fall 2013

the fall collection is about to launch, so i think its fitting to make the first blog post about my design process for the collection. there is so much love that goes into creating a new collection and most people only ever see the end result.  i feel inspired to start sharing the journey with anyone who wants to listen/watch/feel!
i always keep a journal and i've included various clippings from my fall 2013 design diaries.
