For Spring 2015, designer Marjan Pejoski calls upon and evokes the Modern Muse. At a time when many look to the future, Pejoski takes us there via the past. The craft and supreme artistry of Josiah Wedgewood and Robert Adams are celebrated throughout the collection.
Cameos no longer represent silhouettes of silent women, they’ve now been reclaimed by Pejoski as a symbol of the pioneering super woman – driven, intelligent, compassionate and spirited – women like – Atalanta, Boudica, Georgiana Duchess of Devonshire, Lady Hamilton, Emmeline Pankhurst, Jane Addams, C J. Walker, Simone de Beauvoir, Peggy Guggenheim, Marie Curie, Isadora Duncan, Margaret Mead, Hedy Lamarr, Georgia O’Keefe, Germaine Greer, and Aung San Suu Kyi.
The modern muse fuses together past and present in the eternal re-defining quest to be what is the quintessence of now.
