Inspiration Corner: New York City

Wow Susan, so inspired by all the beautiful products and colorways coming out of the Lady BIM studio! Very exciting.  

I cannot believe two weeks have already passed since arriving in Brooklyn. My senses are constantly bombarded with stimuli that inspires, provokes, and even makes me retract at times. Families are starting to put little gourds and pumpkins outside their beautiful brownstones and the pangs of a season in flux are undeniably felt. I am thrilled for the arrival of Autumn and am curious to see what the fashionable folk of New York will be wearing. I will be heading to several craft fairs and pop-ups in the near future as well as arranging some studio visits with some wonderful textile artists and design collectives in the city. Lots to look forward to. Hope you enjoy some of my moments from this past week. 

Leaves are beginning to change from green to reds and oranges and this girl is very excited! Susan, this could be a wonderful colorway to explore in the studio and could serve as some nice motif inspirations...
