scars can be beautiful

love at first sight

Sometimes I wonder about the idea of love at first sight. I’ve had a few occasions—three that I can recall at this moment—where I felt a definite spark and immediate attraction to someone I had just met. But I wouldn’t call it love at first sight. It was just that something that’s hard to explain. You find the person attractive and suddenly feel like a 15 year old with a crush that can’t stutter a syllable out when you’re around him. You end up thinking about him, but most likely do nothing about it; at least that’s what I did in those three instances.

There is more to love, at least it seems so to me, than an instant attraction. Or maybe I’m wrong. But love in the long run is an intellectualized attraction. There are physical and hormonal things, but in the end what keeps it going is the two people’s ability to communicate and make each other laugh. Great sex also helps.

But I guess that it all boils down to how you define love. Within my definition, love at first sight is impossible, because love is something that grows over many many years. But sometimes I do wonder about those people that say they saw one another and they just knew, and they have been together for 50 years. Maybe it’s a combination of things.

Fall 2006 Claire Collection

I am currently working on my couture fall 2006 hat collection, the Claire Collection, made of wool felts. The idea stemmed from a conversation I had with a woman named Claire, and therefore the name of the collection. It is inspired by Bauhaus, punk, past hat fashions, hats in the movie Mrs. Henderson Presents, sculpture, and architecture. Each hat is hand formed (out of wool), so each is unique.
