Henna has been around for centuries and is thought to bring good luck to the wearer. The mystic, glamour and good luck surrounding the ancient form of body art, known as Mehendi has been significant part of wedding tradition in India and the Middle East. Designing the Legskins became a journey into the feminine. The free flowing ever expanding female energy as it embodies birth and creation. Using traditional shapes and placing them in specific areas on the body tells a story of what being a woman can entail. All of our curves and complexities, our softness and our strength. This is my inspiration.
