"Beauty, magic, transformation. What I create is beauty.
The alchemy of beauty is magical and magic has the ability to transform." ~Sue Wong
Are you ready for art history? This editorial embodies the 1920's, with a romantic and intriguing tour through The Mark Twain House. When I found this gorgeous 1920's blue velvet dress last year, I bought it because I knew I would find the perfect location and story for this piece someday. Not long after, I found another treasure, a Sue Wong floral dress that embodied the 1920's flapper. Emily was the perfect woman to fit into these lovely pieces of romantic history and together we reawakened the beautiful, historic past.I can relate to Sue Wong's philosophy. I am someone who is born to create. I have a love for art, fashion and history.
"I'm someone who defines herself through her creativity. My fashion creations are visual creations of art. Creativity is something that emanates deeply from within the soul and is drawn from spirit essences. If I couldn't create, I would be terribly, terribly unhappy."
"Clothes do not merely make the man...clothes are the man."
Perhaps he was known best for the books, "The Adventures of Tom Sawyer" and "The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn." He was a man who traveled the world and asked controversial questions. The Mark Twain House is an icon that is worth preserving. If you would like to learn more about Hartford's history, please visit. There are so many wonderful events happening at The Mark Twain House and Museum. Special thanks for allowing me to create this fashion editorial to make my dreams come true.
