In honor of my appearance on ABC15's Sonoran Living LIve to demonstrate how to upcycle a T-shirt without sewing, I thought I would share detailed instructions here on my blog. 

WHAT YOU'LL NEED:
A T-shirt, chalk or other eraseable marking tool, ruler, scissors. Any T-shirt will work, but you'll get the best results with shirts that are made of a blend (not just 100% cotton....something with some synthetic fibers) have a little more stretch and a soft hand to them.

I wanted to say a proper goodbye to 2015 because it was so good. I feel so grateful and excited for all that happened in 2015 that is already leading to an even better 2016!

In 2015, LabelHorde.com officially launched after years of planning and building and it's doing exactly what I had envisioned by providing sourcing and support for AZ's fashion industry.

I recently had the pleasure of attending the Arizona Costume Institute Holilday Lucheon at the Phoenix Art Museum. The guest speaker was former Coucil of Fashioin Designers of America (CFDA) Executive Director and founder of New York Fashion Week Fern Mallis. Fern now hosts a conversation series at the 92nd Street Y entitled Fashion Icons w/ Fern Mallis, which has featured interviews with Calvin Klein, Donna Karan, Tommy Hilfiger, Tom Ford, Michael Kors, Diane von Fursenberg, Marc Jacobs, Betsey Johnson, Vera Wang and Oscar de la Renta. She told us some really fun and interesting inside stories about these interviews and then had a book signing after.
