Strap happy. This shirt design was inspired by the river Tevas were born on and the epic campouts and festivals they often attend.
A VERY ELOI WEDDING
This fine couple approached me to use the DLB Acid scarf and digital pattern to add some color to their wedding. It made its way in all the way from the "save the date" mailers to a simple knot around the brides bouquet.
HOTEL SAINT CECILIA
This scarf was inspired by the idiosyncratic interiors of the Saint Cecilia— referencing the ubiquitous penny tiles and Persian rugs; HSC's love of peacocks and celestial motifs, and Mick Jagger-esque lips for a *kiss* of rock and roll (sorry I had to...........).
BOWER RESORT '17
Bower swimwear reached out needing a pattern that evoked the 1970s Bob Mackie/Cher-inspired Resort 2017 collection.
Darioush Winery has a beautifully curated array of items in their shop, yet needed more customized, different objects to sell than wine openers and glasses etc. We worked to incorporate the traditional flora of the Persian run winery-- pistachios, grapes and the pomegranate trees that line their entrance.
ACE HOTEL NEW ORLEANS
My thoughts of New Orleans veer mostly toward celebration (drinking, dancing, parades...). I also did some research on voodoo culture there and became inspired by "Li Grand Zombi", the major serpent spirit of worship, the holder of intuitive knowledge. Sacred voodoo ritualistic snake dances almost always include a snake to represent the spiritual balance between the genders and celebrate this ancient knowledge.
My alma mater recently opened their second museum, this one in Atlanta, focusing on fashion and film. I was commissioned to design a line of 5 scarves- a geometric, a floral, a film inspired, and two fashion inspired-- of which I chose to show motifs of the process (cutting and sewing) and that of fashion accessories.
COLUMBUS MUSEUM OF ART
CMA approached me before the opening of their newly built wing to do two custom scarf designs. They sent books of the works in their permanent collection and the plans for this new, very modern wing. The vast difference between these styles prompted me to do one scarf in the style of the more traditional, painterly works and the other emphasizing the geometric angles of the new building in fresh, bright colors.
