STREGA FASHION MANIFEST

shortcuttothestars:

shortcuttothestars:

- Strega means witch, and that theme is therefore the center of the fashion

- there are no other rules

- there are no established color schemes

- inspiration is taken from fairytales, folklore and myth, all things magical and witchy

- Inspiration is drawn from goth, boho, mori and whatever else you prefer

- it is different from mori in that it doesn’t have any ties to japan or japanese street fashion

- it is different from goth in that it has no inherent ties to goth culture or music

- NO ONE can demand to know what strega is or exclude anyone from the fashion or tag! Strega is the witch inside us, coming out through our clothing.

Feel free to add anything as long as it doesn’t go against these! :) The tag is ‘strega fashion’

It is so amazing to wake up and see the notes and support on this! Thank you, all of you <3

The V&amp;A says: Pattens were worn to lift the shoe out of the dirt and damp. Being somewhat heavy and clumsy, they were mainly used by working-class or country women.
These pattens, however, have pointed toes to fit a fashionable woman’s shoe and a depression at the back where a small heel could sit. The shoe would have been fastened into the patten by means of ribbon-laced latchets. All this, and the fact that the latchets are covered in velvet, suggests that the patterns were worn by someone of considerable wealth.

Julie Lebrun is amazing as a person and an artist. she deserved better men in her life.
