How can I not start with how we are all feeling about 2016? So many talents have passed on. The whole year has felt like our generation’s entertainers have abandoned us.
Last week @misstexas67 tweeted, “It is becoming increasingly obvious that David Bowie has established a better alternate Universe and is populating it selectively one by one”. Yes, I suppose that could be a strange reality.
Every year over the Christmas holidays I take a day or 2 to rest and then I just can’t do it anymore. My creativity goes into overdrive and I want to “do” something!! That “something” this Christmas was designing the glamjulz spring collection.
My Mom and I went to see the movie La La Land over the holidays and the colours and dreamy sets were so inspiring. I felt like I was watching a modern version of Xanadu.
The next day, after seeing the movie I got my pencil crayons out and started sketching colours that got my heart pumping throughout the film. As I was going through the process I realized that each colour story I was creating represented a different entertainment icon that had passed away in 2016.
The entertainers who were dearest to me kept showing up in the range of colours that I was influenced by for Spring 2017. This collection feels more emotional and meaningful than any of my previous collections. As I was creating it felt like these beautiful angels who brought us singing, dancing and acting were guiding me through my creative process.
I hope that David Bowie named his alternate Universe Xanadu or La La Land, all of our heroes deserve to be in a place where magic is real and dreams always come true.
I am very excited about launching the Spring 2017 collection .
Sharing it with you will be my joy and I hope that it brings you sweet memories of your life and what these people may have meant to you.
Let’s make 2017 extra special!
I am looking forward to learning and growing and feeling more powerful with you each day. I want this year to be epic for all of us!
Please join me and share what you are most looking forward to. I’d love it if you would leave your comments on the blog.
Thank you for being a part of my world! I know that this is why each year just gets better and better!
