The ancient Greek god of war, Athena, represents wisdom, courage, art, inspiration, strength and justice.
People often will the Greek god of war and fighting male anger linked together, but female Ares Athena, was coupled to the wisdom, power, justice.
In the strong Greek goddess image as the core, I wish to convey the inherent power of women, with a quiet, elegant, strong and wise power.
From the ancient Greek form of clothing, fabrics and elegant flowing lines are the contours of this series, while as the shoulders, waist side, chest and other locations, the use of relatively stiff fabrics made with three-dimensional structure, simulate similar forms of armor. Through this combination of soft and hard and contrast, I hope to show a sense of power unique fusion of femininity.
They do not need to force yourself to become masculine to show, because they are not just the average soldier, who is the female god of war.
2015 Spring / Summer collection concept:
Athena, an ancient Goddess of War, represent Wisdom, Courage, Inspiration, Art, Strength, and Justice.
As the Greek War Gods are sometimes associated with battle rage, the Female War Goddess Athena, instead, is related to Wisdom, Strength and Justice.
Inspired by this strong image of the Greek Goddess, I would like to convey this inner strength embedded in women that comes with ELEGANCE, SERENITY, STRONG WILL and WISDOM.
Fluid outlines of sheer fabrics drew from ancient Greek costume compose the silhouette of the collection, mixing with structured trimmings on various parts of body which creates armor-like forms. Through the combine and contrast of hard and soft, I want to show a unique toughness out from the femininity.
They do not need to look masculine to be strong, because they are not merely warriors, they are Goddesses of War.
