There are some really exciting things on the horizon. We are moving into our new home this weekend, which includes a beautiful new studio room for me! In two weeks I'm doing an all natural light photoshoot with the beautiful Mariah as my model, and Emily Hudson is doing the photography, and my friend Nani doing make-up. We are going to shoot 3-4 looks from my pre-fall collection.

During the break between Christmas and New Years, I'm going to have the pleasure of working with a fantastic team, including Michelle Matiyow of LM Studios and Rebecca Stevens, who is a fantastic stylist and also the new editor of 944 Magazine.

I am so excited for these photo shoots and to finally show off my post-college work.

Meet my new little baby! 12 week old Suz. :)
(Susan when she's being bad, Suzie when she's being cute.)

I get to pick her up on Monday!
Glad she likes clothes as much as I do. She really knows how to rock the hoodie.

New Press!

I'm excited to say that I'm in this month's issue of 944 Magazine. You can actually read it online by going to or just click here, and then search for the "Detroit" version. When viewing the magazine online, I'm on page 81! There is a designer profile on me. The magazine is free and can be found in various location around metro detroit, so look for it!

Following that, on page 82, is an article I wrote. I interviewed Terrance Sullivan, who is a local denim designer who just opened up a shop in Birmingham. He was a delight to talk to and very inspirational.

I was also mentioned by here. In which they just mention, that I was mentioned, in 944. Which is pretty funny.

yay for press! :)

This was by far one of the busiest and best October's ever! It seemed as if Halloween lasted forever. Working at a costume shop definitely has it's perks. I think I dressed up in a total of 6 different costumes throughout the last 2 weeks of October. Here are some of my favorites!

Evil pumpkin queen costume for Theatre Bizarre on 10.24 and again for Necto on 10.26

The last week before Halloween we had theme days at work - this was for "eras" day. Everyone swore I was 80's but I still stick to my guns on the fact that I'm definitely early 90's.

and my favorite of all - Halloween night I dressed up as an alien space vampire zombie girl from the 1970's - in true classic B-Movie style. Martin was a zombie red shirt from star trek. This fabulous dress i'm wearing is a vintage piece from Fantasy Attic's costume collection.

I am taking a brief hiatus from any designing or design orders or request until late November. We bought a new house and are closing on it November 10! So I don't expect to even begin any new design projects until late November/early December. But I'm contemplating concentrating soley on my wedding gown and my bridesmaid's dresses from here on out. But I'll play it by ear!

Happy November :)
