Between her day job on GQ’s fashion squad and her second life as a talented artist, Courtney Spitznagel often uses her wardrobe to help supercharge her creative juices. “I try to keep an open mind when getting dressed and tap into whatever wavelength I am riding that day,” Courtney says. “I am continuously drawn towards pieces that invigorate and inspire me on a deeper energetic level.”
Lately, Courtney’s been drawn again and again to this epic flowy dress from German designer Julia Heuer. “Julia Heuer’s pieces are alive with bold colors, enigmatic shapes, and a texture of handmade plissé. This dynamic combination makes you feel as if you are wearing a piece of art, and as a painter myself that is always the goal.”
