Lela Rose Fall 2014

Yesterday morning was the happiest of mornings. I woke up still reeling from a magical Saturday night with friends and family celebrating our engagement and somehow got my swollen feet back into my heels and headed up town for the Lela Rose fashion show. Nothing kicks the usually unavoidable Sunday fatigue like Lincoln Center during fashion week, waiting in the darkened salon in a sea of floating iPhone screens for the lights to suddenly burst to life with a surge of awesome music and beautiful fashion floating past.

I have come through an arc of feelings about fashion week - intimidation when I first moved to New York later gave way to indifference as it became a regular occurrence. And now finally with a few years of perspective under my belt, I can safely say I love it - whether I'm invited or not. It really is an inspiring aspect of life in New York.

Lela's show was feminine and wearable and made me question every outfit I've already bought for my wedding. Congratulations to her and her team on a beautiful fall collection!

kate spade fall 2013

Hello! Here are some of my sketches from last Friday's kate spade fall 2013 presentation. It was such a fun way to start the weekend. The snow was just beginning to fall outside, and as I walked into the show space I felt like I was in a happy bubble of bright lights and music and color. I loved the big, bright bags, sparkly pointed pumps and big hair.

I sketched these when I got back to the studio after the event while watching the snow get thicker and thicker outside, but I wish I'd brought my sketch book to the show to capture them on site, I felt a little empty handed next to all the bloggers with their huge cameras!

once upon a runway

This is an illustration I created for my favorite boutique/second home, Urban Chic to help them celebrate their 4th annual fashion show benefiting the American Visionary Arts Museum.

The show is named "Once Upon a Runway" so they asked me to combine Shoshanna's fall line with a theme of mythical, fairytale beauty and this is what I came up with.

Good luck to the UC girls at the fashion show next week!

Remember that episode of the office? One of my faves. Anyway... behold this cute little logo for the Urban Chic Fashion Show 2011 Urban Chic is my absolutely favorite place to shop in Georgetown. Seriously, its like my second home. I even worked there for a summer when I first graduated and promptly spent every penny I earned on clothes there. They have launched a yearly fashion show that has been a huge hit each year and I am sure this show will be just as great. Their theme is sort of a play on the styles of the 70's, but with a modern, urban, chicness to it of course. The show is going to be held at the American Visionary Art Museum in Baltimore this fall. Follow Urban Chic on the book to get updates about the show if you are in the area!
