Morgan Le Fay

The latest Fashion Teller (http://issuu.com/fashiontellersl/docs/femmefatale) talks about Femme Fatales all through the history in different centuries. I got picked for the role of Morgan Le Fay what made me very happy as she is one of my favourite characters if it comes to medieval stories and novels. Every character got one special outfit made for their specific role and I feel very honored that I was allwed to showcase NV Corsetry with my character. The wonderful pictures are made by Enzo Champagne (above) and Spartin Parx (below), two very awesome & talented photograpers, that I really enjoyed working with and I hope it was not the last time🙂

Morgan Le Fay:

Morgan le Fay /ˈmɔrɡən lə ˈfeɪ/, alternatively known as Morgan le Faye, Morgane, Morgaine, Morgana and other names, is a powerful sorceress in the Arthurian legend. Early works featuring Morgan do not elaborate her character beyond her role as a fay or magician. She became much more prominent in the later cyclical prose works such as the Lancelot-Grail and the Post-Vulgate-Cycle, in which she becomes an antagonist to King Arthur and Queen Guinevere. She is said to be the daughter of Arthur’s mother, the LadyIgraine, and her first husband, Gorlois,Duke of Cornwall, so that Arthur (son of Igraine and Uther Pendragon) is her half-brother.

The early accounts of Geoffrey of Monmouth and Gerald of Wales refer to Morgan in conjunction with the Isle of Apples (later Avalon) to which the fatally wounded Arthur was carried. To the former, she was an enchantress, one of nine sisters; to the latter, she was the ruler and patroness of an area near Glastonbury and a close blood-relation of King Arthur. In the early romances of Chrétien de Troyes, also, she figures as a healer.

Though in later stories, she becomes an adversary of the Round Table when Guinevere discovers her adultery with one of her husband’s knights, she eventually reconciles with her brother and even retains her original role, serving as one of the four enchantresses who carry him to Avalon after his final battle at Camlann. She has at least two elder sisters, Elaine and Morgause, the latter of whom is the mother of Gawain and the traitor Mordred. In Sir Thomas Malory’s Le Morte d’Arthur and elsewhere, she is married, unhappily, to King Urien of Gore and Ywain is her son.
