New Collection – an homage to Prince

October to now I’ve been working on a new collection which I plan to release both individually and as an E-book next week. I’m pretty excited to launch my first E-book and I’m quite proud of these designs. I think they’re funky and feminine and to me, they feel very original.

During the late Spring, VH1 aired the movie “Purple Rain” countless times and while the acting was mediocre, I kept watching Prince and Apollonia and really fell in love with Prince’s sense of style. I wanted to pay homage to his wonderful music and wonderfully original style and so I had in my head this Purple Rain collection. Purple Rain along with When Doves Cry are probably two of my fave Prince songs.

In thinking of this collection, purple was a forgone conclusion. I also thought of his album, Diamonds and Pearls and knew that these accessories required bling. Knitting bling pretty much means the addition of beads. I’m not sure that this collection can live up to the phenomenon that is Prince but this is my homage to the artist.
