We’re back from Charleston Fashion Week. It was a wonderful experience and all of the emerging designers are so talented and gracious.
We showed eight of our Fall 2012 looks during Thursday night’s show. The hair and make-up team were awesome and really brought our vision to life. Our models were amazing and so sweet, they did an incredible job walking for us. Special thanks to PJ Benedict and Gabrielle Duggan for helping us backstage doing last minute pressing, hemming and whatever else we needed - we are forever grateful. And special thanks to Robert Ruehlman and Daniel Ruehlman for documenting our show on film, we can’t wait to post some of the images that they captured.
Now, onto our Fall photo shoot!

Come one come all - we’ve started a project on Kickstarter to help us raise funds for materials for Fall 2012 line to debut at Charleston Fashion Week. Every little bit helps, so help us any little bit!

Madly working to finish all of our patterns for our Fall 2012 Collection, Dahlia.
This is our original sketch for Dahlia’s story - Elegant with an edge, she’s distant but approachable. Wandering an all but empty museum, the even daylight flooding the gallery set off her bold unencumbered look. She sits on a leather tufted bench, waiting with an air of nonchalance for something to find her. Full of stark lines and subtle tones, Fall 2012 gives a nod to Modernist architecture, while paying tribute to eras of old for a unique mix of silhouettes. Dahlia comes to life in creams, blushes and blues.
Something beautiful that caught my eye.

“Across the artificial divide seperating the worlds of music and art, Carsten Nicolai, aka Alva Noto, is known for an aesthetics of precision: the form of the artist’s stripped-down sound and design installations often follows a scientific function, playing with and altering viewers’ audio-visual perceptions…” (via Hans Ulrich Obrist talks to Carsten Nicolai)
