We are signed up for Western Canada Fashion Week on March 28th!! Doors open at 7 pm with the show to follow at 8 pm at the Transalta Arts Barn in Edmonton!
For this show we are writing a short story inspired by several Celtic myths we love. Shortly before the show we will share the summery of the story and later this year the full story to go along with all the runway photos. We decided to do this instead of a real collection since many of our pieces are so vastly different from each other. Also because each signature piece we make is usually based on a character we either made up or on a story we wrote that included the character.
Recently, we were published in January’s edition of Gilded magazine out of California. This photo shoot was also based on a short story we wrote.
We were lucky enough to meet a kindred spirit who really understands the stories and inspiration behind our pieces. The photographer (Breanne Marie Photography) captured the story line well through her photos! She has been amazing to collaborate with and you can check out more of her beautiful work here.
We will do a full blog post with the story and all the photos from the shoot soon! But for now below is one that we love of model Jen ferguson.
We are also very fortunate to have my sister, Ashley, as part of our team. We will be creating a line of complementary (to our items) stencils for airbrushing makeup by this summer!!
You can check out Ash's other work on her website http://skrockimakeupartistry.weebly.com

We were also featured in a local in print and digital magazine, T8N, with a photo essay. This shows never seen before shots of our studio, inspirations, quick drawings and water colour tests of various pieces we make. We asked one of our favourite models Carra Pischke to join us for the shoot! The interview was done by the editor Carmen and the photo essay portion was done by Brenda Lakemen out of St. Albert. For anyone interested in checking out a bit about our studio and a little bit about the makers of all these item T8N Magazine (March edition) is available on their website! For those that live in Edmonton or St. Albert the magazine is at dozens of different locations free of charge for pick up. A full list of available places is located on their website! Here is a link to the feature with the full print version at the bottom

Lastly we recently changed the pricing on our website to US dollars to be included on social media like “Pinterest.” This now makes all our items pinable! For our Canadian customers this just means you will see the Canadian amount on your bill. If you want to purchase in Canadian dollars you can also do that through our Etsy shop!
Details to follow soon about other photoshoots and publications!!
