The Killers were KILLER!

February 17, 2009

The KILLERS, Yet another great band incorporating synth and 80’s electro, 70’s disco and new raw sounds.  If you don’t have any of  their albums, Day & Age is by far my favorite.  I had the awesome opportunity to see them February 4th at Nokia Theatre(One of my favorite venues Grand Prairie, TX) front and center.  The sound was flawless and crisp , their stage presence was distinct, and the lights OHHHHHHHHH! SO KILLER…Only one thing….. It was Dallas, TX not Grand Rapids…BRANDON!

The opening electro band M83, was a great opening act to get you in that EMO mood

I think I might just have some new ideas for Fall 09!

Inspired Lately?

October 30, 2008

 I always loved getting into artists’ heads about how they are inspired to create.  You never know when you are going to come up with an instant idea and for me, there is rarely a time when I can’t find something inspirational.  Most of my inspiration starts with an instant emotional connection or feeling.  That mood translates into my designs whether it is in the color, the silhouette, or overall theme of the collection.  Music usually starts my  journey into creation as I am constantly trying to find new genres and sounds that ignite the creative spark.  Let me know what inspires you…. in the mean time check out Goldfish my new favorite group at the moment!  They mix Dance beats with jazz, african, rag time,  and seventies performing all this live on the decks and any other instrument they can get their hands on!  You can bet I will be jammin  out to this while creating my new collection!

Fall 08′ Collection

October 21, 2008

This collection was compiled of ideas and inspiration from the dark medevil time period using  metal chaining, sequin accents and a dark rich color pallette.  My silhouettes are inspred bt the late 60’s and 70’s to create a new and innovative collection.
