Inspiration - Magical Photography of Tim Walker

Magic gives us the ability to imagine and to change. It opens up a world of infinite possibilities, connecting us with the child we were and still are. Tim’s Photography style of a fairy-tale world and out of the ordinary situations is a light hearted and whimsical source of inspiration

Viva la Juanita!

We wanted to thank our friend Juanita who agreed to modeling the collection for our look book and this website. We met Juanita from working together in the past and remained friends ever since. She’s a very talented designer who is not only beautiful on the outside but on the inside as well. Thank you Lovely Lady!

Renaissance Postergirl

I drew these illustrations on my computer during the design stage because that's how I saw the look developing. I wanted to draw them in a poster style similar to Patrick Nagel and called it "renaissance poster girl". The name represents a rebirth or a re-awakening of the past that is prevalent in our Spring 2010 collection. Doing a lot of graphic work in my past, poster style art has always been most interesting to me for it's control and strong graphic qualities. Even though the girls have a modernized look the overall energy reminds me a bit of Carré Otis back in the 80's. - E -

Phoenix Rising Dress

Inspiration - Patrick Nagel

As a child I plastered my bedroom walls with these posters, and I remember thinking, wow…these women look so strong and beautiful. I wanted to be like them, even though they were just a drawing. I will always identify his imagery as being representative of the best part of the 80’s for their powered self-improving sentiments.  - E -

Tony the Tigerrrr

Here's a self portrait of the photographer Tony. He went old school style and shot Juanita on film. Many props to his keen eye and dedication!

Welcome Karin and Tony's beautiful angel Bowie Grace. She was born May 23rd.  Maybe we will launch a little girls line next and call it "Bowie Grace".  She's destined  to be a little  fashionista!

our little short stack.... more pics to come!

Some Random Art

I did these back in February. We needed some imagery for the brand book but didn't really have anything. I love mixing vector with photos. -E-
