Modern Flora photo shoot | How About Orange

April 11, 2008

Modern Flora photo shoot

The fabric I designed will be shown at a textile trade show in L.A. next week, thanks to some fancy footwork by Caroline of jcaroline creative. With one week to prepare, she managed to slipcover a sofa and do up pillows, a crib set, a lamp, dining chairs, a tablecloth, napkins, totes, and cosmetic bags. Yeah. Just a few things, right? She employs some wonderful ladies who helped pull this off at the speed of light, all culminating in an emergency photo shoot by Brooke Schwab Photography. Brooke took some gorgeous pictures for the booth—you can see more on her blog right here. I'm embarrassed to admit that meanwhile, all I did was stay in Chicago and send pesky emails. Caroline and Brooke, you are both amazing. I'm so lucky to know you.

This is so exciting and inspiring to see. Congratulations to you on your fabric and on getting to work with other really creative folks.

Plus, I'm very excited to see your fabric as my mom ordered some recently. I'll try to get photos of whatever she creates with it.

Your fabric looks so gorgeous!

Jess said...

Thanks, guys. As for buying the crib set, I guess you could email Caroline (contact info is on her site) and see if she'd sell it to you. Currently it's the only Modern Flora crib set in existence, so let's just hope some manufacturer at the show likes the look of it and decides to produce some!

Amy said...

That crib set is just lovely!

I still haven't decided what I'm going to do with my fabric that I bought. :)

I love your fabric! I wanted to buy some myself, but it is just too expensive to get it here over to Europe. A pity, really. Anyway, I will keep visiting your blog and be inspired.
