Store is now open!!!
My most important note about launching this first collection is really the hardest one to talk about. I want to dedicate this collection to @benmckinnon who took his own life last august. I spent basically the entire time making these clothes thinking about him and crying or laughing about memories. In retrospect I realized how much I looked up to him. At times I've thought about just giving up out of fear and anxiety. I'm sure Ben had his moments with his work also, but he pushed through and the result was just fantastic work that had such a positive impact on people. Looking at all he's done gives me the hope and strength to keep trying and keep pushing forward. So Ben, this is for you! Keep shining that light on us, love you forever.

Store opens tomorrow! I mentioned yesterday I had so much more to say about this launch. I want to dedicate today to my Opa who passed away a few years ago. He and my Oma came to this country and started a company from the ground up. I've had my low moments where I've wished he was here to pass on wisdom and advice. I usually just end up thinking about his song, 'I did it my way' by Frank Sinatra. For this company I'm literally living by those words. What I want most in my life is to have a positive impact on the world. I really want to make this place better for everyone but most of all for animals. I also know that there's no way in hell I would ever be able to take this huge step and risk without his generosity and hard work as well as the generosity and hard work of my entire family and especially my parents (@coucou.caro 😘 ) thanks to you all and I hope I can make you proud πŸ˜ŠπŸ€“β€

My store launches this Wednesday! I can't wait for you all to see my baby! I'm so thankful for all the hard work from my photoshoot team @sydneyannabb @chelseadawn_lockstolashes @melanie_ann25 @mchristina.hu @oliviassouad @laurenbougie @debodali and the beautiful @boxotel. If you want to show your support, I really don't expect you guys to buy anything you don't plan on wearing or like, but please share the info in any way you like! Choose your favorite piece or photo so far and spread that shit 😊😊 I'll post a couple more times this week cause I have so much more to say and people to thank, but I'd really appreciate your help in getting the word out!
