Stonehart jewelry and fangs were featured in the latest Selkie show, LUCY, the premiere of their FW 23 collection. The show was a haunting and immersive experience, allowing the audience to be voyeurs in the world of ethereal vampires drifting through the victorian homes of Heritage Square Museum.
The models, wearing dramatic ruffled Selkie gowns and Stonehart Fangs, were impeccably in character. Some eerily roamed the halls, some sat looking like broken dolls in the historic arm chairs, and some hissed at anyone that passed by, sometimes startling the audience.
The show was a work of art, another success of Kimberley Gordon, Selkie founder and creative director, who continues to push the boundaries of art in fashion and its culture.
Kimberley is one of my closest friends and I've had the privilege of witnessing her brilliance and creative journey up close since freshmen year of high school. Throughout our friendship, she has never failed to find the romance in any situation we found ourselves in. When we were teenagers, we were always into some creative project or crafting, whether it was at home make-overs or making new clothes out of old clothes. Kimberley, even then, was putting ruffles (or faux fur) on everything, usually taking the shape of a new pair of leg warmers for the weekend.
Now as we are adults, lucky enough to be working in this incredible space where fashion meets fantasy, I still feel like we are just crafting away. The night before the Lucy show we were back at her craft table, designing some last minute ideas for custom fangs for the show. Some of our best ideas often come to us in the moments before a show.
I can't wait to see how Kimberley will outdo herself next, and feel so honored to be a part of her endless magic.
