Corbin Times Tribune (Newspaper) - April 5, 1986, Corbin, Kentucky The times Tribune weekend edition april a 1984�?5 Milena canonero a designs out of Africa fashionable a exp a much to Admire in Isak Dinesen there is much to Admire in the life of the extraordinary woman in the Academy award winning movie a out of Isak Dinesen pen name for Karen Blixen was a philosopher and adventurer pragmatic businesswoman and romantic Teller of tales. I am pleased that the films popularity has revived her 1937 Book into a 1986 Best seller. I myself stumbled across a out of Africa a More than 20 years ago shortly after the death of its danish author who ran a Coffee Plantation in Kenya. Hauntingly written there Are fragments of her compelling prose that never left me. One was her description of a Herd of Buffalo coming a out of the morning Mist under a Copper sky one by one As if the dark and massive Iron like animals. Were not approaching but were being created before my eyes and sent out As they were another unforgotten line was the african chant when Spring Rains finally began after the Long months of hot dry weather. A give me enough and More than enough a the africans be seethed the sky. A i will not let thee go except thou bless Dinesen adapted the plea to the visitors who came and went from her comfortable farm House. She wrote a they sat contented by the fire and when the House closing round them said t will not let you go except you bless me a they laughed and blessed it and it let them at 78, emaciated and dying Long after her years in Africa she told a Friend that life had blessed her and she was ready to let it go. Rusty Brown Isak Dinesen embodied Many of the strengths women today value and strive for. She once said to her sister a i think it will be truly glorious when women become real people and have the whole world open to she became a a real in Africa. She Learned from the kikuyu to be a risk taker a a to be adjusted for the unforeseen and accustomed to the unix she struggled on her own to p the farm going for 17 years despite insufficient rain and the wrong kind of soil. Her Day to Day challenges instilled in her a sense of Pride she did not have before. Africa also taught her the importance of nurturing our relationship with our environment. She once adopted an orphaned Antelope who darted in and out of the House on thin delicate legs. A Lulu came in from the wild world to show that we were on Good terms with it and she made my House one with the african landscape so that nobody could Tell where one stopped and the other the danish Baroness was an instinctive Leader and she became one to the people who lived on her land. Her understanding of the role would stand up to any definition written by a Harvard mba. A there is a paradoxical moment in the relation Between the leaders and the followers that they should see every weakness and failing in him so clearly. And yet should still inevitably turn to him. A flock of sheep May be feeling the same toward the Herd boy they will have infinitely better knowledge of the country and the weather than he and still will be walking after him if needs be straight into the she repaid the loyalty of her followers going to great lengths to secure a Refuge for them when the farm had to be abandoned and sold. Aft Rall she reasoned the natives had held the land undisputed Long before the British came. When she finally departed in 1931, she wondered if Africa would know a song of her a would the air Over the Plain quiver with a color that i had had on or the children invent a game in which my name was. Or would the eagles of Ngong look out for me a Isak Dinesen need not have wondered. She wrote a song of Africa that has blessed us for 50 years the song of a woman who found her full measure at the foot of the Ngong Hills. By Florence de Santis in addition to dominating the Academy awards a out of Africa May be a major influence what we Wear. Just As fashion has turned to the classic Milena canonero a designs for meryl Streep As Baroness Karen Blixen Are sending fashion designers to see the movie. Its not the first time the italian born designer has influenced fashion. Her futuristic costumes for a a clockwork Orange a in 1971, launched Many of the London a a Punk looks. With a chariots of fire in 1981, she caused designers to reconsider the 1920s. She won an Academy award for costumes for that movie her second and was nominated for an Academy award for a out of Africa this year. Her first Oscar was for her gorgeous 18th Century costumes in a Barry Lyndon in 1975. Miss canonero a Range is wide. In a out of Africa a she had to design High fashion of the teens and twenties of this Century for the aristocratic Fash Ion Loving heroine hundreds of costumes for other europeans and White Hunters and most difficult of All costumes for the native africans of from 1914 to 1924. The period has been done in movies before. If miss canonero has stirred up such interest with a out of Africa a it can be Laid to her combination of authentic details and imagination. She is particularly marvelous with hats which the Baroness especially loved. Miss canonero enjoyed that since she also loves hats. The period of a out of Africa was a fashion transition Era Between the elaborate edwardian years and the revolutionary Short minimal late �?T20s. Today these clothes look More contemporary and attractive than the mini styles of the jazz age. Even the colors Are contemporary As miss canonero used neutrals like Khaki White Ivory and Navy to set off the Bright colors worn by the african characters. Such colors also suited the sophisticated character of Baroness Blixen who wrote under the name of Isak Dinesen.
