Designs by Ananda Xenia Shakti her story
For as long as i can remember women and men have stopped me on the streets, gone out of their ways to get my attentions, knocked on restaurant windows etc.. all to tell me how beautiful I look in the chosen garment of that day. It is always with huge smiles on their faces, not with the intimidation or jealousy that can be so common in those areas. Soon i came i understand that how i dressed was not only joyful for me, it was also joyful for others to witness. You could see in their eyes that this might be the bright moment of a dreary day or a spark being lite that reminded them that life is here to be Celebrated!, Ornamented! Full of Joy and the Permission to explore and express Beauty.
Woman would regularly ask me dress them or to take them shopping so they could buy the clothes i was wearing. I am happy to say the different moods of expressive clothing that have flowed through me have influences many peoples style in joyful way.
When i went to Paris for the first time it was a turning point for me in my flare for creative style expression. I was in the fashion capitol of the world ! and people were still stopping me on the street calling out “Mademoiselle Manifique” in boisterous voices and arms raised and looks of astonishment and joy on their faces . It was so delightful to celebrate the art of beauty together. And honestly what i was wearing was never costly, its not my thing to pay super high prices for clothing, but i knew how to ” see ” things in a different way and how to put things together in creative ways.
The turning point for creating ‘I am Love’ designs came when i was sitting in a cafe in Paris having lunch. There was a woman siting with friends across the restaurant. She was handicapped, in a wheelchair, and could barely talk. I guess she must had suffered a stroke. She looked at me a few times and i smiled at her. Then she stood up, she said something to her friends then she started heading towards me. Truthfully she could barely walk, it took quiet some time for her to reach me, each step was a complete struggle and she held on to the tables and chairs as she passed them. I didn’t know what was going on, why she was coming over, or what she wanted and i was praying I would have the compassion and grace to communicate with her and handle what ever her needs were with full love.
When she arrived at my table she pointed to my arms of bracelets and touched them with her one good but asking arm, and then to everything i was wearing and to my face and said in her laboured speech “Tres Belle”, “Tres Belle”, “Tres Tres Belle”, and kept saying if over and over moving her head side to side to further emphasize he appreciation. I took her hand and thanked her so much and she said it again as she turned and slowly struggled her way back to her wheel chair and when she sat down she looked and smiled. Tears were streaming down my cheeks that i was trying to hide. What had compelled her to come out of her wheelchair and struggle so hard to get me to me to tell me i was very beautiful and what i was wearing was very beautiful. What was she seeing? i was touched in a very deep part of my soul, It had to be the glory of the feminine and the celebration of romance that moved her across the room. And I can totally relate as is the way my soul loves to dance with Creation and to express style in ways that ornament that mood.
It was this experience that made me consider designing the ‘She Dress’. When the Divine Feminine in her crippled form struggled so hard to show me Her appreciation and joy, i knew it was important to find a way to share this joy with woman around the world wishing to celebrate the Feminine, Beauty and Romance.
My next big inspiration came when my dear friend took me to the home base of an organization in Northern India called Guria India. Guria is a haven for children of prostitutes to protect them from second generation human trafficking and a complete inspiration for taking action based in pure love. We sat for a couple hours hearing the founders story, why he opened the centre and his honest talk about the successes and the children that go back and into the business. I could of sat all day and listened to him. He is so authentic in his service. Once we left, i got the idea create the ‘She Dress’ to celebrate the feminine impulse and to donate some of the proceeds to celebrate the feminine even further by helping to prevent second generation human trafficking. Please go to their web site and you will read all about this wonderful incentive. guriaindia.org I have so much respect for this organization. They do not take government funding so that they can work freely and creatively in the ways they know to be most successful in rescuing and offering shelter and education for the children and their mothers if they wish to leave the business.
This is a little of my journey with Love, which is Beauty, which is God. I hope it inspires you and your dreams of Love and Beauty and the Glory of the Feminine flow freely from you inspiring your own eyes and hearts and all those you touch.
