Feburary 3, 2017

Generally I am into all things raw: raw tuna, raw edge hems, raw emotion.  So when I heard about RAW Artists, I knew it had to be good. So what exactly is it? RAW Artists was founded to shed light on emerging designers and artists of all mediums.  From dance to photography to fashion—it’s all happening and it’s all here.  With shows going on in major cities all over the globe, it is a celebration of the arts like no other.

On January 25th I had the honor of participating in the RAW showcase: “RAW Chicago Presents CUSP”.  My collection for the show echoed the elevated separates that make up Emah The Label, but with a bold desert palette and textured, comfortable textiles.  As per usual, I am coveting tie backs and elastic waistbands.  Both aesthetically pleasing and comfort maximizing—I can’t help but give them the attention they deserve!  These dark and moody images are so opposite the bright aesthetic I tend to gravitate towards and I am totally digging them! Enjoy!
