My inspiration for this collection derived from the archetypes of Carl Jung. In particular: the shadow, the persona and the self. Real pressed flowers are encapsulated in contrasting pleated plastic with the same flowers printed and embroidered onto silks. Each garment forms part of a narrative that represents the human evolution of consciousness that altogether create a glamorous, modern yet functional collection.
JUNGIAN ARCHETYPES/ORIGIN: Jung said archetypes come from the collective unconscious, one of three parts to the psyche. EXPLANATION: Jungian archetypes represent the different aspects of a person's being. EXAMPLE: Firefighters often make use of their hero archetype by marching straight into fires to save lives.
The 12 Common Archetypes - Writers can use these archetypes to create characters... though a word of warning: Don't create characters. Characters are puppets. They're lifeless, and will not better your writing. Create people; people with fears, hopes and, most importantly, flaws. I can't stress this point enough.
Using Jungian Archetypes in your writing... Jung is so valuable. But this chart, while valuable but is also limiting (just like The Hero with the 1000 faces.) Why is the hero only male? Why no wise women and nuturing fathers? It's a starting point. Breakout from the mold.
