As summer nears it's end and cooler weather is on the horizon, I have been on a small buying spree of Wax-print "African" fabrics while I can still get the brighter color motifs. Their popularity has not diminished and my stock of dresses is quite depleted. I am also hedging against the winter months, when the color pallet is somewhat more somber, so I will have some essence of summer in my studio. I am also excited about branching out in terms of my sample sizes. While I have always made custom clothing for men and women in every size imaginable, my sample sizes have been on the small side. and I would like to experiment with some larger sizes .
This week I also went to a book signing for Robert Reitzfeld's Beautiful new book of his paintings and made a studio visit with Mary Jones to view her amazing paintings that will be included in an upcoming solo show. . .All very visually inspiring.
