Wanderlust: |ˈwändərˌləst| noun, a strong desire to travel.
The term bonds Patricia Bellan- Gillen’s “Disorderly Notions” to the upcoming fashion seen in fall 2013 collections. Designers and our featured artist use hues of magenta and aqua to carry us into the fall, not letting us forget the majestic shades that summer leaves behind. The upcoming season also holds onto patterns of rich flora, much like the captivating environment Patricia Bellan- Gillen presents in her over-life-size pieces. The spirit of travel along with the ability to recall a memorable place are crucial to Bellan- Gillen’s show. Wanderlust inspires an affection to continually move. However, with each journey, a time of recollection and an awareness to such memories allows each “wanderluster” to create their own ideas of what is before them. Wilderness and travel inspire fashion, much like Bellan- Gillen’s attraction to adventure and the great outdoors. This lifestyle trend combines modern functionality with traditional fashion styles.
