I finally started working on my project for a group show I'm in next month at Rogers Experimental House. The main theme is artists that work sustainably which fits into my practices since I work on thrifted/found materials. Basically I'm going to do a pseudo-store front; v minimal tho. I have some mirrors that I'm going to add text to and I'm almost done screen-printing a curtain for the fitting room type area. Mostly I've been thinkin about catholicism (stations of the cross and ten commandments), ader error's flagship store in seoul, and of course the over-saturated trends on instagram that just support disposable fashion. Getting dressed is one of the funnest parts of my day and can be a ritual in itself. Hopefully people will start thinking more about how one of the simplest parts of your day can have a lasting effect on the environment and those who actually make your clothing. If you are in the Northwest Arkansas area next month stop by the opening on February 8th to see my work alongside three other women working in sustainable art :-)
Hello, welcome to my hot first post of 2018!! So this year I'm gonna try and keep up with having collections...which I've tried before, but sometimes it's just easier to fling out pieces as I get them since it's hard for me to create a singular aesthetic. To start off the year I've created two new sections in the shop: "classix" and "daydreamer". The first is sort of minimalist staples...with some edge (i.e. skulls and chains balanced with lace). The latter has a bit more romance a.k.a florals, voluminous silhouettes, and charming purses. I'll be adding to them as the year progresses since the themes are broad and season-less; very important in an instagram era overrun by trends. Some of the pics are items already in the shop and some will be coming soon. My personal fave is the basket purse because I had previously found the exact same one. Except I took the last one to sephora, accidentally smeared lipstick all over it, and then spray painted it pink.
