~an eccentric woman with extraordinarily memorable, often misunderstood but unmistakably distinctive style.

"It is my intent to showcase that which I consider wearable art.
Clothing that is whimsical, dramatic, avant-garde and on the
cutting edge of design - as seen through my eyes.
Brilliance and madness are interchangeable.
This is my style inspiration. I invite you into my world."

A visual trip in fashion to the country of Tibet. Inspired by Tibetan culture and landscape
Michael Ponddaag selects colorful designs with dramatic silhouettes.

What a stunning cover photo... beautiful location, beautiful clothing, beautiful model.
Designs ~ Didi Budiardjo-House of Irsan-Sofie Design-Mango

I must say that the apparel in this photo that I am the most taken by
is that worn by dog and yak!

The traditional Tibetan jewelry is insanely wonderful. Dress by Sofie Design.

What a brilliant juxtaposition of style and background. Fabulous pairing of headpiece and tulle.

Coat - House of Irsan

Shawl in Tibetan orange -Bin House
Take note of the astonishing art of hairdressing by Qiqi Franky.
In each and every photograph the hair is like intricate sculpture... BRAVO!

What a story this old man's face tells and what great fortune to clasp his hand...

This amalgamation takes my breath away. Tibetan gypsy.

The purple coat - the fabric of the skirt... My heart be still....
Yak Yak Yak... I love you mighty beast and your outfit becomes you.

Divine crown of braided hair

I die...

I love Zuzanna's hairstyle with it's multi-textured presentation; crimped, curled and braided...
which mimics her jacket's combination of short and long, both curled and straight fur.
Soft and cozy...

Continuing on with a multitude of textures this combines a most playful knit wrap finished off with large pom-poms over a fringe knit sweater and voluminous tulle petticoat skirt. ~ Oh, how I love a tutu ~ And to punctuate the outfit a sassy pair of ankle boots.

Heavy knits paired with a delicate blue tulle ballerina skirt.

What lovely workmanship has been put into this knit wrap.

Layers yet again...

Cover girl Lara Bingle for "Oyster #91". Shot by Steven Ward and Georges Antoni.

A bondage neck piece leashes a dress that resembles 1950's foundation garments. Superb!

Stunning suit. Ah... the beauty of drag.

Patent leather jacket quilted and corseted at the waist and a double zippered front. Beautifully tailored and sexy as hell.

Metal breast plate and zippered leggings ...


Styled by Imogene Barron.

As this cold winter wears on I felt a need for new inspiration in piling on
every thing I own just to keep warm... all the while looking fab.

Layer upon layer of designer wear...
Jean Paul Gaultier, Gucci, DG, Chanel Max Mara, Calzedonia

I love this look, gray on gray on black on hounds tooth with a pop of red.

Wear your bear as hair

Beautiful! Ski slope ready.

The last time I heard "Fur Pants" mentioned it involved a very, very hairy young man.
I'm just sayin.
