Independent in October

I always feel especially good in the fall.  It’s the time of year to harvest, to celebrate the bounty from all that was planted and tended to in the spring and summer.  I’ve been eating a lot of tomatoes from my back yard, and I haven’t given them nearly as much time as I have to developing my creative work into a business.  I love the fall collection, and will be showcasing it at three places this month. Each show I do often feels like a culmination of my life to date.  But especially in this month that I was born in, I settle into celebrating the abundance that is manifest.  Thank you for being a part of that.  I hope to celebrate with you at one of O’Lover Hats upcoming shows.

This show features an array of local fashion designers, artists, filmmakers and djs.  Produced by the ever energetic Irene Hernandez, it is a hip, happenin event that brings a heavy dose of the bay area’s creative talent.  I always have a good time, which is why I do this show frequently.  That and Irene generously never charges designers for table space, which no one else does.  It is fun and the people look good.  Come out and flirt.

This is the first event of what appears to be a new series.  I don’t know exactly what to expect, but the lineup of designers is strong and if you are at all interested in the local fashion landscape, it seems obvious that you should come. You can visit for a lineup of the day’s events and to purchase tickets. Also the weekly wrote a nice small article.  To read visit
