Milan Fashion Week 2018


Relic & Rune

Milan, 16th January 2018: Relic + Rune, the new collection of Susan Lenart Kazmer, was inspired by the artist’s legacy with the Talisman world. She had the opportunity to travel the world, staying in small villages in Southeast Asia where there were no hotels, sleeping in barns and on the outside of local farmers’ buildings. She met people from Karen, Hmong and Akha communities and experienced life in a small simple village without internet, electricity or TV, just a pure way of living. Newly inspired to Talismans and symbolism, she began buying artifacts, beads and hand woven fabrics. With each piece that passed through her hands she felt the object’s power, love and strength, learning that these very qualities were embedded into the objects themselves by use of emotions, desires and repetition. This is what creates a Talisman. Relic + Rune Jewels are common altered objects that give the appearance and feel of an ancient + sacred adornment. The artist implement layers of rubbings, prayers, intentions into this piece to provide the feel of ancient relevance and the sacred divinity of a Relic.
