Daughters of the Ocean – Print Inspirations

“Nature has scarcely produced anything so fragile and splendid in color as these wonderful creatures….To laymen and inlanders, these daughters of the ocean seem mysterious and fantastic.”

~Ernst Haekel

In a tribute to the disappearing coral reefs, our artists drew inspiration for this collection from the remarkably mystical drawings of the 19th century scientist, Ernst Haekel. Haekel brought to light the hidden creatures of the deep in his extraordinarily detailed and breathtakingly beautiful drawings of exquisite life forms. His sublime renderings reveal the sacred geometry in the beautifully intricate structure of these previously unknown organisms.

The prints in this Blue Fish collection marry these fantastical illustrations in an exotic collage, balancing color, sacred natural form and design for an endless combination of totally unique outfits. Haekel was referring to the mysterious marine creatures when he used the expression, “daughters of the ocean,” but we hope you will feel like a beautiful daughter of the ocean in these wonderful garments.

To see more of Haekel’s illustrations, we recommend Art Forms in Nature, a superb body of work.

Size Guide


Blue Fish sizing is uniquely ours. We have developed this system to fit many body types, shapes, & heights comfortably. Here is the Blue Fish size chart and its traditional size equivalent:

00 – only available in select styles. fits up to size 6

0 – fits up to size 10

1 – fits ups to size 16

2 – fits up to size 22

3 – only available in our studio tees & some tunics. fits up to size 26

O/S – one size that fits most customers

Remember that each style is unique & has different measurements--please check the size chart on your item of interest for exact measurements! One style may fit you differently than other styles you have worn before and we strongly recommend checking the measurements before making your purchase.


You might wear a combination of sizes depending on your body shape and how you prefer the drape of your clothing. For instance, you might wear a size 0 pants and a size 1 top. If you prefer looser, more flowy clothing, size up--if you prefer more fitted pieces, choose those closer to your actual measurements. We provide measurements for each style so you can find the best fit for the way you like to wear your Blue Fish.
