"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 look deep into the steel-blue eyes of Lee Miller and see beyond the clichés of the privileged woman with the glamorous life. A 20th Century Renaissance woman, Lee made her mark in a mindboggling diversity of roles: surrealist icon, Vogue cover girl, innovative art photographer, legendary war journalist, gourmet chef. Let's get inspired by the way she transformed lifelong pain - from childhood sexual abuse to post war stress disorder - into art; by the way she used her feminine capital to transform herself from a muse into a master. Most importantly, let's celebrate the colorful life of a formidable feminine feminist who refused to be pigeonholed!"

Lee Miller & I

"After days of relentlessly calling Rihanna's management, I finally got through. "We love your stuff, but Rihanna is shooting in New York tomorrow," I was told. "Such a coincidence; I'm traveling there today!", I heard myself say, as I frantically started looking for last-minute plane tickets. My bluffing paid off: Rihanna fell in love with my spider set and rocked it on the back cover of her 'Rated R' album. Finding inspiration in the bravura of the legendary, multi-talented Lee Miller, I learned from the best.

When I learned about Lee, it wasn't just as a surrealist icon and a Vogue cover girl, but also as an innovative art photographer and a legendary war journalist. Wow, here was a woman who dared to embrace and explore all her talents! In one of my favorite stories, she traveled from New York to Paris in 1929, hoping to make photographer Man Ray her creative mentor. "My name is Lee Miller, and I'm your new student," she declared upon meeting him. Ray explained that he wasn't interested and besides, he would be vacationing in Biarritz the next day. "So am I," Lee bluffed. The rest is (art) history: after three years as Ray's student and muse, Lee became a masterful photographer in her own right. My kind of bravura, I decided."

"This spectacular Couture Collection is my homage to photographer Lee Miller's sensual beauty and brave, rebellious heart. To capture her essence, I combined an ultrafeminine design with a dapper tartan pattern which was printed digitally onto smooth, recycled microfiber fabric. The coquettish fringe and a-symmetrical skirt refer to Lee's flirty side; the robust buckles and shiny chains symbolize her warrior soul. Pour yourself into this formidable, formfitting set and feel Lee Miller's untamable spirit come alive inside you. Dare to defy all labels. Dare to be YOU!"
