"All my work as a feminist designer is inspired by muses. Powerful female icons from past and present. Through my designs, I bring them to you to help us shape the world of modern-day feminism.

This season, we ascend the throne of our personal power by channeling the original Feminine Feminist: Cleopatra. A shrewd strategist, a skilled diplomat and a dazzling self-promoter, the Egyptian queen ruled for 22 years with more courage and charisma than most male leaders before her. Not afraid to celebrate and deploy her femininity, Cleopatra mixed passion and politics, and was slutshamed for it for over 2000 years. Well, let them talk! From 'femme fatale' to 'evil seductress'; the queen herself would have laughed off the labels, knowing that no patriarchal propaganda can obscure the glorious power of a woman who owns her femininity"

cleopatra and I

"Now, that's how you make an entrance!" I told my 10-year old self when I watched a voluptuous Elizabeth Taylor roll out of a carpet and onto the floor with stunning sass and self-possession in the movie 'Cleopatra' (1963). Liz, or Cleopatra - they became interchangeable to me - was about to lose it all and had smuggled herself into Caesar's palace to beg for help. But of course, this bad-ass b***h didn't beg but demand, casually stealing the Roman general's heart while she was at it. Within a few minutes, I made a second mental note: when life drags you down, don't be a drag, be a queen!"
