Outside the Sun is Shining

but inside a cloud has been cast. "Have you heard the news?" they whisper as we trickle in the door...A creative genius, an idol for many, and an inspiration for us all. The 'enfant terrible' of fashion, Alexander McQueen dead at 40...A month until Paris, we wonder, 'will the show go on?'....

What's in a name?

Apparently quite a bit. Re-brand as something more mature shall we? I'm looking for a name that primarily reflects a brand of intimates & sleepwear but with the possibility of growing into an entire woman's ready to wear line.

Think: women aged 27-40, middle to high income, post-sec. education
Values: Fashion, comfort, health,
awareness of environmental & social issues

Brainstorm of the day:
awareness of fashions role in today's issues
look & feel good (ie: can i have nice looking underwear that doesn't chemicals on my vagina? thank you!)
confidence in femininity
sexy & suggestive yet sweet & innocent. (ie: lace, frills, ruffles w/ good fit, comfort, full coverage)
Socially conscious/self conscious <---not self conscious 'cause she loves her self/curves/body...but she is conscious of herself & choices.
play with the idea of being a socially conscious shopper/consumer.... 

Key words:
sexy, self, consciousness, self conscious, light, fresh, intimate, undies, panties, feminine, sweet, sexy, woman.........etc...

First Round Possibilities:
Conscious Self

Conscious Experience
"Anything that we are aware of at a given moment forms part of our consciousness, making conscious experience at once the most familiar and most mysterious aspect of our lives."

Conscienta (means "moral conscience"; knowledge with; shared knowledge)

I have no idea.......any thoughts?

A brief history of Gaia

"The Earth is about 4,6 billion years old. For an easier understanding, let’s cut this time-span down to 46 years. The early years of Gaia's existence are clouded in the mists of history. It wasn't until the age of 42 that the earth started to bloom. After about 44 years, dinosaurs inhabited the planet. Some eight months ago the first mammals evolved, and during this last week the first hominids entered the scene. Modern man has existed for only about four hours; some sixty minutes ago he took up agriculture, and a minute ago the industrial revolution began. During these very last sixty seconds man has managed to turn Gaia into a garbage dump, to exterminate thousands of plant and animal species, to kill an uncountable number of his own kind, to loot the planet's resources, to pollute soil, air and water and to leave radiating waste for future generations.

Within the next few seconds, all of us will decide whether we are going to make life on Gaia impossible, or develop a consciousness that allows us a future existence on our homeplanet. "


It takes a Midterm
