today is the first day of burning man. it's a place i'm sad to say i'm not going this year. it's a place of unimagined imagination, creativity and beauty. it inspires, awes, renews and rejuvenates me. it shows me the best of humanity. its a place to connect and find commonality with people from all walks of life and all corners of the world. i try to keep these things i value with me always, but a refresher each year doesn't hurt.
and of course i'm into the fashion, it's so amazing and inspiring.
i would love to make beautiful works of art like this everyday, you would wear this tree to work wouldn't you?

i had started a project of purging that got waylayed as other projects needed attention. today i was reading my favorite online magazine, this article caught my eye. i'm inspired once again to get working on those piles of clutter and mountains of fabric. i think a garage sale may be in order...

its been a really exciting few weeks with sewing the fall collection, the trunk show, and the latest - a photo shoot for about face magazine. the hobo dress will be in the next issue, due out around the 1st or 2nd week of september. i can't wait to see the photos the photographer took, i'm sure so much better than my grainy stand-ins, but i'm so happy i brought the camera and can share the experience. the staff, crew, and models were so amazing, professional, and helpful in putting this together. i look forward to many more collaborations with these people.

i've been working like crazy on the fall estate collection, which i'll show this friday at union rose. the top fabric is a super soft soy/organic cotton jersey, followed by a grey and yellow floral that's not too sweet of a floral, but has a macintosh rose influence, and then a dark stretch denim. here's just a little peek into the fabrics. more to come as i complete the other pieces.
