Mood & Emotion
The feeling watching the Vulture is Messiah like, more of a celebration of life than a dance of death.
Of all the looks we created in ‘Tales of a Butterfly Collector’, the Vulture is the most free and apparently with no restriction. However, perfect and beautiful and free as she is, the beauty is only skin deep, the vulture has limited vision so only we can appreciate her. We are all the voyeurs watching a private dance, a private moment.
So in fact it is voyeuristic and restrictive just like everything else we do. Can’t seem to get away from it!
The setting for the Vulture’s dance is misty, foggy, cold, icy cold with a Wake of Vultures, perched and in mourning.
On a more personal note, after 30 years working in the fashion industry, The Vulture’s inclusion in our story was a must. We have met a few!
