“Oh, it’s delightful to have ambitions. I’m so glad I have such a lot. And there never seems to be any end to them- that’s the best of it. Just as soon as you attain to one ambition you see another one glittering higher up still. It does make life so interesting.”
The feisty, funny and above all unabashedly passionate Anne of Green Gables is a red-headed, freckle faced orphan who faces the world with absolutely nothing but the sheer force. She is the inspiration for the fall + holiday line – her adventures with her newfound friends feels similar to my life this past year as I started a new chapter as a non-corporate, passionate lingerie designer and sewing teacher. A century after being written, Anne continues to be a role model for myself and other women. Inspired by this fictional character, I created up pieces that are meant to encourage women to stand up for what they believe in, have courage, and own their style and lingerie.
A few weeks ago, Carina of Love Me Do Photography and I collaborated on an inspirational shoot. We shot at a new hotel opening soon in Philly (link below) and created a super moody bed and bath scene. Jungle fever!
It’s truly been a pleasure to see these pieces come to life – from an idea to actual garments to eventually being sold in boutiques and stores. Maybe patterns too, but I’ll leave you hanging on that one ; )
Styles coming July 2017
