2001-2002 - Fairy Tales, Sleeping Beauty, Pirates, Seattle Canoe Project
photographer Norma Jean Straw, models Raina Brody & Gina Coffman<br>
My first full collection for Fancy Pony Land. I took it on the road and sold it to Xin & Show Pony in Los Angeles who truly gave me my start. This was also my first major use of leather appliqué in the skull & lotus skirt, inspired by my grandmother's passing and the Mexican way of celebrating death through funny and macabre skull imagery.
