I was thrilled to receive an email from Shannon Quimby, (an internationally recognized designer, photo stylist, author... the list goes on of her amazing accomplishments) inquiring about my designs and her desire to use some of my handmade bags and hats in her upcoming photo shoots for national publication! I met with her a few days later at her gorgeous home in Portland (one of America's first homes to be built on zero waste! Beautiful!) to discuss her creative process and to drop off Rizom goodies for her shoot in Portland. I found Shannon to be a beautiful, talented, gracious, down to earth woman with a wonderful sense of style & humor and I am so thankful to have the opportunity to work with her. Here are a couple of pieces that I just finished for her to take with her on a shoot in Texas coming up next week. So stoked!
