THE WORLD IS BETTER WITH A LITTLE BLUE

Blue is for the ocean,

Clear and true

Like your eyes,

and your soul on  some days.

When everything is heavy,

Eventually…

I hope you smile for yourself

From a deep place.

I wish you only love and light

XoXo

Love and light,

SHEDDING THE LIGHT ON DOMESTIC VIOLENCE

I heard them sometimes, the thuds in the night, the screams, the silent cries were the worst. Things fell in the room, but the thuds were the worst. You were not sure what was broken, who was dented, who was bleeding

They were fighting again, or our aunt had come knocking frantically on our door to escape from her husband, the father of her children, who was battering her.

If you have not experienced domestic violence in one way or another growing up or currently, then I have to say in addition to being rare you and your family are quite lucky and should keep up the peace

In my opinion nothing justifies having to be physically and even psychologically made to suffer, in any way shape or form

To anyone in such a situation reading this, you have two choices, stay or leave...

Happy Valentine’s Day! Its origin is shrouded in some mystery, but the most wide spread tale is as below;

He died for love and was martyred...

WATER, FIRE, EARTH

Nature and the elements surround us and breathe life into us, embalm us into the embrace of the world, we set out to re-make the three main elements as gowns and looks as a homage to life and the world and as a loop between fashion and the elements we encounter in our lives.

We encounter fire sometimes, burning pain and loss, like the Paris attacks, and the attacks in Lebanon and Beirut, Nigeria, Kenya, Syria, and so many other countries and areas and regions and continents, fire scorches us in pain and loss but we must stay strong and use  the pain and the fire to forge our strength, our fortitude and courage.

we encounter water, we are swept away by life floods and actual floods, we experience tsunamis like Japan and Mexico, we experience El-nino rains like Uganda, Madagascar, Kenya and...
