In 2021, Renee Hollingshead photographed the petite atelier for Baltimore Weddings' Maker Space, which can be seen in the Spring/ Summer 2022 magazine and on the Baltimore Weddings website. I began working from my home studio, just as the pandemic began in 2020. It's compact and well organized... just the way I like it. But please note that it is much fuller than it was during this photo shoot and it's just about time for a new studio space outside of my residence. In preparation for the photo shoot, I immediately ordered this fresh baby's breathe cloud from Bohemian Branches. I LOVE baby's breathe flowers and this cloud felt essential for the space. Even after the flowers dried, its presence is a joy when entering the petite atelier. Lee Alexander McQueen is one of my FAVORITE designers. His work and the current fashion house designs are inspirational and motivational. After viewing the McQueen movie at The Senator Theatre, a historic movie theatre in Baltimore, Maryland, I asked for the poster. A few years passed before I figured out the right use for it, but after cutting out the face I decided it was a perfect fit for a wall in the petite atelier.
In October 2021, I had the pleasure of chatting about tulle skirts with the fashion editor of Off Duty, The Wall Street Journal. We discussed my personal aesthetic and tips for styling a tulle skirt; however the primary focus was "punk ballerina," an emerging style known for presenting tutus with a whole lot of edge. Check out what I shared in the Style & Fashion article.
