Toile La La F/W 2014-2015 RTW Romantic Souls Fashion Show: Details.

Ideas for the 2014 Fall/Winter collection occurred after rain, thunder, and a rainbow - with a half-moon in the sky... late in the evening, mid-July 2013.  The air - damp, charged, and humming energetically.  The sky - still light, with both sun and moon visible - 7:30 or 8:00 PM.  Some of the colors were right there in the sky:  a grey - blustery and warm, a fierce graphite grey, cloud formations the color of shipsail canvas cloth, matte chalk, smoke or bones, bits of blue sky or robin's egg.  Within my mind's eye were the atmospheric colors of dusk and dawn; the silver and gold of winking stars - or of regimental buttons; blushing colors of love - and the stuff of dreamers. Emerging from primordial nature and hidden between the glowing golden hour and twilight silhouettes - were all the romantic souls:  diggers of dirt, laborers, soldiers, believers, explorers, sailors, peasants, saints, pierrots, cowboys, mimes, builders of steeples, and scholars from vast expanses..., the geisha of skilled subtlety and equanimity.  The resonance of voices, the ringing of bells, the equality of shadows.
