Save the Date!

Provo Fashion Week is rebranding to Utah Fashion Week, and this comes with so many new, exciting changes!  These new projects include a magazine to be released the 15th of this month, featuring our Utah designers, bloggers, photographers, and hair and makeup artists, and I can’t wait to share it with you!  Another exciting change is that instead of having 2 fashion weeks a year, we’ll be having one in the Spring, with multiple smaller events throughout the year.  This brings me to this announcement:

Save the date and start planning your outfit!  Utah Fashion Week is hosting a Fall Fundraising Gala on October 17th in Salt Lake City, and it’s going to be beautiful!  There will be a preview fashion show featuring evening wear and bridal designs from a few of our designers, including me! Stay tuned for more details!



The lovely Brit Andrus and her husband are so cute in this shoot styled by Morgan for InFrames Photography, and Mallory Francks.  I’m always saying this, but I love collaborating with creative people.  Isn’t the headpiece by Danani Handmade incredible?  It went so perfectly with the silver and white lace crop top and chiffon wedding dress I made.  I’ll stop with the words now so you can move on to the pictures, they are stunning!

Kelsey Gown

One of the things that makes all of the time spent designing/making clothes so fun is being able to wear your own designs.  Unfortunately (Or I guess from a less fashion obsessed viewpoint it could be seen as something to strive for) there aren’t many opportunities in a lifetime to wear wedding dresses.  I spend so much time making them, so sometimes I have to make up an excuse to wear them- like this photo shoot.  I also love any excuse to work with talented people like one of my favorite HMUAs- Tiffany Johnson (I wish I could have her get me ready every morning!), and it’s always so much fun to work with Mike Johnson and my cute sister, Sarah Christensen.  For this shoot we got to shoot in Mike’s brand new, beautiful studio in Logan which I made quite a little mess in with buckets full of blossoms thrown around everywhere.   For this shoot I wore my Kelsey gown, which is one of my favorites- it’s a wrap-around dress made with a burnout chiffon in a floral pattern, and it is so comfortable, I could wear it every day!  We also shot my Minna gown, which I’ll post tomorrow!

Gold Lace and a Video

I’m so excited to share these pictures from this photo shoot with Jesca Cluff, Toni Zitting, and Amanda Dixon.  It’s always fun to see collaborations come together, especially when working with such talented people who’s styles are so different than my own.  I love seeing my dress styled in a way that I never would have come up with, and I absolutely love the way these turned out, Jesca captured everything so beautifully!  And isn’t this headpiece by Toni incredible? _92A0457-Edit _92A0478-Edit _92A0232-Edit _92A0371-Edit _92A0595-Edit _92A0029-Edit _92A0518-Edit

Fashion Week Spring 2015- Behind The Scenes

So much goes on behind the scenes, and even though it gets a bit crazy sometimes, it’s so fun to be a part of all of it!  These are some of my favorite pictures that capture some of the best moments from producing Provo Fashion Week this Spring.  From surprise birthday parties, set building, runway cleaning, to last minute sewing and sweet little girls nervously waiting to go on stage.  Thank you everyone who helped make Utah’s Fashion Week a big success once again!  We couldn’t have done it without all of you!
