Sea Of Ghosts is an ongoing chronicle of fashion and design with a focus on dark styling and the local jewellery industry by emerging contemporary jewellery designer and style blogger, Alicia Hannah Naomi.
Alicia’s approach to her personal style involves maintaining a strong vision for her aesthetic presentation. Believing in considered minimalism, Alicia contends it is possible to love fashion whilst maintaining a highly edited capsule wardrobe. Since 2008 she has been cultivating and refining her style using her blog to document the journey. Her style evolution has settled in kindred to the traditional Japanese wabi sabi and shibui aesthetics of asymmetry, minimalism, organic imperfection, with a subtle femininity and lots of black.
A highly conceptual artist, Alicia harnesses the inspirations presented in her blog, as well as drawing from her love of progressive metal; her fascination with geometry, astronomy and quantum mechanics, and her appreciation for industrial, deconstructed fashions in her design work. She counts designers such as Rick Owens, Yohji Yamamoto and Ann Demeulemeester as her aesthetic design icons.
Alicia is based in Melbourne, Australia. Her eponymous label ALICIA HANNAH NAOMI was launched in October 2012.
