The Love Yourself Event at Tabula Rasa

22 Feb

store

Just before Valentine’s Day I collaborated on an event with one of the best boutiques in the east end, Tabula Rasa.  The “Love Yourself Event” featured my jewellery line Hibou and I was there customizing necklaces on the spot while TR was debuting some of the their new must-have spring pieces.  Here are some pics from the night!

Here I am in my favourite shirt that I hand-shredded while watching too many episodes of my ultimate guilty pleasure, Star Trek: TNG. What am I looking at? Probably the delicious vegan cupcakes that are just in front of me.

Vintage dead-stock chain and stone bracelets.

One of the customizable Hibou pieces is the Mojo Bag.  Pick a stone that speaks to you, choose your re-purposed leather swatch, we prepare it, and you walk away feeling the positive vibes!

My newest collection is a mix of semi-precious stones, vintage and new chain and some really special charms.  It is still available for sale in Tabula Rasa and will be online really soon!

My Very First Design is Almost Done!

21 Jun

Here are some quick shots from my phone of my nearly completed skirt.  It’s the first garment that I designed and drew out, drafted a pattern for and sewed the whole damn thing.  The core of the skirt was made from military-grade black twill that I acid washed in an ombre-ish kind of effect. I thought I had ruined it at first but managed to save it and only get trace amounts of bleach in my eyes and lungs.  Then I charmed my uber-talented friend Jenn at Tabula Rasa into generously hooking me up with some vintage leather pants that I deconstructed and used for the back pockets and some piping in front.  In the back I added a double-ended zipper that can be adjusted to your desired slit size (and it can get slutty real real fast if you’re on the go).  Please ignore the shabby hem job, it’s the last thing I had to do!

Now I just have to design a top to go with it and some mannequin out there can be head to toe in Ursa Major.
