In every Goddess we see Genius.

” Diamonds get the label of diamond because of its everlasting ability and its dominance over every other gemstone in the world. It’s no fluke that a diamond is called a diamond.
It doesn’t matter that a diamond is made up of pure carbon (element C). Diamond stands for much more than just a rock from the earth’s mantle. It stands for the endurance of time, the ultimate beauty of nature and the everlasting love and devotion and happiness it brings.
Diamond’s mystic charm and supernatural powers have driven man for thousands of years to wear it for protection, purification and intrigue. “

I would like to elaborate on this understated topic for a moment. To create genius, one must have the mind that elaborately races rapid thoughts all day long. With new ideas, new inventions. The creativity must be endless with an unbound supply of opportunity for these creative endeavors. I had just watched a podcast on Karl Lagerfeld who stated- from a quote said back in 1860- ” What is going on in the world , but today who can believe in god , there is no answer. Absorb but who did the good things , The Genius.” What I take from this, is that to be a genius or a prodigy, one must acquire a certain amount of experience and knowledge that takes everything to a philosophical level. The reason, many people in the world are so pessimistic, the world is terrible these days and even with all of this knowledge, would you say some people turn there backs on it and only pretend to be naive? I would… because they don’t want to deal with struggle, hardship and temperament. For those that don’t believe in a god to your own understanding- is that god or your higher power, may have stated that the world was going to end in 2012 on the mayan calendar. However, this did not happen, the world is beginning again. After so much disaster and devastation to so many countries and cities in the US, how are we supposed to sit back and watch all of this happen. Well, don’t become involved in your charitable causes. Anyway getting back to my philosophical theory is that if you are not obtaining enough knowledge to intuitively feel or think something is going to happen to you before death, then you weren’t meant to die. Usually before someone dies, they are fully aware that it is coming, they get some sort of sensation that comes over them. Just like when you reach enlightenment, nothing scares you anymore because you are fully aware of how to handle each and every situation as it comes. As for natural disaster, I do believe god to my understanding preconceived these notions, the mayans picked up on it but not in the right way. What god to my understanding was/is really trying to do, is bring the world together, to create more love for each other. To not let your life pass you by, it could be shorter then you believe it to be. We are never guaranteed a tomorrow. If you were fully aware of your death happening tomorrow- Would you go out and live every last dream of yours today? You wouldn’t because you possibly wouldn’t be able to do it all in a 24 hour span. However, if you live your dreams day after day, you would be satisfied by the time you died because you would have known you changed human kind in some aspect or another. Lived out exactly what and when you wanted, and never regretted a single second of life because those hard times shaped who you are today! How will you make your lasting impressions on earth? Goddesses in training, think long and hard and just set out for a journey you wont regret. I will end with a quote from Oprah Winfrey who says “When there is no struggle, There is no Strength.” And Bruce Almighty hardships have definitely shaped me to become fearless. #OprahWinfreyForPresident2020

Enough is Enough, Time for serious change in Fashion my earthly Goddesses- time to shout it to the Whole Wide World? You ready?

This Letter, just gave me wonderful ideas about how to change the fashion industry so now… before revealing the letter, it is to be said that fashion needs a new head of house in town, chill out, make it fun, make it what it used to be… and the only person who can do that, would be me of course. So shouting out to the whole world… its time for a game changer, GAME OVER. #BEGINAGAIN

Fashion Industry: you are breaking the creatives that have created you.

Dear Fashion Industry,

“I know you don’t know me, but I’ve been reporting on your inner workings for the better part of a decade. It hardly seems fair that I know you so well and you hardly know me at all, so, in the words of Mick Jagger, please allow me to introduce myself.”

“When I was a little girl, I knew less than nothing about fashion. I wore my sister’s hand-me-downs and dirtied them in the forests and creeks of North Carolina. I lived wild as the wind, and by most measures, was a very, very late bloomer. My interest in fashion occurred when a lightning bolt flung by Alexander McQueen electrified my entire body the first time I laid eyes on his controversial Fall/Winter 1999 collection which I stumbled across by accident when researching Scotland’s history for a school paper. Until that moment, I never understood that fashion had a purpose beyond just cool clothes that made you fit in with cool people. I wasn’t cool growing up. I was a real, earnest, nerd girl before nerds were cool and accepted by the mainstream. I slept on Star Wars pillowcases and had my nose stuck in books so often that I regularly careened into walls because I insisted on walking and reading at the same time. I was smart in a way that I didn’t know was a threat to others until I was tortured for it regularly at school, but I quickly learned how to hide my passions and interests out of a desperate need to protect myself from the cruelty of ignorance.”

“I was also mocked and belittled for how I looked. I hit puberty like you hit your funny bone — so awkwardly and uncomfortably that it seemed like the painful tingle of it would never end. I’ll never forget the time I was with the 7th grade softball team in Anne Smith’s room (she was the coolest girl in school), and Becky White (she was the meanest girl in school) suddenly proposed that everyone “who could fill a bra” should go into Anne’s walk-in closet to try on clothes. She pointedly looked at me when she said it, so I sat red-faced in humiliated silence by myself on the bed while they all filed in and giggled behind a closed closet door. Before McQueen rescued me from my bitterness, I always thought fashion was to be found behind a door marked “Grace: Do Not Enter.””

