Marchesa Luisa Casati
astonished society by parading around with her two cheetah and wearing live snakes as jewellery. She held some of the most legendary costume parties in history.

i want a pet cheetah please







"Age cannot wither her, nor custom stale her infinite variety"

She fled to London from a £25 million debt and ended her days in relative poverty- she was caught rummaging bins to find feathers to decorate her hair. MY kinda lady. She died in 1957 and was buried wearing leopard skins and false eyelashes.

RA: ART FASHION IDENTITY




Went to this exhibition at the RA yesterday some of the pieces were cool like this spiky dress which was made from thousands of pins sticking out of the leather garment. literally love this SO much. i want to make myself one but maybe a mini version, think the length of this one might be slightly unpractical. YES.  


and this folded up piece of reflective heaven

I loved this McQueen piece (LEFT) reminded me a bit of Erdem S/S11(RIGHT) a prettier more friendly version though.
