INSPIRATION: GEOMETRY AND SQUARES

I found I could say things with color and shapes that I couldn’t say any other way—things I had no words for. —Georgia O’Keeffe

In geometry, a square is a regular quadrilateral; it has four equal sides and four equal 90-degree angles.

A square is also technically a rhombus, a kite, a parallelogram, a quadrilateral, and a rectangle.

Squares signify stability. They are sturdy shapes that suggest familiarity, safety, and honesty. Their straight lines and sharp corners represent order and rationality. The uniformity of a square signifies equality.

Squares can also suggest rigidity or hardness.

In people, a square is understood as someone uncool or boring. Not so in design. We like both kinds of squares.

They are the most common shapes among man-made objects – from architecture to book pages.

    This skirt is absolutely stunning. As a proficient maker of “Alabama” skirts, with each new collection I am stunned by the difference between my being able to make a skirt and the true artistry that you roll out. The collection has been the most amazing ever!

    I strongly echo Susan’s comment. The half skirts! The fabric design of Addison! The embroidery on Della! The shape of Clara! The new color palette! You do amaze – all so fresh and totally new, and absolutely stunning.
