Season 2 Episode 55: Resa McConaghy on Glamour, Fantasy and Art

Once upon a time, there was a beautiful young girl named Virginia who lived in the Empire D’Amore. Unfortunately, she was very poor, a seamstress for the wealthy merchants of the kingdom. One day, the Emperor D’Amore demanded that his son, Prince Will, marry. He decreed a holiday with a royal procession throughout the empire.” Resa McConaghy, Empress D’Amore – A Cheeky Fairytale

Welcome to Tea, Toast and Trivia.

Thank you for listening in.

I am heading over the Rocky Mountains across the Prairie Provinces of Alberta, Saskatchewan, and Manitoba to the vibrant city of Toronto, Ontario to meet up with Resa McConaghy, a dear blogger friend, artist, photographer, and established costume designer in film, television, and digital media.  Resa has worked her costume designer magic on productions for Showtime, ABC, Disney, CBS, CBC, Hallmark, and more.   She brings out personalities with her costume designs and adds dramatic moods to each scene by balancing texture and colours.

Resa’s mission is to enable the articulation of character through wardrobe.  And she does this brilliantly through storytelling.  An illustration of this talent is captured in Empress D’Amore – A Cheeky Fairytale, recently published on Flapper Press, an on-line magazine created by Elizabeth Gracen and an international team of talented artists and writers.

Today, Resa invited us to Art Gowns, the world of art and glamourous fantasy. So, put the kettle on and add your thoughts on Tea Toast & Trivia.  I am your host, Rebecca Budd, and I am looking forward to sharing this moment with you.

And a very special thank you and shout out to Resa –  you live life with compassion, hope and bold enthusiasm.

Listeners,  I invite you to meet up with Resa on Art Gowns and Flapper Press. You are only an internet click away from the world of glamour and fantasy.

      Thank you for listening in, Holly. Resa and I felt your presence when we discussed Velvet Tango and we both agree that your poetry is remarkable. It is very difficult to hear our voices for the first time. I remember thinking OMG – I can’t do this. My voice sounded so strange to me. Then I took a deep breath pressed the publish button. As my father said to before he passed nine years ago, you must look for the stories. I had no idea what he meant until a few years later when I heard the beautiful voices through the blogging community. We are learning to live musically as Vincent van Gogh once said: “In the end we shall have had enough of cynicism, skepticism and humbug, and we shall want to live more musically.” Sending many hugs and love back your way!!!

    Resa’s gowns are extraordinarily beautiful.
    A lovely conversation. It was great ot hear her talk about her passion. I love learning about someone’s creative process, especially in an art form I could never attempt, never mind master- never in a million years. I loved her term -gowns of art for the proletariart.
    It was nice to hear Holly from House of Heart was an inspiration for a gown. She is a major poet- her use of language and imagery is extraordinary.
    Also nice to hear how the Art gowns are working for good causes.

      Paul – I am thrilled you joined us on this conversation. You have the very best comments. I agree – Resa has an extraordinary talent in creating fantasy and glamour. She is an artist who recognizes our search for connecting, for belonging, for love. When she said that she had her best ideas doing dishes, I had goosebumps. Some of my best memories are conversations with my mother when we did the dishes, before the advent of dishwashers. What seems like a trivial act, such as dishes, is what gives our lives meaning. Above all, Resa’s kindness shines through every one of her posts. And now she has courageously taken on “climate change aka Etamilc Egnahc”. YIKES!!

      What a lovely comment. Holly is a major source of fun and inspiration. It’s kind of crazy, but it all started with a character we made up… Boogapony Holly. Here’s one of the posts. https://graffitiluxandmurals.com/2020/02/06/boogapony-holly-magic-carpet-tour/
      The avenues of creativity are endless.
      YAY!! Someone likes “gowns of art for the proletariart”.
      It’s quite the deep…ahem…. thought/slogan.
      Rebecca has honoured me with this interview. I adore her. She is now the Art Director for RR (Rene Rosso) and the Art Gowns Models in our “Gowntoons”.

At present she is fighting climate change aka “Etamilc Egnahc” in her posts. We are all waiting for the next installment in the series. Sending many hugs and love your way.

    What a fantastic choice, Rebecca, for your guest, Resa, this super talented couturière, and designer of these magnificent creations, magnificently all, one more so than the other. I’ve seen her impressive costumes on her site, and having had a mother who earned hers and her three young children’s living, as a young couturièrre, in the field of haute couture, after father died, makes this field close to my heart and taste for beautiful clothes. Resa’s occupation is by extension high on my list of interests. Bravo for your choice Rebecca, and Bravo for your creations, Resa !

