So excited to share with you, a new collection and lookbook!
These shots were taken at the beautiful New England home of my grandparents. They designed and built it in the 1970’s. As soon as I finalized this collection, I could only picture doing the lookbook in this house. The colors and vibe were perfect. All the paintings seen throughout were done by my talented grandmother, Patricia Olean.
(see below to read about my design process for this collection)
I created this collection by really doing a long, intense study on almost everything I’ve previously created. Sizes, texture, colors, functions; it can all be so overwhelming. Im at a point now where I know a lot of people who own several of my products. I spoke with many of them asking their opinion; which styles they use the most, and what they are used for. I found out some interesting information! I also did a complete rummage of all my materials, and past samples, re-examining old prototypes and ideas. If I had tons of space I would definitely be a hoarder of supplies, and keep every item I’ve ever made, but I can only store so much in my Brooklyn apartment. So, I got rid of almost everything; it was tough, but I feel like it really cleared my head to start fresh, keeping the ideas and moving forward with them.
