Ok, so gearing up for a comeback is not such an easy task. There’s a lot of umm what if I can’t do it, ahhh what if it’s not like it was before et cetera, et cetera. Step one, I suppose, would be to get rid of those negative thoughts right. Ok, so then what? Step two, find inspiration in new ways. Queue stumbling upon Allison Watkins. California-based Allison Watkins is an artist whose work combines art and fashion in an very intriguing and inspiring new way! I love the idea of bringing your carefully curated closet out from behind closed doors. Why not let each zig – zag, each polka – dot, and splash of colour come to life! Allison says;

I’m mainly attracted to the color, pattern, and texture of material – it’s so seductive.  This is partly what drew me to the closet as a subject to embroider. A closet can be full of memories, and the eclectic nature of a persons wardrobe is what draws me to it.

I absolutely adore it and hope you are feeling inspired on this fresh Wednesday morning! xx
