Off the Walls
A gallery of looks
And here we are… The moment that all the fashionistas wait for: the release of the revered ‘September issue.’
But here’s an idea. Instead of us rehashing what’s “in” from that known fashion bible, we want you to toss that style rule book and just go with what inspires you.
To get you started, check out works from these local, female artists who all share a love of nature and a keen eye for color and how each of their aesthetics are paired into masterpiece looks.
You may spot a brush stroke echoed in a textile or tap into the energy flowing between canvas and cloth. Or you may just sit back and dig the all-around creative vibes.
And if these pages leave you longing for more, you can get yourself to the Fresh: exhibited to exhilarate exhibit at Kristen Martinez studio / exhibits and experience this artistic feast for the senses in person.