        Thank you for this lovely comment, Jean – Jacques.
        Couturier has vanished little by little, over time.
        There are still some who can afford true couturier, but they are in that 1% I hear about so often. Even then, as long as there is a “Designer” brand to spin heads, few care about… needle in, needle out. They care about the purses.
        True, in the beginning, sewing machines were a blessing.
        Now, hard core manufacturing has conquered the landscape.
        Your mother sounds like a very interesting person, and a great topic for Rebecca.
        I’m so glad you can appreciate my art, and not just because it is pretty. It is because I am one of the last to keep alive the techniques of the past, and have added a few details, from yesterday, today and tomorrow.
        Again, thank you!

    Dear Resa,
    when I looked at your designs a central sentence of Hegel’s aesthetics came to my mind “appearance is essential to the being”.
    I see your creations as a fine work of art but if I would meet somebody wearing it I would stay away from her. It would be too much for my taste. I have to admit I have my problems with glamour – not in art but in everydaylife.
    Do you design fashion for men as well?
    I enjoyed your podcast very much. Thanks for sharing

      I am delighted that you listened, Klausbernd. I knew that you would enjoy this discussion and appreciate Resa’s creative spirit. I agree – Resa’s dresses are artwork, every gown brought together with hand-stitches and inspired by people who make a difference. Resa’s thought on how most of us will never wear a gown, other than for a wedding or prom, resonated with me, especially how she connected this idea with glamour with fantasy. In truth, there are very few places or events that call for this form of glamour. And yet, we enjoy viewing the gowns coming down a fashion runway or televised at a gala event and discussed at length in magazines and social media. As you said, we recognize the art in the creation – the colours, the details, and flow of material. I look back at the photos of my mother in her 1940’s and 1950’s suits and marvel at the formality that the suits brought to an occasion. There was a time she would never leave the house without a hat and gloves. I was reading about Diana Vreeland recently – she had me thinking with this thought (and I am still thinking) : “Fashion is part of the daily air and it changes all the time, with all the events. You can even see the approaching of a revolution in clothes. You can see and feel everything in clothes.” I enjoy our conversations, Klausbernd. Many thanks.

      Klausbernd,
      Thank you for your comment!
      I have designed for both men and women. The garment industry is a rat race. I was disgusted. So, I moved to film, where I could practice a different aspect of my knowledge and abilities.
      Therein, characters wore my clothes, and it helped to tell a story.
      Now, I am in a fantasy of beauty & glamour, of my own making. It is meant purely as a joy, and not to intimidate any person.
      My Art Gowns are worn in spirit, not in the street, office or a party.

    Dear Rebecca,
    thank you very much for answering and especially for this Diana Vreeland quote. Fashion always had to do with power and politics. You can see it especially clearly during the French Revolution. But nowadays as well. When I was a student it was a fashion not wearing something fashionable. Later the hippie movement gave men the chance to find an individual style.
    There is a problem with fashion that it can easily hide the person wearing it.
    Looking forward talk to you about beauty tomorrow, a topic that’s basic for fashion as well. Fashion should make you look more beautiful, doesn’t it? Or is it like l’art pour l’art, fashion for the sake of fashion?
    With lots of love and warm greetings from the cold sea
    Klausbernd 🙂

I was also very taken by her comments about poets in the blogging world. I’ve noticed the same thing and been inspired and encouraged in ways I never would have thought of doing on my own.

      My dear Mr Wapojif,
      Flattery will get you everywhere.
      When I finally figure out an Art Gown for you, it will be dedicated to Alex. Yes, it will be based on a dressing gown. However, the fabrics haven’t come into my life, yet. In the meantime, I’ve got a super drawing of you, in a smashing new outfit, coming up in episode 4 of the current PBH story. Adore you!

    Wonderful interview! Resa is so talented, and it was fun to hear her voice. I also enjoyed my introduction to “Tea Toast & Trivia,” as I wound my way from Holly/Rene to Resa and on.

  19. OHHHHH, this is amazing. I heard Resa’s voice YES. And I so smiled so many times, i especially loved how she talked about gowns being creative, about glamour and then the let’s face it most people don’t ever wear one. Well i am wearing a gown at Christmas I have decided!!!! Ladies, this was an absolute treat to listen to.

      I know that you will look amazing in your gown. And Christmas is a perfect time to bring out the glamour. I’ll be joining you virtually, my dear clansister. Resa’s gowns speak to the need to find beauty and joy, everyday. I’m so glad that you joined the conversation!! Hugs and more hugs!

      Shey!
      Thank you for listening in!
      I wish I could make the Art Gowns faster. I want to dedicate one to you, as. you know. A piece of fabric has come into my life that can be a basis for one. I see it as romantic, period, daring and fiery.
      I’m working on an AG garden, right now. Then I’ve managed to gather enough of the right fabrics to make one dedicated to Timothy, based on the Cottonwood trees. (You have one of these magic trees for Art Gowns Model Shey)
      In the meantime, there are many Art Gowns Model Shey gowns on their way.
      You are a gem… wearing one at Christmas! You have the extended mind of a creative writer, which is what you are!
      Adore you!
