    CHIC DAHLIA INTERPRETATION “Clothes as text, clothes as narration, clothes as a story. Clothes as the story of our lives. And if you were to gather all the clothes you have ever owned in all your life, each baby shoe and winter coat and wedding dress, you would have your autobiography.” ― Linda Grant, The Thoughtful Dresser BEAUTY NEVER FADES Vintage fashion from the 1930s is often characterized by its elegance, sophistication, and attention to detail. This era was influenced by the Art Deco movement, which emphasized streamlined, geometric designs and a love of luxury materials such as silk and velvet. ​ One of the most iconic looks of the period was the bias-cut dress. This style, which featured a diagonal cut that draped over the body, emphasized the natural curves of a woman's figure and created a fluid, flowing silhouette. Other popular dress styles included tea-length dresses with puffed sleeves, ruffled necklines, and intricate embroidery. ​ In terms of outerwear, the 1930s saw the rise of fur coats, often trimmed with bold, contrasting colors such as red or green. Another popular choice was the fitted wool coat, often belted at the waist to create a more structured look. ​ Accessories also played a significant role, with women often pairing their outfits with long, dangling earrings, Art Deco-inspired brooches, and colourful silk scarves. For footwear, high-heeled pumps and strappy sandals were the go-to choices, often adorned with intricate details such as bows or beading. ​ In terms of menswear, the 1930s saw a shift towards a more relaxed, comfortable style. Suits became less formal, with looser cuts and softer fabrics, and were often paired with colorful ties and patterned shirts. Tweed jackets and corduroy trousers were also popular choices, especially for more casual occasions. ​ The period surrounding the 1930s is characterized by its attention to detail and emphasis on luxury materials. From bias-cut dresses to fur-trimmed coats, this era produced some of the most iconic styles in fashion history, many of which continue to inspire designers to this day. MANUFACTURED ELEGANCE The 1930s was a decade of great creativity and innovation in fashion, and several designers emerged during this era who have since become legendary. ​ One of the most well-known designers of the 1930s was the inimitable Coco Chanel. She is credited with revolutionizing women's fashion by creating simple, elegant designs that allowed women to move freely and comfortably. Her signature style included the use of jersey fabric, which had previously been reserved for men's underwear, and the little black dress, which has become a timeless classic. ​ Elsa Schiaparelli was another prominent designer of the 30s. She was known for her whimsical and surrealist designs, which often incorporated unexpected elements such as lobster motifs, fur trim, and bold colours. Schiaparelli was also a pioneer in the use of zippers in clothing, which were still a novelty at the time. ​ Madeleine Vionnet was a French designer who was known for her innovative use of bias-cut fabric. Her designs were characterized by their flowing, elegant lines and delicate draping, which emphasized the natural curves of the body. Vionnet also experimented with asymmetrical designs and geometric shapes, creating a style that was both modern and timeless. ​ Finally, Jeanne Lanvin was a French designer who created some of the most exquisite and delicate designs of the era. She was known for her use of luxurious materials such as silk and velvet, and for her intricate embroidery and lacework. Lanvin also created a line of children's clothing, which was characterized by its simple, elegant style. ​ The 1930s produced some of the most influential and creative fashion designers of the 20th century. From Coco Chanel's timeless classics to Elsa Schiaparelli's surrealist designs, the styles of this era continue to inspire and influence.

  • Trent Anthony Francis | Mother | Interpretation

    MOTHER INTERPRETATION “No one weaves the exquisite quite like Mother Nature.” ― Foster Kinn, Freedom's Rush: Tales from The Biker and The Beast THE SYMBIOTIC RELATIONSHIP In which two or more organisms interact with each other and have a mutually beneficial relationship. In other words, both parties involved in the relationship benefit from the interaction. ​ There are several types of symbiotic relationships, including mutualism, commensalism, and parasitism. MUTUALISM // ​ In which both organisms involved benefit from the interaction. In a mutualistic relationship, both organisms derive some sort of benefit, such as nourishment, protection, or a place to live, and is mutually beneficial.​ ​ COMMENSALISM // ​ In which one organism, the commensal, benefits from the relationship, while the other organism, the host, is neither harmed nor benefited. In a commensal relationship, the commensal organism derives some sort of benefit, such as nourishment, protection, or a place to live, while the host is unaffected by the presence of the commensal.​ ​ PARASITISM // ​ In which one organism, the parasite, benefits at the expense of another organism, the host. In a parasitic relationship, the host is usually harmed, while the parasite derives some sort of benefit, such as nourishment, protection, or a place to live. THE GREAT EQUALIZER Ecclesiastes 3:20 says, "All go to one place. All are from the dust, and to dust all return." ​ The verse touches on the idea of the great equalizer, as it reminds us that death does not discriminate based on social status, wealth, or other external factors. In this way, the verse can be seen as a reminder of the common humanity that we all share and the ultimate futility of trying to elevate ourselves above others or to amass wealth and power. ​ Some may also interpret the verse as a commentary on the ultimate meaninglessness of human endeavours, as everything will eventually return to the Earth. This interpretation suggests that, in the grand scheme of things, our actions and achievements may not matter, as they will ultimately be erased by the passage of time. This perspective can be seen as a cautionary reminder to not become too attached to material possessions or accomplishments, as they, like us, will inevitably fade away.

    WAYFARER INTERPRETATION “And if you were not trained, the lesser members of the galaxy that had become visible were so many as to drown the familiar constellations. The night was wild with suns.” ― Poul Anderson, Tau Zero THE SCOPE OF SCIENCE FICTION At its core, sci-fi is about depicting and exploring the futuristic, the speculative, and the unimaginable. Whether it's a depiction of a far-off galaxy, a neon drenched cyberpunk metropolis, or a vast alien landscape, it's driven by the desire to visualize and bring to life worlds and concepts that exist beyond the limits of our current reality. ​ The purpose of science fiction is to explore what could be possible in the future, to imagine strange new worlds and technologies, to ask the big questions about the human condition and our place in this sprawling universe. While the genre is not a scientific field in and of itself, it often incorporates scientific principles and theories through its storytelling and artistic inspirations. ​ In some cases, science fiction can even inspire scientific research and innovation. For example, the concept of a communications satellite, which allows for the transmission of signals from one location on the Earth to another, was first proposed in Arthur C. Clarke's 1945 novel Wireless World . The first communications satellite was launched into orbit in the 1960s, making Clarke's science fiction idea, a reality. LIFE BEYOND EARTH Intelligent life is defined as that which has the ability to think, reason, and make decisions on its own. While we don’t yet (officially) know if there is intelligent life beyond Earth, it is certainly feasible that such life could exist elsewhere in the universe. ​ There are several factors that contribute to this likelihood. One factor is the abundance of many habitable planets in the universe. A wearable planet is one that is capable of supporting life as we currently know it, with the necessary conditions such as water, an atmosphere, and a stable climate that would sustain an ecosystem of life forms. ​ Recent studies have estimated that there may be billions of wearable planets in our very own Milky Way galaxy, and there are an estimated 2 trillion galaxies in the observable universe. This means that there are potentially billions of opportunities for life to arise and evolve on other planets. ​ While the evolution of intelligent life on Earth required a series of complex steps and conditions to manifest into what we know today, it is possible that the process could be more straightforward on other planets. For example, if a planet had a stable climate and the necessary resources for life to thrive, it is possible that life could evolve a lot more quickly than it has over time here on Earth.
