The make-up for the Shaman collection was inspired by an image of an Indian woman who had these black tattoos under her eyes making her appear as if crying with streaks of mascara running.
We expanded our accessories for the Relics line. I was heavily inspired by the Shaman culture; especially by the healers and practitioners of Louisiana Voodoo, developed from the traditions of the African diaspora and found mainly in the state of Louisiana in the United States. In these cultures, the girls are clothed in crisp white cotton dresses and dainty floral prints, and they drink elixirs taking them into a transcendental state. We drew upon these visuals in creating fresh white cotton shirting and incorporating lace and blankets, blending the prettiness of the collection with amulets and talismans of braids, silver skulls, feathers, beads and buttons.
