East to West

I started off the new year with a trip to LA (for Esao's show at Thinkspace Gallery / a much needed vacation from NYC) We were lucky to be able to stay at the amazing James Jean's house where we were able to visualize what it would be to live the good life by the beach. 

Will 2012 be the year of the big move to the west coast???
I can picture it!

Life Aquatic

I've been trying to take work outside with me as much as I possibly can to enjoy the beautiful weather. New York in the summertime is the best! Living near the East River makes it really easy to take advantage of all the parks, piers, ferries, etc. that make for mini "vacations" from work (although my version of "work" should also be in quotations haha!)

Here are some images from the past week or two- shark jaws that I found at the beach in Ft. Tilden, boats at the South Street Seaport where Esao did a sketch of me reading the new NYLON, a sneak peak from a photoshoot last weekend by a creek in NJ, a wholesale order sent to Summer Studio in Avalon, NJ, and an Aqua Bandeau Set that can be purchased here.

Hope everyone else is enjoying the start of summer!

A Little Inspiration

Here we have some images of what has been referred to as my "Tumblr on my wall" haha. I'm a very tactile person- I need to be able to hold the images and see them displayed together to make sense of the whole.

The third image is part of my textile design process- I love drawing by hand, but this image has been scanned, color corrected, and tiled into a repeat in photoshop. The finished pieces are near to completion, so there will be more photos later.

The last image is part of the inspiration behind my new collection to be presented this summer at The Lingerie Journal Designer Showcase. One of the strangest plants of the desert, the Night-blooming Cereus is a member of the Cactus Family that resembles nothing more than a dead bush most of the year. It is rarely seen in the wild because of its inconspicuousness. But for one midsummer's night each year, its exquisitely scented flower opens as night falls, then closes forever with the first rays of the morning sun.

Memorial Day

I'm spending my Memorial Day sketching out new ideas and working on my textiles and color scheme for the new collection, but also taking a moment to enjoy the beautiful weather! Stay tuned for more sneak previews....

Highlights from AZ

I was away in AZ this month where I discovered what life is like in the desert- cactus, caves, quails, snakes, scorpions, hiking in platforms, donkeys hee-hawing in the middle of the night, hoarders, confederate flags/insane clown posse banners, gun stores, more stars than I knew existed, amazing mexican food, and of course, the best thrift shopping ever! Here are a few highlights...
