Collaboration with Ermie

Earlier this summer I did a fun collaboration with 
my friend Jennifer Parry Dodge of ERMIE

The project started with a casual hang-out at Jennifer's home where 
she had tons of fabric and dyes for me to play around with. 

Jennifer turned those experiments into a couple of one-of-a-kind 
Ermie dresses. She also photographed the textiles, kaleidoscoped
the image, photoshoped the color around and created digitally 
printed textiles in 2 different colorways.

In the photos below you can see the original painting on the raw silk,
the model rocking one of the Ermie dresses with 
 the sleeveless version in a radically altered colorway, and me 
in one of the dresses at Cacao Mexicatesen for some huevos rancheros.
The heavy cotton jersey Jennifer chose for the dresses is so 
comfy and wears so well. I'll definitely be wearing these a lot this fall.

JPD has built the Ermie blog and online shop
 around the spirit of collaboration, generosity and 
a quest for beauty and joy in daily life.
