Fashion and Poetry

What could be in the world of Fashion and Poetry that unite them in one entity?
The answer is short - the Majesty Inspiration. Both Fashion and Poetry are siblings and have one parent called Arts. To create a successful peace of art, we need inspiration, the muse that feeds the creative process of  art and design.

There are endless interactions a muse can take - a truly wonderful day, Greek goddess, fairy-tale princess, woman, celebrity, artist, slogan or motto, or combination of things and events.
There are many studies that include samples of fashion inspiration from the first couturier Charles Frederick Worth and his wife; Elsa Schiaparelli and the Surrealists; Yves Saint Laurent and Piet Mondrian; Oleg Cassini and Jaqueline Kennedy; Audrey Hepburn and Hubert de Givenchy.

For example, Alexander McQueen's crafty carryalls have inspirational equation of a Celtic prayer-cloth tree plus friendship bracelets and plus 18-th century British needlepoint. Another sample from contemporary fashion could be the Miu Miu's plushie stompers. Add a dog collar plus Paris Hilton and plus Elmo, and the summary illustrates the season's most memorable accessories.

A truck with an advertising slogan passed by and made strong statement, but what if we take these words and describe something else by telling a new story and in the way we creating new information? As a result, a poem is born out of the inspiration of few words. For example:
"Dorothy was right, no place like home for solders in fight that making the heroic flight..." (IT, 2007)
