Once upon a time our festival muse was the girl strutting through the crowd, ankle deep in mud, skirt hitched high and triple A lanyard swinging around her neck… She layered her festival garb, (tassels, tie-dye, crochet) and danced like no one was watching, when really, everyone was watching… but today – our festival muse may roam a little closer to home… Perhaps she’s the girl laying on her couch in her threadbare, vintage rocker tee, reading dog eared fashion mags and listening to old Bowie vinyl… perhaps she’s the girl roaming the hinterland, flowing in her lace and tie-dye gown, humming Fleetwood Mac… Today, we’re inspired by festival muses, past and present.
On a steamy late-Summers day, when heavy rain clouds gathered on the tips of the rising hinterland around us, we created our own dreamy festival inspired cabin. We hung festoon lights from an old tour bus, and littered baby cactus around like a archipelago of desert flowers and listened to dirty rock music on a crackling record player.
And our festival garb was too colourful and playful, too textured and cheeky, because that’s how you dress when you’re festival-side… and that day, for all intents and purposes, we were festival-side, but this time, with a side of ‘solitude.’
