Foxy Moxie!


noun \ˈmäk-sē\

Force of character, determination, or nerve.

 As a designer, I depend greatly upon many talented people to help make my creations come to life.  The photographers I work with capture timeless imagery.  The makeup and hair artists I have the pleasure of knowing can take a beautiful girl and find unique ways to bring out her best assets.  Last but not least, I am forever indebted to my incredible models.  When I compose a look, I always imagine that the model is a living doll.  One could even say that the model is the vehicle by which everything comes together.

I have worked with many amazing women over the years.  Sometimes I fall so head over heels that I name dresses after them!  The latest darling to steal my heart goes by the name of  Moxie Macabre.

Moxie is one of the most interesting creatures I have ever encountered.  Besides being drop dead gorgeous, she is a seamstress, comic book junkie, and accomplished artist.  She is an avid antique hunter and lives to play dress up.  Moxie is also incredibly sweet and funny, which makes our photo shoot adventures even more fabulous.  Our most recent shoot took place at Atomic Liquors here in Las Vegas and we had a blast!  The dynamic photography team Square Shooting was there to snap some awesome images in one of Sin City’s coolest historical hotspots.

When I first came across the multi-colored argyle fabric, I knew that I had to design something adorable and vibrant.  I immediately imagined how cute the colors would look on lovely Moxie and it was all downhill from there!  Before I knew it, the“Foxy Moxie” dress was stitched up and ready for playtime.  The a-line silhouette is perfect for summer and I couldn’t pass up adding a chic retro kitty cameo.  I discovered some beautifully detailed sugar skull beads and made the new“Sugar Skull” flower hair clips.  These spooky little flowers add a generous splash of pigment to any outfit and look especially gorgeous when both colors are worn together.

I hope you’ve fallen desperately in love with “Foxy Moxie”. Next stop is the “Casino Queen” dress which will be available in a couple of weeks!  As always, thanks for the support!
