This is the beginning of an ongoing series of exploration called "The Leftovers".
Coming off of planning and creating a show for a NYFW collection I spent months sewing myself, even with the help of my amazing friends, left my head empty so to speak. I had no desire to start another collection even three months after. But! I still wanted to make stuff... something even if it wasn't clothes. So instead of forcing myself out of that mindset I leaned into it and moved away from fully fabric pieces just to see where I could go. Thus here we are!
After making three headpieces out of Benjamin Moore paint chips and my old business cards, you'll see I finally felt like sewing garments again! But it wouldn't have come if I didn't take the break.
