Moss is a collection of clothing, jewelry and cute little objects inspired by romantic ideas and sweet little grannies. Everything is lovingly made by hand. Just like your grandma would but we try very hard not to smell like musty old attics.
1. What are you most excited about selling at the next Bargain Hunting?
What’s the price?
MOSS will be offering last year’s designs for 50% off retail (some could be more!). I will also be bringing one of a kind items, designs that I worked on but never quite made it to the production line. Aaaaand I will also be showing off new spring items.
2. What inspired you and keeps you going creatively?
Any tips for staying on track when you’re in a creative slump?
I think being around other creative people and bouncing off ideas with each other helps a lot. I also keep a clip file of pictures, materials and ideas that I come across. Some of them I use right away, some I save for later. I get inspired a lot by materials and colors, so I like going to fabric stores, thrift shops, art supply stores, etc.
3. What fashion era do you love best and why?
Although, for my personal style, I adore the 30s and 50s but for jewelry, it would have to be the Victorian era. Just because of the sheer number of accessories men and women wore. And everything was so ornate and well made.
