The Archetypal Queen is standing on her own, anytime, anywhere. Barbara Celjska, the inspiration behind my collection, was involved in alchemy in the 15th century, and only to her known reasons, was dressed exclusively in black, spoke seven languages and was actively engaged in politics. The queen of today’s dress in designer’s sweatshirt for a gala event, stands behind her own truth even if it’s unbearable for other,s and she proudly shows her “mistakes” without trying to achieve an ideal that does not exist. She knows her inner kingdom, her lover, her mother, the wise woman and the warrior, both the shadow and the bright of self and she is consciously using them. She is real, human and grounded, but at the same time she has the miraculous power to turn the lead into gold.
