DAWN|DUSK Shirt

February 23, 2018

Dawn|Dusk is more than a recent collection; it's a concept to embody. This unisex tee is an extension of what birthed the line of accessories.

What We've Been Up To

September 20, 2017

My original plans for the summer were to begin to roll-out a new "Limited Edition" design each month along with several open-studio events and summer workshops. However, with a slower than expected spring and the dispersement of my incredible team of assistants (ending of semesters and beginnings of study-abroad programs), I instead decided to take a step back to evaluate.
