadosi.

I thought I'd found the perfect wedge in Jeffrey Campbell's Zero Peep Toes (soon to be mine!!) but now I'm in a quandary... Help!
