A Garment+DNA=Thoughts About Who I Am

As part of cleaning up my “hot mess”,  I have followed through and just completed 3 out of my five overdue doctors appointments. I have been very lucky with finding some wonderful women primary care docs but they always seem to move up to the suburbs to be closer to...

Chasing the Sun.

Last night Calvin and I had the best time shooting. We began very late, around 7:00 PM, and began to chase the sun as it traveled west, getting ready to set. It presented us with a creative challenge and I realized those are the moments when something really quite...

Inspiration: Take offs and Landings

Shirt: Mango, Jeans: Jbrand, Shoes: Tibi, Earrings: Dinosaur Designs, Sunglasses: Ferragamo Perhaps it is because I have been doing so much traveling, but my styling inspirations have veered between two poles: light where I feel as though I am flying up into the sky...

Sometimes In The Presence Of, You Find the Absence

Last Friday, late at night as I was packing yet again, I found myself crying and just not wanting to leave home. It stemmed from being overtired and a really busy schedule the month before. Now after the trip I was so teary about is over, I am so happy I went. I flew...

A Life of Letters

I have spent the entire month of shedding ending up having more work and the only shedding that has been on mind is how I might “shed” academia. I have been filled with ambivalence about that decision even though it is clear to me that something must give if I am to...

Taking On Your “Red”

Today I had my first design process class at NYSD. Rather than start with a garment that inspires me and around which I create a total look, now I must learn to create from a concept. Our first assignment is to identify a setting that will become our concept and then...

A Boyish Look

Maybe it is because of my new haircut, perhaps a need to be a little naughty, or maybe it's related to what I keep hearing has happened to women, but I have been feeling like I want to be a scrappy, bratty boy. Though never completely crossing over to tomboy because I...

Designer Wednesday: Re;Code

Above you will see the design sketch that was sent to me by the designers at Re;Code. As you can see, on the left are the garments I sent. The black wool (A) was a consignment store CDG piece that never quite fit me the way I would have liked. I wore it only once or...
