The last few months have been a bit of a whirl wind. Things have been very busy, I have been trying my hand at floral design and I am loving it. These are a few of the arrangements I have put together in the last few months. I am still designing clothing and working on a full size run of dresses. Currently I am in the process of fabric sourcing and patterning. As the project gets rolling I will take photos and post them as soon as possible.
Done for Re:deux, a charity event hosted by St. Vincent de Paul to help raise money for those who need a helping hand by transforming donated materials into one of a kind pieces.
Highlights from Driehaus. It was an amazing event and wonderful to win 1st place. So many doors have been opened and I’m pumped about the future.
Look three is complete! That means the collection is finished. I can’t believe it, I have spent eight months working on these pieces. I have my photo shoot soon. It will feel great to see the garments under the bright lights and on the beautiful model, Eva Violet. One of my best friends is coming home to Chicago to photograph the collection. Could not be more excited to see her.
All is good.

Meditation is old and honorable, so why should I
not sit, every morning of my life, on the hillside,
looking into the shining world? Because, properly
attended to, delight, as well as havoc, is suggestion.
Can one be passionate about the just, the
ideal, the sublime, and the holy, and yet commit
to no labor in its cause? I don’t think so.
All summations have a beginning, all effect has a
story, all kindness begins with the sown seed.
Thought buds toward radiance. The gospel of
light is the crossroads of — indolence, or action.
Be ignited, or be gone.

I’m currently working on my thesis this year. Here is my inspiration, my jumping point. The ideas started to develop from reading Camus’ novel The Stranger and thinking about metamorphosis.
I’m pretty excited about it and I’ll post more soon!
