Beauty of style and harmony and grace and good rhythm depends on simplicity.
- PlatoIn Greek mythology, poetry, and literature, The Muses were the goddesses that inspired the creation of literature, science, and the arts. In Ancient Greece, it had been said that in the beginning there were only three in number but later multiplied into nine in total. Regardless, there are only three in my life. Three very different women, at different ages, but all three are beautiful inside and out.
All three of these women hold a very important place in my heart and mind. I have a different relationship with each, but all three have contributed to my work (sketches and styling). It's not just towards work. It's life in general. All three are very down to earth - kind human beings with big hearts. I've decided to dedicate this post, as they have inspired each look, (and future posts with the title The Muses) to these three gorgeous women as I love each of them dearly.

My definition of elegance and classical beauty. I could say every time she comes into mind I automatically think of royalty, as if she was strolling down the main road in an open carriage waving at the citizens with a smile to light up the world. With a goddess-like figure and looks, this woman makes my heart flutter with little effort to none at all. The way she speaks, laughs, and presents herself to the rest of the world is mesmerizing. I have nothing but fond memories of her.

She is my definition of sensuality. Silhouettes that are both playful and cute suddenly become seductive when she tries them on. And yes, having an authentic English accent helps. I absolutely adore this young lady, as I affectionately call her "my favorite Bangali girl". We are so much alike it's incredible, we feed off each others positivity. This woman is not only gorgeous, but sophisticated and caring individual. She's not only my favorite person to style, but also a strong and loving mother of the cutest little girl. We have mutual admiration and respect for each other, always topping each others love for one another.

The 5'10" Punjabi girl with Kashmiri blood in her (in my opinion, the most beautiful women in the world are from Kashmir) is the youngest of the three. A model turned aspiring singer is the one I've known the longest. She's a California native that represents youth and fun; it's the attitude of a free spirit, but she knows her limits. I've known my raspberry gelato since she was around 10 or 11, not a worry in the world. She's grown up and still plenty to grow. One thing is for sure, this young lady has plenty of confidence when it comes to her personal style.
