It's October, the month that All Hallows' Eve falls under, the night that long ago was created to celebrate Pagan harvest and honor the dead. Naturally then, October has become the month for all things dark, spooky and taboo. So here at Studio 1220, we are honoring black this month, the true anti-color.

We also can't help but be reminded of some fashion rebels of the 60's and 70's who looked like they were born to wear black. These were all women that men described as having a sense of magic surrounding them, luring men into their lives and becoming muses of rock musicians, fashion designers and girls of the past and present. 

                                                           EDIE SEDGWICK
Edie Sedgwick was best known for her association with Andy Warhol and his Factory. This well-heeled American debutante became a symbol of Sixties style, rebellion and freedom. She inspired Andy's art and captivated Bob Dylan who was said to have written many songs about her. She loved to wear big fur coats with black tights and made them look elegant and effortless.

Marianne Faithfull became a fixture in the wild social scene that was dubbed, "Swinging London." Then a four-year relationship with Rolling Stones frontman, Mick Jagger, in the mid Sixties cemented her status as a true rock-n-roll muse. Marianne looked like such a good girl, but would edge up her look with leather and jean jackets.

                                                              STEVIE NICKS
Stevie Nicks is a true rock n' roll queen. She was the beautiful bohemian woman best known as the female singer from the band Fleetwood Mac in the mid 70's. Her style was always unique, she could usually be seen in oversized clothes with flowing sleeves, wore mostly black and some would say had a pagan/witchy way about the way she'd dress. She wrote and sang in one of her most famous songs Rhiannon, "She is like a cat in the dark and then she is the darkness, she rules her life like a fine skylark and when the sky is starless." She was truly a woman of mystery and intrigue, with an amazing voice and a sense of style all her own.

                                                                                  Have a spooky October
                                                            And watch out for black cats crossing your path
