SPRIIIING!  15% off shop wide this weekend only!  With code SPRINGSPRUNG



Anyone who's been reading this blog for any amount of time knows how near and dear to my heart the Textile Arts Center is.  Be sure to come on out and support them for the 2014 Sewing Seeds Fundraiser!

As per their website:


STAINED was created by artist Cara Piazza as an unique experience for the public to engage with natural dyes through the lens of experimentation, ritual and performance. The event will challenge and delight the senses, inviting guests to participate with different “sensorial stations”, all interacting in unique ways with natural dyes.

An opulent table featuring ceramic works by Daniela Jacobs and Betty Roytburd, hanging net installation and table linens created by Cat Lauigan of Cave Collective and local delicacies curated by chef and artist Nicole Asselin, that will also function as dyes and stains.

A tapestry will be suspended along side ritualistic vessels conceived by Alex Wolkowicz of Cave Collective, that guests can use to splash, bang and imprint their imaginations on to it.

A tent will be erected, where guests will play with scent and sound, with scents provided and conjured up by Natural Apothecary and beauty guru Jessa Blades and sounds mixed by Cat Lauigan of Cave Collective.

Each station will combine all the elements of the human senses of sight, taste, touch, hearing and smell and abstract them to wholly immerse you into the world of natural dyeing.

Join us for a night of celebration of art and natural dyes, local food + cocktails, and unique experiences.

May 22nd, 7-11PM
The Dumbo Loft (155 Water Street, Brooklyn)
Ticket includes access to event and performances and open bar from 7-11PM generously provided by Van Brunt Stillhouse and Sixpoint Brewery Dancing provided by DJ Ayres from THE RUB.

I've always felt guilty about throwing away scraps so was thrilled when I met Pauline from Counterpane who happily took a load of them off my hands.  I sent her a giant box of scraps and *this* amazingness happened  - those are all scraps from my very first SS12 collection (all except the backing)!

Merry Marbling


I had the pleasure of a visit from the lovely Rima Campbell of BKStyled the other day when she stopped by and snapped some pics around the studio while we both drank coffee from my new Helen Levi mugs.

We also nailed down plans for an exciting holiday workshop - Merry Marbling - because yes, it will most certainly be merry. ;)

Event Details:

+ December 7, 2013
+ 6-9 pm
+ Location TBD in Brooklyn

Learn to marble with Clinton-Hill based fashion designer Ilana Kohn.  Each participant will walk away with 1o marbled handkerchiefs (great for gifts!) and a swag bag full of local goodies.  This two-hour workshop will be followed by an hour of holiday-inspired cocktails & cookies. 

Ermie x Weltenbuerger Pop-Up


I can't even begin to express how excited I am for my friend Jennifer's POP-UP that is opening this weekend at the Hammer Museum in Westwood!  Aside from being an amazing textile/clothing designer herself, she has one of the keenest eye's for curation out there. From what I have been seeing on instagram (@ermiegram), this is gonna be one heck of a shop and for folks in the la area, NOT TO BE MISSED!

I'm very excited about the marbled scarves that I created for the pop-up! Jennifer was actually in town a couple of weeks ago so we spent the most glorious day making them together at the Textile Arts Center which makes them even more special in my opinion.

Good luck and congrats Jennifer!!!!!  xxx

It was such a surprise yesterday to discover that one of my dresses had been featured in the new Still Corners video, which debuted exclusively on vogue.com!   I'm pretty blown away by all the talent that went into a production like this - the director, the amazing hair (Alison Brislin!), the great clothes and obviously the music!  I'm so so thrilled I could play even a small part in this. :)

Textile Arts Center is a NYC-based resource facility dedicated to raising awareness and understanding of textiles through creative educational programs for children and adults.  At TAC, we aspire to unify the textile community and advocate for the handmade by providing accessible, skills-based classes that reinvigorate engagement with traditional crafts. 

This event will provide the space for a converging conversation around textiles: their future, relevance, and place in art, design, industry, and culture. The gala includes a cocktail hour, silent auction, and seated dinner that celebrates the work done at TAC for artists, designers, hobbyists, children, and the general public. 

Tickets are $150 each, and admit (1) for the cocktail hour, silent auction, and seated dinner. Donations are tax-deductible to the extent of the law. Funds raised during this benefit directly support operating costs, the Artist Residency program, Sewing Seeds, and youth scholarships.
