voltage favorite: kevin kramp

Kevin Kramp was, hands down, my favorite from this year’s Voltage: Fashion Amplified show at First Avenue. Kramp presented a collection of conceptual knitwear for men that made my heart flutter. The work that went into each piece was insane. I repeat, insane. It takes my mom a decade or two to knit a baby … Continue reading

So here, in just … Continue reading

Last night, Allison and I went to Second Runway.  A benefit runway show for Goodwill Easter Seals. A bunch of local designers and design students shopped at the Goodwill and deconstructed garments into something fresh and new. It was really cool to see everything they came up with, from maternity to bridal. We have a … Continue reading
