There has always been something tough about the asethetic of North American fashion, versus that of the elegance with which European fashion is conveyed. Even in our most sophisticated moments there is still this undertone of grit.

It goes to show you that fashion is so much more then the clothes that you choose to wear. It is also about attitude, culture, self-worth, creativity, social status, and a freedom of expression that is more often then not inextricably linked to where you have grown up and what you have internalized on a psychological level.

It is living art made beautiful by what you choose to say with it, in attitude and in style. -tM

Moments of Destruction

I remember the ritual of breaking in my point shoes. Collectively they were such proud moments for me. I am not certain as to why, perhaps because I was good at the entire operation and dissection of it all.

I think every dancer, athlete, performer, chef, painter, or innovator, has a ritual to break-in their shoes or tools with which they create. They become an extension of your unique ability to create and give back to yourself and to the world. -tM

The Deepest Desire


We spend so much time consuming these days that now more then ever it is important for the soul to create.

It is necessary to give birth to something, if not a child, a piece of art, a song, a meal; there is a divine connection that is made through creation. We are most at peace when we foster something into existence. I think it is because as we step into ourselves we also step into our truth, and as we toil with our hands, our minds are set free.

Go within to not go without. -tM
