Street Style Huntress: Art Deco

by Aldona Barutowicz · 0 comments

For years now, I’ve had a running list of stylish people that I want to photograph at some point, and Cherry Deacon has been on that list for much too long! So when I ran into her again recently, I knew the time had finally arrived, and here we are!

I love her personal style and energy and want to celebrate that she’s true to herself and her aesthetic – she wears the perfect amount of pattern and texture, colour and her layering is beyond perfect. Also, her love of scarves is definitely something we both have in common!

Until next time, much love! xo AldonaB, Street Style Huntress

How would you describe your personal style?

Simple and yet complex.

What are some of your influences when it comes to fashion?

I would have to say the fashions of the Art Deco Period. The choppy asymmetrical hemlines, the layering of long necklaces, long earrings, & bangles. The fashions were fun and elegant. I have quite the collection of long necklaces. Also, my favourite designer is Issey Miyake. I love his geometric patterns & unstructured designs. His “Peats Please” collection is fabulous.

What are some of your favourite stores & shopping destinations in Downtown Calgary?

Aritzia, Fluevog & Simons.  Aritzia has some wonderful unstructured pieces which I like as well as great scarves. Fluvog is like going into a shoe museum. Great shoes. Simons’ Home section is just the best & they have a diverse selection of clothing.

What are some of your favourite Downtown YYC spots?

Glenbow, ATP, Café Rosso, 118 Empire, & Murrietas.

What are some of your favourite trends right now?

Scarves & more scarves. I don’t think you can have too many. I also really like the asymmetrical designs in jewellery.

What fashion advice would you give to others?

Dress for yourself & feel confident in what you wear. 

Tell us more about the projects and work you’re involved with.

Right now I’m concentrating on getting things ready in the shop for our next exhibition at Glenbow which is Alex Janvier: Modern Indigenous Master. It opens June 15 & it’s a major retrospective of his work. I’m busy ordering related products & books to have in the shop. And of course, I’m planning for our busiest season in the shop which is summer. We’ll have thousands of tourists, especially during Stampede.

 

What are some of your future aspirations?

Besides my work at Glenbow, I’m planning to spend more time concentrating on my jewellery designs & taking a few related workshops. 

How does your work influence your personal style?

Whether I’m in a meeting, greeting customers or unpacking boxes of new inventory I like to keep my style simple. I can always put on a beautiful scarf if I need to jazz things up a bit.

Anything you’d like to add or tell us about?

I love quotes by famous people.  I find them inspiring & I particularly like this one which I feel is relevant.

“Fashion is not something that exists in dresses only. Fashion is in the sky, in the street, fashion has to do with ideas, the way we live, what is happening”. – Coco Chanel
