princess lasertron f/w 2012 – photos from omaha fashion week

I’m so excited to see these first photos coming in from the Omaha Fashion Week show last Friday where I showed my fall/winter collection. These photos were taken by my friend Greg Higgins during the show–be sure to visit his website to see more of his great work throughout the week.

The girls walked to Len’s Steal My Sunshine and Your Woman by White Town. So maybe cue those up before you scroll through the pictures. After the final parade, I sang a few bars at the end of the runway.

The inspiration for this collection was Kay Thompson’s character Eloise as a teenager. Stealing lipstick and eyeliner testers from the counters at Saks. Her expensive dresses and skirts rumpled on the floor. Slamming her door at the Plaza Hotel and lying to Nanny about spending the night with a friend. You know she’s going to Harvard, but what would she wear with her bad, ungrateful attitude?

These photos are from Greg Higgins. You can also visit the Omaha Fashion Week gallery from Muller, Lomneth, and Conces to see more photos from the week. There is so much talent in Omaha–the people power required to put on one successful show is gigantic, and OFW brings it all together into one well-produced week all tied up with a bow. It was a pleasure to showcase my work in their show for the last three years.

As more pictures come in I will be sure to share them!

Father’s Day 2015

It seems like the older I get, the more grateful I am for your influence, wisdom, and positivity...as you predicted often when I was growing up, to my fervent disbelief. Your devotion and love for my mom, my brother, and me is unmatched as my most influential example of stability, comfort, and family. You are never short on time, love, advice, or a moving truck when I need it. Not everyone I know is so fortunate, and it’s just amazing luck that you got my mom pregnant after you met doing Peter Pan at the Blair Community Theater. ...That turned out really well for me.

Ten Things I Learned From my Best Friend xRahRahx

My business partner Sarah is known for being full of kindness, compassion, and patience, but my favorite thing about working with her is that she has me constantly dying every single day because she is one of the most hilarious people in history. Besides just having lots of laughs, I feel like I've experienced a lot of growth thanks to her influence over the past few years. These lessons including but not limited to...

An open letter to restless young entrepreneurs who can’t wait any longer

“Follow your passion” is not exactly great advice, right? How is it helpful when you are trying to "follow" "something" but not really living? It’s not that I’m passionate about embroidering felt or coworking or helping independent designers gain exposure. I’m passionate about being independent and having freedom, and this is the means I’ve found to achieve that. A mentor of mine says that there is an art to finding success through entrepreneurship or freelancing, and that has to do with finding the overlap between what you like to do and what other people are willing to pay for. Not everything is marketable, he says (though some would disagree). On top of being useful and interesting to consumers, I think you have to be remarkably, extraordinarily good at what you do, which is only possible if you like what you do. You have to find your real motivation, because there is always going to be someone in the world working twice as hard as you for the same thing.

A Pretty Bridal Bouquet Inspired by “Dusty Jewel Tones”

About a month ago I was contacted by a bride to create a bouquet inspired by a muted, pretty palette of rich colors. I loved the combination and was excited to take on another bridal client, which led me to finish the bouquet (plus a few bonus boutonnieres) within a few weeks. It was nice to be working on flowers again, and I followed my whim and inspiration to do things a little bit differently this time. Each flower and leaf is much more highly embellished than work I have done in the past, and I created more types of flowers (many of them found in my book, Fabric Blooms) to arrange into the bouquet.

Embroidered Things for Rebecca

Lately I've been embroidering really small things--portraits, simple objects, flowers, but much more detailed things, and all at about three inches square. I made these three pictures and framed them for my friend Rebecca Forsyth on her birthday today.
