I purchased this skirt previously in black and loved it so much, I had to get another one in off white. They are really adorable over leggings and work well when layering with other skirts. The material is super soft too. This is a great purchase!

About

Dance Every Step of The Way

When many things in my life began to disintegrate and fall apart, I made a decision - or rather I sent out a very strong desire into the universe - that I wanted my life to become surrounded by, steeped in, determined by dance.

Dance being my absolutely favourite thing to do.

So slowly, whilst still designing and wholesaling women's fashion, I began to make a few costume pieces, as I couldn't find much I would wear myself amongst the belly dance designs I saw around (this was before I discovered Etsy, obviously!)

I had had a wholesale business for 10 years and eventually a boutique here in Bali. What a struggle... The endless demand for faster, cheaper, better. But faster and cheaper does not a better item make...

I have always loved to dance, but it was more of a dance floor "get yo' groove on" thing rather than anything structured UNTIL that beautiful, unknown belly dancer in a dreary tourist show in Turkey. After the handkerchief wavers had finally left the stage, she suddenly appeared from the shadows, voluptuous, shimmering - and shimmying! My jaw hit the floor. I want to be able to do THAT.

That was it! I had never seen someone express the music so accurately, beautifully, femininely...

Until I discovered the grace and beauty of Classical Indian Odissi Dance and the divine inspiration embodied in my Guru Colleena Shakti. Now my heart has been broken open by Odissi and I will truly never be the same again. Sounds a bit pretentious I know - but it's true!

Designing costumes is a way to be constantly immersed in the element of dance. I get to indulge my inner princess and play with sparkly pretties, I am developing a world wide network of dance sisters and I have the perfect excuse to have the music loud because it's all about the music!

So I am pursuing a dance based life - making costumes, teaching a little and organising dance retreats. Everything is still budding and blossoming, and I'm not quite there yet but I guess it's all about the journey isn't it, and I will dance every step of the way.
