On June 20, I will be in a part of a fashion show, at the Old National Centre. If everyone could come out & support me, I would absolutely LOVE it. If you cannot come, it would still help me out if you purchased a ticket. The proceeds go to a bigger cause & me potentially doing another show in a bigger city!
If I’ve EVER supported you in the past, now is the time for me. 💞

“Secondo il mito, la vestale Rea Silvia venne fecondata dal dio Marte e partorì due gemelli, Romolo e Remo. “
“..Questa cesta si incagliò sul fiume alle pendici di un colle, dove i gemelli furono trovati da una lupa che si prese cura di loro finché non furono trovati dal pastore Faustolo” 🐺👶🏻👶🏻
Happy #SpiritualSaturday guys! This week we share a little bit about the Darangen epic of the Maranao people of Lake Lanao. The Darangen is an ancient epic song that encompasses a wealth of knowledge of the Maranao people who live in the Lake Lanao region of Mindanao.
Comprising 17 cycles and a total of 72,000 lines, the Darangen celebrates episodes from Maranao history and the tribulations of mythical heroes. In addition to having a compelling narrative content, the epic explores the underlying themes of life and death, courtship, love and politics through symbol, metaphor, irony and satire. It also encodes customary law, standards of social and ethical behaviour, notions of aesthetic beauty, and social values specific to the Maranao.
Meaning literally “to narrate in song”, the Darangen is one of the oldest and longest epic poems in the Philippines and is part of a wider epic culture connected to early Sanskrit traditions extending through most of Mindanao. Though the Darangen has been largely transmitted orally, parts of the epic have been recorded in manuscripts using an ancient writing system based on the Arabic script.
Specialized female and male performers sing the Darangen during wedding celebrations that typically last several nights. Performers must possess a prodigious memory, improvisational skills, poetic imagination, knowledge of customary law and genealogy, a flawless and elegant vocal technique, and the ability to engage an audience during long hours of performance. Music and dance sometimes accompany the chanting.

Whenever I create pieces with hand embroidery, it is a labor of love for me, leaving a piece of myself in a very special garment. 💛
