Introducing the Cacti print - direct to you from my trip to Phoenix, Arizona a few months back :) Yes, many of my prints come from trips around the world, and this one is no exception.

Fabrics and ready-made products are avail on Spoonflower.com or Roostery.com as "akHOME" - what can you imagine with this print??! With the help of amazing local fashion designer, Kim Legler, I made a skirt that was perfect poolside in Palm Springs (see below)!!

Can't wait to see YOUR creations - be sure to tag #MYakHOME #artfulelements!

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!
