Do you live in Williamsburg? Lucky you! Go get your vintage Schwinn and cycle over to Mini Mini Market - I just dropped off some of those glorious Summer Clutches I mentioned a few days ago. I’ve long been a customer of theirs and Shoe Market, so I am very excited to be working with them with my new goods!

Yep, that’s me, according to Catherine Blair Pfander of NBC New York’s The Thread. Catherine came over to my work/live and we had some pecan pie from The Blue Stove and chatted about what I’m up to. Check the whole article HERE
To quote Ronald Reagan “Surround yourself with the best people you can find…”- once again I totally lucked out with a fantastic team to work on my Fall/Winter Lookbook shoot. Much much love to all that worked on it!! Shot in my hood of Williamsburg, imagine if you will the song below playing as this shoot is going down.

Geeeeeeeet ready, this is the first photo in of ‘Finders Keepers’
This collection I found hardware/zippers/thread/bindings all in places I hadn’t considered before. Finding bindings in a shoe repair outlet, thread from an old-school tailor on the L.E.S. and swivel snaps meant for horse leads. It’s all about opening your eyes and looking deep into places unknown.
Shot in Williamsburg with a salute to NY, my original catalyst for starting the whole line with people who continue to be my muse. As you’ll see each piece has a christian name – these are for my friends who unknowingly provide me with inspiration. Get ready to meet Laura/Katie/Jessica and Ramiro.

We shot F/W out and about in Williamsburg today and I feel so lucky to have such a great wealth of talented friends who for a dozen oysters, truffle fries and several beers (mmm Five Leaves) will help me out. A big big thank you and I can’t wait to show you how it came out.
In between holding reflectors and lenses I played around with my camera.
One of my favourite jewelry designers will be trunking their show at Homemade Brooklyn this coming Monday April 26th. Can’t wait to see what they have!
I’m joining the revolution that is the pop-up. Care of Homemade Brooklyn I’ll be participating in April’s shift around the BK. Save on shipping and walk yourselves via the L Train (Lorimer stop) to:
