It all started many years ago .... when a friend said to me "Bettina! People should be able to wear your paintings!"
And, honestly, it started way before that.... when at age 18, I was told by a fashion design school in Berlin that I was too old to enter their program, when at age 19 I was told that I had to wait 3 more years to enter art school in Berlin.... and I didn't listen to the 'No's' and kept creating my inconsistently non-sensical tapestry of living, deviating my journey several times, learning about business and finance while always creating my own wardrobe and adding joyful, colorful fashion accessories to the world of business that is to this day dominated by black, white and grey.
I painted to feed my joy and my artistic being, and then my friend said her magical words. "People should be able to wear your art!"
What? This could be for others too? For many years, I seached for ways and possibilities to create 'Wearable Art' in a beautiful quality. Cheap and flimsy doesn't interest me. I'd rather just paint. And then, the universe brought me a team of people to create with.
In 2017, I launched the first samples mainly for and on my own body, and the label "For Magical Bodies" was born and later shortened to "Magical Bodies". The designs are all based on my original art. This means there is an original painting in oil or acrylic or watercolor that is the source for the designs.
"Magical Bodies" Designs are colorful, and some are stretchy (like the leggings and dresses), others floaty with a beautiful swing (i.e. the fringed drapes). Find your "Magical Body" here, whether for yoga or the pool party, for styling in the city or at the beach. It will dress up your wardrobe.
Or, maybe, your entire world?
And, our magical ingredient? Joy.
Thank you for being here!
Cheers to a beautiful world!,
Bettina & The Magical Bodies Team
