A Letter from the Designer

IMG_2263.JPG
It doesn’t interest me what you do for a living. I want to know what you ache for, and if you dare to dream of meeting your heart’s longing.

It doesn’t interest me how old you are. I want to know if you will risk looking like a fool for love, for your dream, for the adventure of being alive.
— The Invitation by Oriah Mountain Dreamer

I realize that speaking of our hearts true longing may be heavy stuff to contemplate when your intention was to visit the web site of a dress designer and gain inspiration for your perfect day. This is my first ever blog entry and I figured - well, may as well just dive right in and show them who I am. We are often afraid to do that in business. It’s like a game we play with ourselves and the world looking in. ‘Reworking’ who we really are and branding ourselves to be “better” “cooler” “more successful” “more millennial” “someone who fits the brand”. I won’t play that game with you. My brand is Me. Quirky. Magnetic. Dynamic. A lover of all things vintage and antique. Filled with Purpose. Joyful. I love who I am and what I represent. I want to share that with you always and hopefully some of the magic I put out into this world will inspire you to always be yourself and stay true to what you represent as a human, a business leader, a member of your community, a woman. I want to show you what finding your Creative Dreamer looks like through the creation of my dresses. Each dress I create is filled with joy, intention, meaning, purpose. Each dress is a recipe for magic and happiness and love. When you hold one in your hands I want you to feel that purpose. I want you to feel my intention to infuse each piece with the beating of my heart and the music that guides my soul. We are partners in awakening your creative dreamer, you and I. This process can be the catalyst that you need to propel yourself forward and realize that your dreamer has been there all along. Just waiting patiently for a time to come forward and the right inspiration to arrive. What better inspiration than your dream dress? Perhaps you don’t need a dress. That’s ok. This is still the right place for you. I want this to be a place where women can come to find inspiration. Whether you need a dress or not. My intention is to build a place of solace and grace and joy. Through the epic photography you will find here on my website to the blog posts and videos you’ll soon see weekly, I hope to help you awaken the creative dreamer inside. Let’s build a community of like minded women here. I’m excited to begin sharing my journey with you and letting you inside my awesome world.

Your friend; Trista
