Chapter 1: Vision

Autumn Winter 2017 / 2018

Queen to come

Silk satin overlaid with silk organza embroidered with Swarovski crystals, sequins, and freshwater pearls.

“One day, a very wicked hobgoblin invented a mirror with a peculiarity, that every good and pretty thing reflected in it shrank away to almost nothing… The most beautiful landscapes reflected in it looked like boiled spinach, and the best people became hideous, or else they were upside down and had no bodies. Their faces were distorted beyond recognition, and if they had even one freckle it appeared to spread all over the nose and mouth. The demon thought this immensely amusing… He and his fellow demons even wanted to fly up to heaven with it to mock the angels; but the higher they flew, the more it grinned, so much so that they could hardly hold it, and at last it slipped out of their hands and fell to the earth, shivered into hundreds of millions and billions of bits. Even then it did more harm than ever. Some of these bits were not as big as a grain of sand, and these flew about all over the world, getting into people’s eyes, and, once in, they stuck there, and distorted everything they looked at, or made them see everything that was amiss… Some people even got a bit of the glass into their hearts, and that was terrible, for the heart became like a lump of ice.” (Source)
