In May 2019 wonderful costume designer Firefly Path and I traveled to France and explored the castles of the Loire Valley.
Every chateau was straight out of a fairy tale. I felt a bit odd wearing regular clothing. These type of places demand dramatic gowns! Unfortunately traveling with multiple princess gowns can be a bit of a hassle, so I decided to design the next best thing - pieces of fantasy jewelry!
While in Paris, we were very lucky to go to the Musée de Cluny to view the unbelievable unicorn tapestries.
With the tapestries and chateaus rattling around in my head, I set off to design the Legend Collection.
Here are some of the images that helped me along with my inspiration.
