Confidence, poise & pride! These young teens all seemed to be very comfortable speaking on stage about their looks & rightfully so! Their pieces were so amazing - who wouldn't be proud to show off their works of art?

Product development is tough. It is one of THE most FUN things I do because my heart and mind thinks in that way. How to best get something to drape on the body, how to showcase the artwork the best. It really is the tiny little tweaks that the customer may not realize but would definitely notice that they didn’t like it if it wasn’t done correctly. But man oh man.... getting my thoughts, desire and vision communicated in a way that the manufacturer understands AND can execute, well... its like playing a real life game of Pictionary, charades and the telephone game all at once. I am now going to read my Bible and recenter on this colorful journey the Lord has me on! (Breathe in, breathe out, repeat)

I’m so happy to share I’ve been involved in a beautiful collaboration with the wonderful team @nikelandsole creating a small collection of dreamy scarves for their SS18. The scarves are available in coming weeks through Ark Clothing Co stores and other gorgeous stockists nationally. Check the N + S website for all the details.

"I create soft, romantic and luminous artwork. Floating layers of lyrical marks and a French inspired palette speak to sun drenched nature and the passage of time". Click the link in our bio for the full Q&A with @micheleowenart
One last detail on day 5: elbow patches! This suit has it all.
TGIF! Just kidding!...
Every day is a work day when starting your own business. No rest til you’re the best.
But still, taking a sec to remember how damn nice it feels to soak up the summer sun
Currently working my butt off making new work & excited about what the future holds...
Including, among other things, a lil’ RnR
So, after getting some advice on my debut collection & how to streamline it, its now got a laser focus
This detail shot shows part of the felted Corsair Coat, which is 1 of the collection’s centerpieces!
Looking forward to showing you guys the whole thing once I’m ready to launch!
Until then, here’s a tiny sneak peek
Day 4 of this suit takes us back to a detail on the jacket. That button is handmade, folks!
I painted my first men's tie! It was fun to mix it up. The geometric structure lent itself to a more linear approach than I typically take with my scarves. What do you think?
It’s not a suit without pants!
Candy wrappers never looked so fashionable! #dumdums
Special Collaboration w/ gifted photographer Sarah Henderson who’s Polaroid & secret color mixing style is uniquely her own!
Such a fun project: trying to find a rhythm between movement, the body, color + fashion.
Shown here, Cowl Crop Top & Hand-painted Skirt, available by Special Order.

Spent my birthday in the only church i know. I must’ve cried in front of this Mary at least four times #yvessaintlaurent
Rarely do I show the whole look ️
Here’s the full 360° view of my hand-painted peekaboo dress
Sometimes in this global industry, it’s easy to get ripped off, especially when you’re new & unknown. So us creatives tend to carry our cards close. 🤫
But the way I see it: those who copy + steal will always be scrambling for the next good to swipe... while those with innovative ideas will ALWAYS have more coming.
So cheers to unique & #ethicalfashion DM for inquiries & special orders
