Gone Riding

It's not often I get the chance to go riding anymore, but when I do I go for it!

Best day ever!

Sneak Peek

A quick shot at who knows what time at night of the first 3 we had finished.

Tonight and Today

Connor Dodd and Clayton Verdoorn are not only wonderul hosts to out-of-towners such as myself but they're also wonderfully gifted artists.

Check out their work here.

Check it out, leave some love, inquire about pricing, they're going to be huge, you heard it here first!

Back So Soon

It's true Savannah does at some point or another pull you back in. It seemed I just got settled back in NYC when I was called back down. I was commissioned by my alma matter to design and create 10 Caftans honoring the legendary André Leon Talley and his lifetime achievement award winners. Always up for a challenge I of course accepted and thus began on an adventure I won't ever forget.

The video can be viewed here.

I'll post pictures as soon as I receive them. Until then enjoy the video.

Unmeasurable thanks to Ginny Branch Stelling, Jeff Dickhaus, Molly Dunbar and John Gardner for all your hard work and support. This would have not been possible without all your help! Thank you.

All my love to Rebecca Gardner and Susie Mascotte, for thinking of me, making this happen and making sure me and my team had everything we needed! Thank you ladies so much!

Thank you to Paula Wallace and the rest of the SCAD staff and family, I look forward to many more adventures!

What a whirlwind!

In the brief moments of free time we had, I snapped a few more photos of the southern charm Savannah possesses that I didn't know I missed so much.

And Thank You Kelsey Grammer.

SCAD Style Week

I was lucky enough to be invited down to Savannah to moderate the lectures of Michael Schmidt, Sally Brunger and Victoria Bartlett for SCAD's Style Week. It was great to be back, to visit some of my old stomping grounds, tour the facilities, and catch up with old friends. It was a wonderful trip, I have so many stories but I'm going to have to plead the 5th: what happens in Savannah, stays in Savannah! Instead Ill share some pictures I took.

The lecture I moderated was held in the student center, formally a synagogue. SCAD does the most wonderful work with historic buildings.

The space at soundcheck before our audience arrived.

The view of the ceiling after I fainted as time came closer to speak.. just kidding!

The lecture was a great success and in the end was more fun then nerve-racking.

In my free time I enjoyed walking Forsyth Park and taking in all the southern charm Savannah has to offer.

Though lots has changed, some things stayed the same.

My trip ended with a beautiful dinner party in the courtyard of an old jail house turned SCAD athletics offices. The lanterns are of course work of SCAD Alumni.

Already looking forward to my next trip back!
