Holiday Craft Shows and Pop-Up Boutique

It's been an absolutely busy month! I've been accepted to 2 Holiday Craft Shows and our very first Pop-Up shop for the Holidays. I haven't really been sleeping much as I've been trying to get the new collection ready for the shows, plus a booth display ready! I'll be posting a DIY later about my display for Smart Design Mart.

If you are in the Montreal area, come say hi!

Optical Illusions: Trompe l'oeil

Trompe l'oeil is the art of deception, perception and optical illusions to trick the eye.

People normally don't think of fashion designers as trompe l'oeil artists, (it's reserved for painters and graphic artists), but I can't help thinking that fashion designers are in this category too. We're often asked to make waists thinner, or a bust fuller with just a slight curvature of a design line or careful placement of seams. In a way, we are illusionists (the fashion industry did invent Vanity sizing and push-up bras).

I can't remember where I found these images, but they caught me off guard for just a second.

The Golden Hour

I love taking photos when the sun is just setting. Colors turn into warm golden hues at the first and last drop of sunlight during the day. These photos remind me of carefree summers and a heart full of adventure.

Time Out New York feature

Last week our Raven Feather necklace was featured in Time Out New York's web and print magazine. I just got the copy a few days ago and I must say, it's much cooler in print. If you want to check out the online article, it's here.

Day of the Dead: Día de los Muertos

If anyone can capture the beauty of death, it's Canadian fashion photographer, Lucyna DanUta Bakowska. Yes, she's Canadian and she's talented.

There's something strangely eery, yet entrancing about these photos. I don't know what she does with her camera or what kind of rabbit she pulls out of her hat, but these photos have me spellbound.
