Twinkle Twinkle

A Star – to geometrists a type of non-convex polygon and to astrologers a luminous ball of gas.  Stars have long been represented in many ways in culture and in art and the most common is a 5 pointed star.  No one knows for sure the origins of this symbol; some believe it is from Egyptian hieroglyphics whilst others think it is because when you look at a star it appears to have 5 lines coming out which are diffraction spikes caused by the way light enters the eye.  On the US flag the stars represent the heavens.  Stars are also commonly used a symbol of fame.  This is perhaps because you look up to stars in the sky and people look up to famous people.

Whatever the reasons behind the five-pointed star symbol, Autumn/Winter 2016 has seen the star become the go to print.  Below I show you some of my favourite uses of this cosmic symbol in this seasons fashions.
