The New Woman

There was something warrior about the clothing at the LeLutka ULTRA fashion show, a strength and virility. She transformed traditionally masculine icons into a New Woman: a powerful woman. A woman that divines and wields something that we cannot touch or take away, thus liberating her from her counterpart.

You may see LeLutka as another Second Life high end shop, but I see it as a form of art. Each work is a composition of color, texture, presence and composition. It simulates your senses and compels you to wonder. Art is such an amazing word because it allows for so much to happen. Call me sentimental, but I love the idea of manifesting a new version of you.

LeLutka’s greatest inspiration for the show was Edgar Allan Poe. I have only studied a few of his works, but there is a mark left by him over this line of clothing. Poe loved the mysterious woman, like a young girl loves a unicorn. She is magical, mystical, untouched and pure, hard, and dangerously beautiful.

I am just extrapolating here…. Maybe the roles we take on ourselves and throw at each other make us righteous and thick with prejudice. Maybe I, WE, should know and do better. The Warrior should meet the Unicorn and create something higher, humble and with humanity.

The New Woman: Everything she is, she will be and where she has been….

All this from a fashion show…it was better than sex.
