Release your inner alfa!
I remember watching this movie for the first time. I was young and eager, looking for ways to express myself as a woman – in a unique but also powerful way. Back then, I didn’t have too many role models. Until the day I discovered Gloria. I can still feel the satisfaction of finally seeing a female lead (Gena Rowland) portrayed as strong and dominant, instead of dependent and obedient. By being the first “godmother” amongst a group of gangster, Gloria helped defying social clichés about women. 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.
