Digital Fashion Sketching

My Digital Fashion Sketching Odyssey…….


y’all know that I am OBSESSED with analog: pencil and paper, clay, earth, mess, texture, touch, crumble, wrinkle and smudge. My private Soulful Fashion Foundation Immersion Intensive program is totally electronic-free (immmm except, of course, that it takes place on the web…..), focused on watercolors, papers, pencils, fabrics.

Fall is upon us!

I know it’s still in the 80’s in most places, but it was 40 degrees on Friday in Denver. The weather definitely got me in the mood for knits, boots, and lots of textures. I recently purchased many items online and put this rack together. Cropped sweaters and oversized everything is in this season. From boyfriend jeans to an oversized pea coat, the more comfy the better. Look out for a lot of pastels this season. It’s not just for summer anymore, but you know I always have to toss a bit of those Burberry hues. I hope this post helps you find the do’s for this year’s A/W season. Until next time! Xoxo
