A Fiery Heart

There’s always a little romance in my collections, and while designing Fall / Winter 2016,  I was reading the novel Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte.  I immersed myself in the Victorian world of a strong, independent woman – and the romance took a bit of a sharper tone, with razor cut florals on leather, studded collars on lace.   Modern women have active lives and are often the strength as well as the heart of the family — but still want to look and feel beautiful.

This summer,  I read Charlotte Bronte:   A Fiery Heart, a biography which helps to contextualize when Jane Eyre was written — a time when women were dutiful but becoming more and more rebellious and ambitious.
