|Whispering Whimsy: designing duo Johnson + Kniss are the fashion engine of Van Der Neer|
Sacramento has been experiencing a sort of fashion renaissance as of late, and one of the many highlights I've had this year was the opportunity to meet and interview some incredible talent that hails from my hometown. Two such bright lights I've recently met are the design team behind local fashion label, Van Der Neer. A couple in real life, this pair of cuties are the indisputable indie fashion darlings of Midtown. Modest and sweet, they produce memorable collections of edgy arty fashion.
My interview of Van Der Neer has been published over at CBS Local and you can read it by clicking HERE.
Of late, I've been experiencing a bit of feast AND famine. I'm needing to focus on my livelihood, namely paid freelance work, and selling my line of Citizen ROSEBUD/ curated vintage. As usual, I seem to take on too many projects (I mean well!) and end up bailing on a handful of them. For those who've had to deal with this: my apologies.
True be told, I'm now struggling to earn a living, and a lot of what I've been doing has been gratis, free of charge, and put bluntly, it's not helping me one drop here in Rosebud-land. I've been freelancing for a year now, and it's crunch time. For survival sake, I've got to focus on earning my keep. I hope you understand, but I'm not going to be able to read/comment on my blog roll for a while, please don't take it personally.
