It's been kind of a crazy year, so far. I've spent quite a lot of time getting my parents moved into an assisted living community. Unless you've been through the process, it's hard to describe what all that entails. If you've bought a house, it's kind of like that. But more paperwork. We got them moved and they're happy. And now I've immersed myself into designing.
I'm trying some new things. Started designing my own fabric from swatches of mixed silk prints. Then I drafted a simple pattern for a flowy tunic. The tunics include a sash that can cinch you where you like to be cinched.
For the first time ever I've been drawn to shades of blue. I think it all goes back to my trip to Casa Azul in Mexico City. So there are mixes of cobalt, indigo and sky blue splashed among the golden orange and yellow tones.
I'm calling this Spring Summer 2014 collection When Cultures Collide. Here are a few sneak peeks at what I've worked on so far. I'll be hosting a trunk show on Thursday, May 15th from 2-6pm. Mark your calendars!!
