- deutscher text am ende des artikels -
whenever a set of photographies showing gudrun sjöden’s latest collection is published, i immediately start looking for pictures with ingmari lamy in them. among all the strong, inspiring and beautiful women, she has the most personality and seems to be very comfortable in her own skin (the blessings of age – i’m looking forward to it, too).
she also runs her own blog where she writes about her experiences as a model. she introduces friends, projects, presents after-show-pictures, but most of all, her short, open minded and simply happy notes add quite a spiritual, but authentic approach to the rather superficial world of fashion if you withdraw the factor of art. you can see her optimism in pictures of her, and she also dares to express some vulnerability.
well, i really don’t like that 99% of models look the same, resulting in a lack of diversity. gudrun sjöden doesn’t do that and i am thankful for it. in addition, i find ”appropriate dress codes for certain ages” ridiculous. clothes are about personality, and personality can only be achieved by free choice and not by compliance to rules other people have set up. to me, style is one of many possibilities to develop and share one’s personality (it is a skill that ingmari has obviously mastered – as well as designer gudrun sjöden herself). if you dress in accordance to your personality, you will always look appropriate.
in the future, i absolutely see myself as a shaman / herb woman / gardener – a personality that totally includes clothing from gudrun sjöden. as my wild flower and bee-friendly garden will need more time to grow, i will slowly grow into all of gudrun’s clothes. right now, i wear some of her pieces, but i chose them for being more urban and dynamic – a look that reflects aspects of my personality at this point.i’ll report about my diy projects as well as my gudrun sjöden clothes later this month! stay tuned~ a small preview:
And isn`t she really beautiful, strong and powerful! I can really see her as a shamanic woman teaching other women about the beauty and gifts of mother earth and themselves.
Some more reflections on your own Beauty and how deeply we see it ourselves…or not.
