Coming to the runway Friday, October 9th in Portland, Oregon at FashioNXT. My collection, ‘PIN ME / PIERCE ME’, has been a labor of love… lost love.
Each collection I make tells a story, imparting emotion, sincerity, and depth to my clothing, making them not just garments, not just fabric, but a tale from the heart. ‘PIN ME / PIERCE ME’ continues my tradition of emotive design, and has taken me down a beautiful road of healing, incorporating lace, roses, and a dash of heavy metal!
Promises made, promises broken ‘PIN ME / PIERCE ME’ is a collection based on the hopes of a promise that is only to be taken away. Inspired by the pinning of a woman by a man as a promise of pre-engagement in the 1950’s & 1960’s, ‘PIN ME / PIERCE ME’ combines romance and heartache; the optimism of being pinned with the devastation of having your heart pierced.
Continuing the story of my collection, I had sorority/fraternity pins made. Click here to to buy your own! These are made to be worn as a badge of pride, a badge of courage, a badge of strength. We have all had a heart full of promises emptied by one swift pierce. Tell me your tale and I will show you mine at FashioNXT on October 9th. Hope to see you there! Click here for tickets
