Sometimes The Writing Is On The Wall

Mr. Malcolm's List Preview Event Recap

Jennyvi In Paris Photo Shoot Is Now On Youtube
Personally, I was drawn to "Creator," because I was creatively lost when my mom died. It seemed like everything I worked on wasn't the same. It felt like a part of my creative process died along with my mom. The dreams I had when my mom was alive was no longer relevant because she wouldn't see the results. In the video, I featured footage of my Paris photo shoot which is the last one before my mom passed away. She died a week after I got back to NYC. This video is long overdue because when I was grieving I found it hard to make anything. But since Ora The Molecule has helped me realize that there is still a "Creator" in me and I have to keep moving forward.

Creatively Connecting with Jane Austen
With the help of Jane Austen and fellow Janeites, I am happy to say that the creative beast has been busy sewing for the JASNA AGM (Jane Austen Society of North America Annual General Meeting). After joining JASNA in July, I received a very warm welcome from several members and so I started my journey in "Redesigning the Regency." A fun side project that combines my love of fashion history, Jane Austen and seeing my work alive in the world.
