La Esencia de Titania

Resa has created an art dress using fairies as inspiration, but it takes fashion to a higher plane. It makes a statement about how connected people and magic are to nature.

Birds feeding on filigree seeds.

Sipping warm mead, reading

Gilded tomes about far away homes,

goblins, gnomes, fairies and

Treasure troves.