“McQueen showed me that fashion was an art form, the most precious one possible because its purpose was to adorn and decorate the human body, to elevate it to a new level where the wearer could become anything, could dream of a better self and become it. It was acceptance of who you are at the deepest level, but it also provided a way to improve yourself in any way that you saw fit. It turns out, fashion and I would become innately intertwined to the point where it became my life’s work explaining it and celebrating it.”

“Fashion’s innate humanism is what drew me to it, but like every good and beautiful thing I’ve grown to love, I soon found it had a dark side. Because fashion is a consumer product, it is driven by the typical supply-and-demand, capitalist model. The problem is, this economic model is insatiable and greedy.”

“Because fashion is a consumer product, it is driven by the typical supply-and-demand, capitalist model. The problem is, this economic model is insatiable and greedy.”

“I can’t fathom why any single person would need a million or a billion dollars, but that’s the value that capitalism proposes: wealth and prosperity over everything. Sure, it would be nice to be rich, but I’ve never been motivated by money, so the idea of bottomless wealth genuinely baffles and upsets me. Before the 1970s, fashion houses were owned and commodified by single entities, but in the modern era they are predominantly owned and operated by luxury conglomerates like LVMH, PPR, and Kering. For the creative, beautiful, purposeful side of fashion, this is a very, very bad thing. For the investor, it is a very, very good thing.”

“Roughly around the same time that multi-national conglomerates became majority stakeholders in fashion brands we witnessed the birth of the celebrity designer, and a few years later, the birth of the super model. With both came a tidal wave of image-based marketing that led to the triumph of desire-based merchandising, which is where trends were born. This, in turn, led to the accelerated pace of fashion seasons. Society was sucked into the glamorous spectacle proposed by you, Fashion Industry, and we’ve been getting sick on these poisoned ideals ever since. Why is it that we now consume clothing at the same rate that we buy groceries? If you talk to anyone from an older generation, they’ll tell you of the days when a shoe purchase was made in deliberate, considered fashion because those were the shoes they would be wearing for years to come. It’s not just fast fashion that is to blame, because if you look at the facts and figures of a major luxury brands quarterly earnings and notice any sort of dip, what swiftly seems to follow is the dismissal of the brand head. The message is clear: produce profitable merchandise or get out.”

“Which brings me to why I’m writing this letter: I just learned of the heartbreaking fact that my beloved Alber Elbaz is leaving Lanvin after 14 years of service, and this is on the heels of the earth-shattering news that Raf Simons has departed from Dior. These are two men who have made fashion that matters. I’ve lived through these moments many times before, like when Nicolas Ghesquière left Balenciaga (I cried), when Marc Jacobs left Louis Vuitton, when McQueen committed suicide (I still cry), and the list goes on ad infinitum.”

“Fashion Industry: you are breaking the creatives that have created you.”

“The free market capitalist economic model is deeply flawed, and trickle down economic theory is a myth. Even though we’ve been falsely led to believe it’s the only system that works, it has revealed itself in the modern era to be collapsing in on itself like a black hole. The rich get richer, the poor get poorer, the middle class is disappearing, and the environment is slowly going the way of the buffalo. And every country that reaches the top, topples swiftly back down again. Just look at the market crash in the US in 2008, and what happened in China just over the summer. Deregulation, privatization, cronyism, bought-and-sold elections, it’s all as bad as the dystopian novelists warned us it would be.”

“When fashion is possessed by a corporation, it is beholden to corporate interest, which has nothing but the bottom line in mind. With that comes insane pressures to perform; to yield increasing profits every single quarter. Creative designers are suffering tremendously because of this, and while some are unceremoniously ousted due to poor shareholder returns, others, like Simons, are leaving with their dignity intact, they’re choosing to say “enough is enough.””

(Except Karl Lagerfeld, but he’s a total and complete anomaly in his field — in the entire known universe for that matter.)

“There is a better way to approach fashion business than by appointing figureheads and then wringing every atomic drop of creativity out of them and their teams until they are used up and useless.”

“Call me a hopeless romantic or a naive idealist, but I refuse to believe fashion ISN’T that pure, essential thing I first fell in love with, the thing that currently gives my life color, purpose, and joy whenever I am able to experience it in its true, unmolested form. Although there is no way to excoriate fashion from the crooked claws of business, there is a better way forward than this. There is a better way to approach fashion business than by appointing figureheads and then wringing every atomic drop of creativity out of them and their teams until they are used up and useless. People are not commodities. I am heartbroken to bear witness to the devaluation of creativity in the most creative field in human history. These departures should tell you that the system is broken. I am so angry to see the creative field I love be destroyed by greed. For that reason, I stand with every designer who says “enough is enough.” I don’t know the way forward, but I know there is one, and I won’t rest until I figure it out and then shout the answer to the whole wide world.”
