A PhotoJEANic Shoot with a JEANius Photographer

There’s something incredible about the creative process. A spark of inspiration takes an idea from your brain to a sketch on paper and with proper tools you can materialize it into something tangible. It’s not until I find a sketch of a finished project that I realize how mind blowing it is to birth an object from my brain into reality. The only thing … Read More A PhotoJEANic Shoot with a JEANius Photographer

Upcycled Denim Trench Dress: Conquering a Rough Patch(work)

I was eager to pursue fashion after sewing my first upcycled project. I researched Seattle’s fashion scene and found Chance Fashion, a non-profit which organized monthly runways for new or up-and-coming fashion designers. I saw an Alternative Fashion & Clubwear runway on their calendar and paid to reserve my spot immediately.

When I think of denim, I imagine stiff, durable, or rugged textures so there was no way to know how comfortable and plush this pillow turned out. The chevron pattern is an immediate draw, making the pillow easy on the eyes. I especially love the way the … Read More Denim Throw Pillow || Upcycled Denim

Denim Pillow Teaser || Upcycled Denim

Denim is such an underrated material, typically used as pants or a jacket (shoutout to the Canadian tuxedo). I’m obsessed with putting denim where it doesn’t belong (see also: denim trenchcoat) so today I present a peek at a denim throw pillow. I just finished production and filming behind-the-scenes footage, so a “making of” video and a detailed post will be available once I … Read More Denim Pillow Teaser || Upcycled Denim
