An in-flight movie purchase starring my ‘dream’ client Jennifer Lawrence; the soothing and supportive words of strength offered by a close friend, and the quest of a tennis icon and her historical season, are the musings behind my Fall fashion motif. A perfect storm of inspiration ignited by one name…Serena
The moniker Serena denotes strength, beauty, balance, the nurturing fortitude of a woman, all while maintaining a marriage between femininity and masculinity of spirit.
Jennifer Lawrence’s character in the film Serena was bold and brash, but captivating; unapologetic and malicious, while still maintaining an air of vulnerability. Serena Hedison, a close friend and confidant, is what I like to call BeautyCool. She is quick-witted and astute, self-aware, open, and present. She also happens to be, gorgeous with effortless glamourous hair! And then, there is Serena Williams, the epitome of dominance and strength, tenacity and confidence, the embodiment of allure…and that specimen of a body! Her competition is her own being.
In the film, costume designer Signe Sejlund styled the character Serena in varying textures and shades of olive green, layered and complimented with hints of the softest blush, to an intense fuchsia. The wardrobe was strong and soft, bold and subdued, x and y… personified by a name, SERENA.
