Fall/Winter is Here!

After the photo shoot a few weeks back, I knew the shots were going to be great because I had such a fabulous team working with me! My lil’ sis took her knowledge of fashion (from her personal style and her new job at Buckle) and mixed with her vast collection of jewelry to help accessorize the amazing Claire Shillingburg and Dylan Solon who modeled that day. Katherine Rally did, hands down, the most amazing hair and make-up! She always does good work, but this one took the cake. (took the cake… takes the cake… whatever, it was outstanding).

Kat’s amazing work!

My boyfriend scoped out the perfect location, my dad set the stage and my mom kept us fed! Lets not forget about Mark Bappert who was busy taking video and last, but not least, (because without her it there would be nothing) Vanessa Buholzer of VKB Photography! We’ve worked together on many shoots and she is always amazing. Her editing after the shoot made the pics even more dramatic.

Inspired by the Grunge Music movement that started in Seattle in the early 90s, I was going for a more melancholy, dramatic, “I don’t give a flying f*ck” kind of look. We achieved that in spades and I couldn’t be more proud to show my new collection, ‘Beautiful, Dark Days’ to the world!

The pieces are titled after 90s grunge songs and its a mix of plaid, winter wear, lace and edge. Along with the dirndls, trachten shirts and skirts you’ll find pieces like the “Come as You Are” sweater and “Deep Refection” pants that bring a great mix of ready-to-wear with the German style garments.

I seriously could look at the website home page with the rotating pics for days. I hope you enjoy this new collection as much as I loved creating it! All of the pieces are available online and (for sure after thanksgiving) you can make an appointment to come stop by the studio and see the garments in person.

Thanks for reading… here’s my fav shot from the whole shoot for you to enjoy!
