The Spring collection is almost completely in the store now.
My creative process this year involved a lot of cutting and pasting and collage-ing with a glue stick and small scissors. I felt like I was making clothes for paper dolls. It was the first time we had ever done anything like this in the studio, but it allowed us to visualize and plan so that the whole collection fit together better than ever.
You can see my little notes where I was planning how many items to cut of what size in which colour.
This year’s process also included a spiritual connection to all our wishes and hopes and desires. The women on my team, including my mother, each told me three things they would wish for the world if they could change anything they wanted. These wishes/blessings were then assigned to individual garments. Below you can see the note “Celebrating Native Women” on the long feather dress.
Come and see for yourself. The store looks more beautiful than ever! I am crazy proud of this year’s collection and all the magic that will flow out into my community.
