Put the Needle on the Record by Mayra Stearns
“I believe that music is the ultimate time travel machine. A song or sound has the ability to transport you to the first moment you heard it. I have chosen to reflect this by incorporating the different ways we’ve experienced its beauty. I see the music in the patterns of the doilies from a bygone era. The dress, music sheet bustle, cloth bustle and head piece are able to be worn separately.”
“I feel that we are born to be creators and not merely consumers. Beauty is everywhere and it is up to us to see it and be inspired by it. Whatever I create must be absolutely comfortable to wear. My muse is my daughter. She would wear clothes inside out to avoid the sensations of the seams, so I taught myself to sew to make her comfortable and beautiful clothes.”
