Spotted Tyra Banks

Spotted Tyra Banks

One of America’s ultimate top models, Tyra Banks, spotted in my designs, but this lady has a remarkable story.

I am always excited to see strong women wearing my lingerie, but the story of Miss Banks is a remarkable one. Today Tyra is a successful woman in charge of her own imperium. But in the past she has had to overcome plenty of challenges. During her youth she was tainted by severe bullying about her looks, unbelievable but true. It is amazing she was able to overcome these hurdles and eventually built a multimillion dollar empire based upon her looks. Isn’t she one of the greatest examples of daring to dream, daring to grow, daring to be!

Thom Kerr photographed this power woman for the “Black Magic” issue of Black Magazine. Dressed in a body of my Mauritshuis Collection, I think Tyra looks absolutely fierce. What a beautiful inspiration to all women with ambition.

For the designs of this Fall Winter 2014 collection, I was inspired by the heroic story of Joan of Arc. Reflecting the past years while having experienced all aspects of life, I found this legend of Joan of Arc admirable and inspirational.
