GLORIA PINSTRIPE BLACK
"My Gloria collection is designed for ladies taking the lead. I was inspired by the female gangster movie “Gloria”. A groundbreaking piece of art in the history of film and feminism. I remember watching this movie as a young woman. I can still feel the satisfaction of finally seeing a female lead (Gena Rowland) portrayed as strong and dominant, instead of dependent and obedient.
For this collection I linked Gloria’s strength to the concept of power suits. In my design I translated this into powerful pinstripe patterns and macho suspender straps. Wear my Gloria to release your inner alfa!"
