"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 return to the womb of Mother Earth to honor all her marvelous creations and celebrate the miracle of life. In her manifestation as a formidable Greek goddess, Mother Earth made first herself - literally becoming the first self-made woman! - after which she birthed the earth and all its wild beauty. The ultimate source of raw, maternal power, she was worshipped in caves and by springs where her life-giving water burst forth like milk from breasts or menstrual blood. The Greeks called her Gaia: the one we are born from and fed by, but also the one we return to when we die. The original Big Mama. "
