Austenmania

 

Vogue published an article back in March about Jane Austen's influence in fashion. Of course I jump right to reading the piece by Laird Borrelli-Persson, because I'm a big Austen fan (note that I didn't say I was her biggest fan cause I'm willing to admit I've only read two of her novels and just got around to watching the 1995 BBC mini series of P & P). 

This article came at a timely manner because I had just finished reading Pride and Prejudice for the second time. And by reading, I mean listening to it on Audible (Rosamund Pike does a splendid job narrating the beloved novel) because sadly, I don't have time to sit and read anymore. Gotta keep my love for reading in my life somehow, right?! Well, I wasn't only reading the famed Austen novel, but I was also I'm watching both the 1995 and 2005 movies as I read (P & P 1995 is on Amazon Prime!). On top of the movie binging and book reading, I was also playing the music on the piano. I'm kind of a nut, I know! It was a lovely two weeks of immersing myself in Austen's world. After reading the Vogue article, I was like, "uh, of course Jane Austen is still relevant and in every creative medium possible!" So I had to finish off my Austen-ploration by doing an illustration of Dean and Dan's Regency-styled gown from the Dsquared2 Fall 2017 RTW collection. 

So I may not be Austen's biggest fan, but I'm probably the nerdiest fan. Well, I'll be off. Probably gonna illustrate more of the Austen inspired gowns from the runway. Peace.
