“She found her elixir of life and lived through the ages.”
Hussein Bazaza’s Fall 2016 collection tells the story of alchemy, medieval chemical science and philosophy. Yes, we agree its not usually the type of themes you’d expect to see in a fashion collection but it is for this reason we just can’t get enough of all the pieces.
Perhaps it’s our ongoing desire to find the answers to all those unanswerable questions like where can we discover a universal cure for disease? How can we achieve immortality? and How can we transform ordinary metals into gold? – the basis to the alchemy ideology.
And Sophia The Alchemist was able to find her elixir to life – something that was going to make her happy but more importantly something she believed in, and this everything!
