EVENT | LBDGala 2017

I can't even begin to describe the honor of becoming a supporter of the Little Black Dress Gala, and their charitable base, Help Change My City. Little known fact - although I was in art classes for-ev-er as a young'un, my first conscious use of art on my own was to design fabrics + dresses! I still remember the thrill of my creations on the runways in high school, and all the grad dresses I designed that my Aunt had to painstakingly design patterns for (thanks, Aunty!). BUT, somehow I traded it in for a drafting scale and headed into a career in Architecture. It's only recently I've returned to fabric prints - and I'm LOVING it!!

For LBDGALA S/S '17 myself along with fabric collaborator, Interior Designer extraordinaire and all-around fashion icon Aleem Kassam donated some beautiful Gemma Black fabric to 6 incredible local Fashion Designers and they did not disappoint! Be sure to follow all of these talented designers, and stay tuned - we're gearing up for LBDGALA F/W17 as we speak!

SHOP | Featuring the #JOUExKAI Fraser Pillow

The Fraser Solid/Stripe pillow has just been added to our SHOP!

We're IN LOVE with this original artwork collaboration between JOUE Design + Kendall Ansell Interiors. Based on Kendalls love of wisteria, this artwork evokes the gorgeous botanical in the setting dusk light. AND - it's reversible! The SOLID fabric side (shown below) portrays the gorgeous clustering blooms while the STRIPE side brings out the unique weeping qualities of the plant.
