What is “Funky Baroque”?

Incorporate and interpret the style and attitude of all things “Baroque” through the most contemporary and “funky” lens possible and create your own hybrid sense of fashion, glamour, and over-the-top excess…

Think Lady Gaga and David Bowie meets Artemisia Gentileschi. And Johannes Vermeer Highbrow purity meets veiled decadence. That’s our interpretation of Funky Baroque.
