Welcome to my world...

Antonia Marat of /artilleri/

It's hard not to think of Elvis tunes when you consider my ninth guest-star, Antonia Marat:

Welcome to my world
Won't you come on in!
Miracles I guess
Still happen, now and then.

I mean, the woman made not just a line of clothing, but a whole world in which to wear them. It's a world that's stuck in that precious moment of time before Elvis bloated up; when cars were big and waistlines were natural and the proper way to flirt was to say, Tell me about it, stud.

Like most designers, Antonia projects her clothing aesthetic through her avatar's look. She's got an air about her as if her avatar was a former diner waitress that had a great idea, worked her ass off, struck paydirt, and kept her down-to-earth mentality. She calls herself "Antie," and I bet she's equally at home making flapjacks, showing off her tattoos, discussing the latest juicy gossip, and creating great clothes!

Have I mentioned rockabilly yet? Antonia's living proof that nice girls smoke, drink, think, design things, and wear frilly bloomers, all without breaking a sweat.

If there's one designer I wish I knew better, it's gotta be Antonia. The few times I've bumped into her or had a chance to speak with her, she's so cool and down to earth. <3

I saw the frilly bloomers! At her new release party, she was in her skivvies dancing it up in an oversized martini glass. =)

And yes, she's totally fun. :D
