This blog is my portfolio, my inspiration and just a major library of things

the things I LOVE. wildfox ©

I was born in England and raised in the rain. I moved to sunny California at the age of 11. I have always been interested in so many creative things, especially movies and story telling! I love to act and direct and draw and fell into design later on in life. I had a lot of personal struggle with identity as I grew up, I feel very lucky to be able to inspire other people. With my friend Emily I started the company Wildfox based on things we always wanted to see in a clothing line and based on my love for ultimate story telling. We strive to make quality garments in Los Angeles using great factories and wonderful employees to create exceptionally soft fabrics and wonderfully dreamy pieces.

Today I am still the co-owner and creative director (Missing my other half, Emily Faulstich, who left to be with her love) and work with a company of 98% women who are like my sisters. Part of that team are Meredith Leyerzaph, Megan Feely, Leilani Shimoda and hair stylist Anna Lee Fiorino, Make up artist Carlene K, and Photographer Mark Hunter. We work around the clock and even dream of designs to try and inspire young women and dreamers.

As a painter, photographer and designer I put a lot of work into the stories that drive our collections, picking the muses for each one, casting, styling and producing a shoot that takes you into another world. We all have so much fun on set and we hope it shows! 

I live for sleepovers, I dream of designs, I love my girlfriends more than life, and I'm totally inspired by women. I started a blog so that everyone could be inspired by other artists to create, learn, photograph, paint, design, party, dress up, and be happy. Inspired by friends, love, camping, dreaming, riding around in cars, driving along the coast, beautiful books, witches, poetry, movies, faeries, dreams, Los Angeles, and the earth, I hope to remind people to be wild, have fun, and get lost in their dreams.
