My talented cousin Anna Gilkerson is the artistic force behind the Canadian clothing company deux fm. This summer she and I collaborated on some lace-printed pieces for her Spring 2009 collection. It was exciting to experiment with something new and different, and to discover how expressive lace designs and patterns can be. I love the look of the finished pieces.
Anna creates lovely and elegant clothes while promoting ethical and environmental awareness. She uses eco- friendly as well as recycled fabrics and utilizes fair labor practices. All of her goods are manufactured and sourced in Canada. Deux fm's beautiful fall line is available now and you can visit their website for more information and retail outlets.
