spring at workshop!
here it comes! As the weather begins to thaw, and the sun peaks out again, the city of Chicago begins to come alive! I am so excited for the summer! I have so many plans for workshop and how to make it the sweetest little shop on the south side. I have a bunch of new pieces from local designers and other conscientious designers around the country. Abigail Glaum-Lathbury who happens to be another Alum of SAIC is a very talented designer with a really unique perspective on patterning. Her innovative cuts tend to create sculptural effects with fabric while flattering the form. She is a lovely gal, and I am pleased as punch to have a nice assortment of her spring collection available at workshop.
Another exciting addition to workshop's lineup: the airy and romantic pieces by my gal Kee Edwards of Loup Charmant. Kee describes the pieces as "lounge wear" whether contimplating the light-as-air dresses or the adorable bloomers, I definitely day dream about lounging somewhere near the sea in these gorgeous organic cotton bits...
I have also been scouring the nooks and crannies to find cool vintage jewelry to sell along with the clothing (accessorizing is half the battle)- and have lots of cool sterling silver earrings, wooden beaded necklaces, and other unexpected finds like a slew of woven leather belts!
