|When it comes to talent, Sacramento designer Lindsay Rickman has it made in the shade|
Last July, I ran into my friend and local fashion designer, Linday Rickman in front of our favorite vintage shop, Crimson & Clover. She was with a friend visiting from Sweden, and I LOVED their street style so much, me and my pal Kerry Dolan snapped a bunch of pictures. I posted them here.
For over a year we vowed to meet for coffee, but just never quite got around to it. Until recently, when I began to write an article about her. I'd been seriously thinking about freelance writing, and since I've been wanting to cover local talent and fashion, interviewing Lindsay was a no-brainer. Sadly, the interview is now lost, along with the incredible photo shoot I shot with her when my computer crashed. Which sucks, but I have to move on, and let it go.
Lately, Lindsay had been on my mind. She has so much talent and good vibes. Her costumes for a recent ballet astounded me. I loved her creative re-use of fabric, her original designs and her obsession with vivid colors and mad dash of prints. Over a cuppa, we decided we would organize a fashion show, or a trunk show together.Well due to recent uh, un-circumstances, we are now going bolder, bigger. We are going to team up and share a space.
And we need your support! This week, I'll be moving the Citizen shop into her studio. We'll set up shop and have a trunk show: you're invited! For those who can't make it to Sacramento, don't worry. I'll be working on filling our respective Etsy shops where you can shop 24-7. . If you'd like to contribute to our business plans please donate to our "Citizens of Rosebud" fund. By donating via Chip-in you can help me get a small business up and going. For any contributions over $50.00, we can offer you a matching "Citizen Rosebucks" good towards any Citizen Rosebud future purchase. Click here to support the Citizen!
