Photoshoots & Fonts

Do you ever take the time to find the perfect writing font before you’re able to start writing? Like, by finding the perfect font the words will somehow flow through you just a bit easier then if you used the everyday “Helvetica” or “New Times Roman”? ….Nope, you are all reading this first line like I’m crazy, or nodding energetically thinking that someone finally gets them. I do friend. I do.  Now, on to more important things. As you can probably guess, I’m somewhat of a perfectionist (I know, weird.) so events like the photoshoot that happened today I really...


"Glamorous"

Rebecca Rowe

 Everyone knows what I'm talking about, when I say the "Glamorous side of fashion" Yeah, we're talking about the lights, camera, cocktails and heals so high that you're sure that if these girls were to trip their ankles would break. The truth is, well my truth is, that these events stress me out. In runways you've got months of prep for ten minutes of models walking down a runway. Which by the way, if they do trip and break their ankle it is NOT good publicity for me. Attending someone else's runway? Fighting jealousy, ripping those tights you're trying to...

The Design Process: Step One: Sketch till your fingers are black.

The design process, for me anyway, is the best part of starting a new collection. I mean, yes you get frustrated and I may or may not have scratched out more designs then I can count…may have thrown a sketchbook across the room a few times and it may have happened like once where I set some terrible sketches on fire. No one can prove that though so don’t judge, they just needed to go. I’ll let you decide if I’m kidding or not. It’s at this point though that you can really send your mind wandering. You can draw...


Getting Ready for Freewheeling Craft!

It seems like every week this month something is happening in the fashion world...I mean, it could be because every weekend something is happening in the fashion world. I'm not really sure, I do now that I am loving every second of it. One of the best parts of my job this week is getting to see my clothes styled by Katie at YOW City Style in preparation for this week's Freewheeling Indie Craft Show happening on Saturday October 22 from 10-4 at Makerspace North! The rest of this week is obviously hiding in my studio behind a sewing machine but...

Craft shows and Freak outs….I need coffee.

Craft shows and Freak outs….I need coffee. ….It’s raining…F*ck. The first thought that ran through my mind at the beginning of the weekend. Usually when there’s a craft show I go through the standard: Week before the show: Excitement, preparation, sewing, nothing really pressing on my mind. Day before the show: Mass freak out. Do I have enough stuff? Should I stay awake until four in the morning finishing that hem? But I mean, it would look weird if I’m missing one of those skirts. The entire day WILL be a waste if I don’t have that skirt….totally worth not...
