The Serpentine Dancer Collection

A portion of sales will be donated to The Women's Film Preservation Fund grant.

An exclusive line created & designed inspired by a visionary artist name Loie Fuller. Fuller forged an innovative dance form by crafting mesmerizing, multimedia spectacles out of fabric, motion, lighting and image.

Almost every important movie pioneer (such as the Skladanowsky brothers, Dickson for Edison Manifacturing Company, Lumiere brothers, Alice Guy Blaché... etc.. ) seems to have chosen the Serpentine Dance as an interesting subject for one or more films.

Unfortunately none of the surviving films seem to contain a performance by the original dancer / choreographer Loie Fuller (despite some of them carrying her name in the title or otherwise crediting her as the dancer). Loie Fuller was a pioneer of modern dance and of theatrical lightning effects. She developed this dance in 1891 and combined her choreography with silk costumes illuminated by multi-colored lighting of her own design.

 

In several of the Serpentine Dance movies her special colored lighting effects have been translated into fascinating hand-colored effects. Fuller also had a successful Fire Dance of which elements are often incorporated in Serpentine Dance performances, which were also often referred to as Butterfly Dance.

This collection was inspired by the spirit of The Serpentine Dance. I designed this collection fueled by my passion of film and the arts, along with me passion of history in film industry and an advocation for Women in the Film & Television Industry.

 

The fabric is graced with the ornate designs of women in various poses of the dance surrounded by floral embellishments.

 

The Serpentine Dancer Collection is a symbol of power, strength, creativity, and ingenuity.

It pays honor to women and to a craft of artistry.

A portion of sales will be donated to The Women's Film Preservation Fund grant.

The WFPF is the only program in the world dedicated to preserving the cultural legacy of women in the industry through preserving films made by women. It was founded in 1995 by New York Women In Film & Television in conjunction with the Museum of Modern Art.
