Peter Jensen’s Muses take Designmuseum Danmark

  The dethroned ice-skating princess, Tonya Harding, is one of fashion designer Peter Jensen’s five muses selected= 

The Danish fashion designer, Peter Jensen, is fascinated by charismatic women.
His fascination has lead to his collections being inspired by a universe created around a muse; a strong, extraordinary – and often quite edgy – woman.
Designmuseum Danmark celebrates the ten year anniversary of the designer’s brand, Peter Jensen, with an exhibition showcasing five of his muses.
 

Strong and Extraordinary Women
“I’ve had over 20 different muses since 2001. They are always strong women, some of them are somewhat surprising choices for fashion muses, and some of them have had rather unfortunate fates…,” says the Danish fashion designer, Peter Jensen.
Peter Jensen graduated from the internationally acclaimed school of design, Central Saint Martins in London, in 1999. He employed a muse for the first time for his graduation show, and when he started a fashion brand in his own name it seemed obvious to continue working with muses.
The extraordinary muses and their stories have ensured him an impressive list of international clients and a three-year grant from the Danish Arts Council in 2009. He is the first fashion designer to win this grant as it is usually bestowed upon fine artists. 

Peter Jensen’s aunt Jytte from Greenland was the muse for his A/W 2009-collection.
Scandinavian viewers will notice that the soundtrack for the fashion show (set in London) features a remix of Danish soft rock-diva, Anne Linnet, emphasizing the designer’s love of strong, iconic women.

High school students interested in becoming medical, dental, or ophthalmic laboratory technicians should take courses in mathematics and science. Courses in metal and wood shop, art, drafting, and computers are recommended. Courses in management and business may help those wishing to operate their own laboratories. Most medical, dental, and ophthalmic laboratory technicians are hired with a high school diploma and learn their tasks through on-the-job training. The remaining 1 percent is found in the blood. Cortical bone is dense and compact. It forms the outer layer of the bone. Trabecular bone makes up the inner layer of the bone and has a spongy, honeycomb-like structure. More than 40 percent of women have dense breast tissue, putting them at greater risk of developing breast cancer. North Carolina is one of 12 states required to share with patients information about their breast-density classification. This test provides another screening options for patients, stendra online Besson says. The ultrasound technology allows technicians to see through dense tissue by collecting a series of images that are then converted to a 3-D view. Christopher Saltmarsh, a radiologist at Gaston Radiology. Gaston Radiology is working with CaroMont to provide the screenings. Gioacchino Failla, one of the greatest pioneers in the fields of biophysics and radiobiology, began his career at New York's Memorial Hospital in 1915. Within a few years of joining the staff, he had established the first research program devoted to improving the medical applications of radiation. One of the initial products of this research was the construction of a radon generator, the first in the United States. In 1921, Failla was the first to suggest that radiation doses be expressed as the amount of radiation energy absorbed and made the first dose estimates in radium therapy in terms of microcalories per cc of tissue. There are many ways to categorize wine, the most obvious being by color. Red wines clearly differ from whites. And of course there are differences in vintages, regions, winemaking styles, and oak-aging regimes. One way to separate wines is into one of three broad categories: (a) wines that age, (b) wines that do not, and a third sort of gray area in which a wine may or may not age well based on various situations. Another 5% are in Category B, and 5% in Category C..
