Spring Patchwork

I can't believe it is yet another year and a new collection of prints!
I dug deep into my old boxes of photocopies and random inspiration. I have always loved the photocopier. I love to distort, blow up and morph images. I am currently cutting paper shapes and creating collages for my new designs.

Patchwork, quilting, rugs, and geometry back to my textile roots!

One of the many interesting images from my favorite book: Soviet Costumes and textiles 1917-1945. I love all the prints!


Work in progress!



CUTTING


MORE CUTTING.....


I love this image! Pattern everywhere!

Pattern people!

A LITTLE HELP FROM SOME FRIENDS:

I was recently mentioned in the New York Times blog T. MAC: Modern Appealing Clothing based in Hayes valley had a nice article written up about them and mentioned Serial Cultura. MAC is a great store (my favorite!!!) and run by amazing people! Ben and Chris Ospital are very kind and supportive of local artists and designers. They also have amazing international designers and some of my favorites such as Tsumori Chisato, Zucca, and Martin Margiela. How flatterning for my line to hang with the best! Serial Cultura will be in the MAC store coming this May. Click on the article below to read about MAC!

SERIAL CULTURA LADIES!

Not sure who out there owns a dress, top, or scarf of mine?
I would love to feature and meet the stylish people out there that own a Serial Cultura garment. Rachel Hayes is a good friend of mine. We studied Textiles/Fiber at the Kansas City Art Institute. She is now living with her Husband (a painter) in NYC. She makes amazing installations with plastic, fabric, and vinyl. Eric her husband is also talented painter. I love their work! She is wearing one my printed dresses from my very first collection. I would love to get an email of anyone wearing Serial Cultura! Check Rachels and Erics blog here: The Life Pursuit
