      Away to Austin

      It was a lovely weekend in Austin!  We showcased our newest Spring items at the Fashion X Gallery at Austin Fashion Week and were lucky to be set up along with so many talented and inspiring designers.

      The sun came out on Saturday just in time for our pop-up event in the pony shed. Our friends enjoyed cocktails provided by The Butterfly Bar and homemade pasta from Patrizi’s food truck. We ended up extending our event a little longer since we were having such a great time! We are hoping to visit Austin more in the near future, so stay tuned….

      The Spirit of Cafe Reggio

      Expresionist

      My dad took me to New York for the first time when I was 16.  We went to the Cafe Reggio in Greenwich Village and sat at one of the little tables there. He said, “Biqui, I want you to close your eyes and imagine this place filled with Bebop, Beatniks, and deep thinkers.  Their ghosts are here at these tables and if you sit in the places they once sat, you might just absorb the spirit of their creative genius.”

      Now, still dreaming of the artists who filled their canvases with fields of color and abstract form, who attacked their work with a full force of feeling, who felt the drum beat of everything around them, I hope to discover in this painted series just a bit of what might have rubbed off on me in the Cafe Reggio with Dad so long ago.
