While I was successfully working with businesses from finance to manufacturing over the last two decades, and earning a mid-career MBA, fashion design has always been my secret passion. When my business projects slowed down in 2014, and I was faced with a diagnosis of breast cancer, I decided to follow my passion. Combining my business acumen with my natural instinct for color and love for beautiful fabric, I created a luxury line of finely tailored outerwear for active women. Raised in Denver, CO, I am a fan of the great outdoors, my fluid pieces work as well in urban environments as in mountain resorts. They keep you warm and cozy, but make you feel “creativity stylish.”
Ed, my beloved partner for many years, was also engaged in every aspect of my fashion business. When he suddenly died in mid-2018, I was shattered by grief and grasping for strength. Again, I found comfort by surrounding myself with color and fabric and creating my Spiritual Silks scarf collection.
A vivid reminder of the power of color and its affect on the happiness and health of the human spirit, the Spiritual Silks collection is instilled with the theme of the heart in each design, as it is the heart that holds all of one’s truths.
Truly moved by the intense color and beautiful lights in the inspiring works of Bereniche Aguiar, it is my goal to combine art and fabrics to evoke the powers of healing through color, stimulating the realization of one’s creative potential.
This breathtaking collection is comprised of seven intricately designed and handmade silk scarves that correlate with the individual elements of the Chakra System. This unique structure represents the wheels of energy throughout the body, corresponding to various nerve centers that, when blocked, can produce feelings of misalignment mentally, emotionally, physically and spiritually. Each chakra is denoted by a specific function, characteristic and color, all illustrated in the Spiritual Silks collection.
