Inspired by the Cosmos, the celestial sparkling of sequins (round disc like ornaments covering fabric that reflect light) mirror a myriad of color combinations drawn directly from the universe. The Cosmic Sequin Collection is an attempt to merge the mystery, beauty and magic of space with fashion and launch infinite dreams of wonder and bewilderment -all in a slice of wearable cosmically inspired art.
“My vision is to have the wearer draped in shimmering galactic wonders inspired and reflected in the luminosity of the tiny sparkling sequins, in the form of my modern take on a Kimono jacket.”
“Looking to the cosmos as a way of inspiration for sequin color choices came to me intrinsically. I was reviewing my sequin fabrics and asking myself what do they look/feel like? I immediately saw the cosmos in my mind’s eye and began a deep dive in researching images of galaxies, stars, solar systems, planets and everything in between! I was flooded with a rush of energy- as before my very eyes, each pre-selected sequin pallet in my collection was perfectly matched with the most mesmerizing image taken in space by NASA’s Hubble and Chandra. It was as though a cosmic piece of the infinite puzzle had fit perfectly into place with my art and I had blasted off into space to find it. It was a very cosmic almost meditative, trance like experience. I even consulted astro-physicist enthusiast Jean-Nil Boulanger, my step-father, to show him my findings as though they were scientific, much to his amusement and appreciation. It's metaphysical fashion, nothing more, nothing less."
