Northwest Arkansas Fashion Week just hosted their first ever fall fashion week! It was at an airplane hangar at Drake Field in Fayetteville. It was a really cool venue for a runway show and I had a great time there! I'll share photos and video from my runway show as soon I get it but in the meantime, I did a couple really fun photoshoots with my collection with some local models and photographers. For one of the shoots we went to a grocery store, something I had always wanted to do. It was really fun and I think we got some very creative photos.

I did a collection of 20 looks called the Faces Collection. It was inspired by fashion and art from the 60s and 70s, especially art deco. I have always loved that era, perhaps because when I was growing up I loved looking at photos of my parents as young hippies... they looked so cool and stylish in their striped t-shirts, bellbottoms, and John Lennon sunglasses. I had a lot of fun exploring the theme of faces using various techniques: applique, embroidery, painting. I used a lot of black and white but also (as usual) I couldn't help myself and got very colorful as well. There's also some leopard print thrown in because you can't do 60s fashion without including leopard print (and imo it goes with everything). I styled the outfits for the following photos totally differently than for the runway show, just to keep things interesting.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Hello friends and neighbors, I hope you are having a stress free and delightful holiday week!

I just wanted to write a brief message about the sale I'm having right now. Almost everything in my shop is 50% off right now, until next Tuesday. Kind of a BlackFri-SmallBizSat-CyberMonday all mashed together. I have lots of great gifts under $20, some even under $10! Like my oilcloth makeup bags that come in bright fruit and floral prints, close with Velcro, and last literally forever, are $8.25 right now. You cannot beat that price. I also have jewelry, scarves, bamboo clothing, Frida Kahlo skirts, baby onesies, and more..... go check it out! www.rosierosedesigner.etsy.com

Stockings!! :)

Not included in the sale are my custom Christmas stockings, which there is only about a week left to order if you want one by this Christmas. Orders must be in by December 1st. They are absolutely wonderful and get rave reviews every purchase. Let me create your perfect stockings! Whatever you can imagine, I can bring to life! I really enjoy making the stockings too because it's a fun process, I get to use lots of different skills, applique, embroidery, painting, beading, sequins, couching (that's when you sew yarn down to make a pattern), and quilting. Here's a direct link to the stocking listing:
