Grunge Lyfe

"Thank you for the tragedy, I need it for my art."  - Kurt Cobain    Meet the Smockingbird grunge lineup.  This showcase was an opportunity to create an original, diverse collection with the pulse of the 90s.  I only owned one flannel in college, so this was a bit outside my wheelhouse!  But as an artist I'm always up for a challenge to think outside the box and create something fresh, so I turned up the music and dove right in.   Silhouettes and fabrics came together and gave way to an idea for the perfect graffiti grunge photo shoot.  My team worked with me to make the...

Once in a Lifetime

Smockingbird Photo Shoot!

Behind the Scenes Fun Girl Time Growing Up Smockingbird Kids Fashion Photo Shoot Smockingbird Smockingbirdies Texas _f _i _l _s

So this is one of the most special things, ever.  It's one of those times I realize that this little business is so much more than pretty dresses.  My friend surprised me with a Smockingbird photo shoot. Not only did Jill organize everything, get a workout photographing a group of girlies, and edit tons of photos so that everyone could have individual shots to enjoy, she opened her closet to share with all of the Smockingbirdies who came. I don't think we've ever had a Smockingbird photo shoot.  It is so sweet to see years of work come to life in...
