Sucker Punch Fashion Video

reality is a prison. imagination is your escape. an escape to whatever is holding you back. & the power is within YOU - the power of the mind.

i wanted this to break away from traditional Youtube fashion videos consisting of outfits showcased in full-body fashion with short clips and voice overs. i wanted this to speak and tell a story as the the movie, Sucker Punch, spoke to me, that imagination IS your escape. & the power is within YOU. well, my reality isn't as harsh as a prison, locked up in chains & all, but at times when i am in need of a way out from all the darkness trying to take over me, i run to the light, i pray to God, and turn to my outlet - my imagination. art has that kind of connection and i wanted to make my next fashion video to present that. because personally, imagination IS my escape from my earthly distractions. and to have a deep connection to this film is what made me pursue a virtual fashion video in Sucker Punch kick-ass style!

Dear John Galliano,


am i right or am i right?
i am so inspired right now. no words can express the feeling of this burning inspiration i've got going. i'm casting ideas just after watching this show of sensuality & i cannot wait to brainstorm the rest of this thing i got going in my head! i should've caught this earlier...but i'm catching up on my runway shenanigans.

here's two other of his masterpieces:

no one does fashion shows like John Galliano.
okay...Alexander McQueen, JCDC, Viktor & Rolf, Chanel, & Christian Dior are cool too, BUT JOHN GALLIANO FREAKIN SQUIRTS THE LIVING JIZZ OUT OF ME!


okay. you've read enough.
must. sleep. & dream of walking in one of his shows...& also dream of bringing my imagination into virtual fashion shows inspired by the one and only.
