I'm a hopeless romantic designer.
"There is no limit to what we can be hopelessly romantic about, to what we can choose to love and care for most in this world. Every one of us should go through life with that improbable, intoxicating infatuation for something — even if that something will never quite say “I love you” in return. Because even if your dedication proves difficult, or ultimately impossible to attain, the moments where you feel most alive will always be when you love with no regard for moderation. You don’t need to love romantic comedies and fairy tales and wedding magazines to be a hopeless romantic — you only need to be in love with life."
Chelsea Fagan, Thought Catalog.
TIMELESS WOMEN This is a man's world, but it wouldn't be nothing without a woman or a girl
The main focus of Timeless Women is to explore and enrich the beauty of sisterhood throughout the decades. The connection that women are able to have with one another can be an effortless and everlasting thing. It's a story of how we are connected and at the end of the day, we are each others sisters through lifetimes if not decades.
During my academic year abroad at HAWK in Hildesheim, Germany an idea, or feeling rather, came rushing to me. One evening I had a few girls over for dinner and as we were laughing and having these deep conversations about life, dreams and love. I instantly was absorbed with fascination that despite cultural differences, age, language barriers and personal upbringings there was a untouchable connection between one another. Although this was the beginning of what would become close friendships it felt like we had known each other all our lives.
SO I TURNED BACK THE CLOCK
In regards to creating a timeless friendship I chose to turn back the clock and place these girls through multiple decades of the 50s, 70s, 80s, and present (at that time 2010). In the present images I asked they dress as they would day to day and you can see how they are as individuals yet the closeness is effortless and candid between them.
