The No Name Collection
When you feel something deeply, a feeling that you can no longer ignore, it gives way to movement. I spent the beginning of the year taking time to paint and dance. This desire came out of the creative void. Color is what moves me and i wanted to sit with it, and to play with it. This collection has pushed me to trust my creative voice, even if it feels like I'm breaking the mold. Thank you for taking a moment to share in this work, My model, Ara, truly brought this collection to life.

As it goes in life, sometimes the fluidity of inspiration pushes you down the rabbit hole. In the rabbit hole, i found the moving images of James Van Der Zee. From there, I dug through photographs from the '20's and '30's and loved the freedom and sexuality women portrayed during this time period. They broke the mold of previous expectations. The deep jewel tones, velvets, and hand beaded dresses provided the texture and color story for this collection. Vagabond Lover is named after a jazz standard from 1929. I photographed my model, Liz, with a 35mm film camera. I wanted to evoke the nostalgia of times past. This collection is dedicated to the women who break down barriers.
*Shout out to liz, my model, for not only agreeing to do just that but also offered her 1890's cabin as a set.
