The Nola Collection

May 19, 2011, 12:52 am

I’ve started working on a new collection for my New Orleans peeps. It’s something I’ve wanted to do for a long time, but I couldn’t find any appropriate ¬†fabrics that didn’t have Saints logos all over them. I love the Saints, but the last thing I need is to have the NFL come after me for using their logos on my designs. ¬†So, I’ve decided to make my own fabrics:

New Orleans Fleur De Lis Black and Gold Clutch Purse

Inspired by wrought iron fences.

I draw the designs in Paint, print them on poster board, and cut them out with an Exacto knife. The design is stenciled on black linen with metallic fabric paints, and the whole thing is then touched up and detailed by hand. This particular one is inspired by the wrought iron fences that you see all over the city. I’m working on a magnolia design and planning to do some purple, green and gold stuff. Check it out in here: the shop.

Now I just have to hope that we actually have a football season this year. Geaux Saints!
