The Penny Rose

I recently was interviewed by writer Christa Martin. She’s awesome and her blog is really great for insight into beauty products, trends, and fashion. Her scope of coverage extends beyond Santa Cruz and includes San Francisco and New York, which is the perfect way for a local Santa Cruzian to feel connected to the bigger picture.

The Dreamer's Dress

“….it is better to have a little of the best than to be swamped with the derivative, the careless, the routine.” — Robert Bringhurst

Let’s slow down for a second and pay attention to the details, the textures. Let’s create something the old fashioned way – with thought, with care. Let’s choose quality over quantity. Let’s use our minds and our imaginations and our hands to make something honest.

When we do this, we build a story. Each garment is designed and created this way. My hope is that every piece becomes a treasure to be admired and worn for years to come.
