Each of my collections draws inspiration from the tactile world around us. I'm heavily influenced by minute textures and interesting patterns that emerge on natural and manmade objects. For other texture lovers out there, my 2013 collection does not disappoint. Drawn from the scales of a majestic red iguana, every inch is thoughtfully covered in luscious detail and striking contrast. Due in stores by the end of this month, some of you may have caught peeks of the prototypes on my instagram feed. Below are photos of the encounter and resulting sketches that started it all. Stay tuned for the big reveal later this month.
