Fishing for Flowers

Thanks to all who came out on Saturday to see the premier of my latest collection! I was stoked to see you there! Summer Camp Crush was a successful event and we raised a good amount of cash for the future Sewing Kitchen. Here are some pics taken by Hanna Quevedo from the show. I couldn't be happier!!!

Photographing Fashion

My goal is to make clothing that looks like it belongs somewhere in nature. Not that it's completely made entirely of raw, natural materials or anything. But that the clothing, somehow, can take on new life when it is photographed in nature. In doing so arises this duality of soft and hard, cold and warm, bold and muted, like taking a city dweller back to their mother country and rather than being scared or disgusted, but pleasantly surprised and delighted. I love that juxtaposition of artifice and earthiness. To me, that is just so pleasant visualize. Which is why I strive to make clothing that combines those two ideas. I've found some images, some recent and some old archived photos that I aspire to in photographing my own fashion.
