On April 5th, Kathryn and I hung up our winter coats, packed our bags, and made our way down south to sunny Austin, Texas. Our agenda included a Creative Women’s Dinner and a trunk show at Kick Pleat, all of which were wrapped in a weekend getaway with our mama and a reunion with old friends.
Day one found us at the Blanton, which recently opened its doors to Ellsworth Kelly’s monumental work, appropriately titled, Austin. The permanent installation is his first and only freestanding structure making the piece an instant must-see.
The second half of an already epic day one found us at Hillside Farmacy, which played host to our Creative Women’s Dinner. With so many female powerhouse designers, artists and intellectuals, Austin felt like an obvious choice for the next installment of our dinner series.
One of the best parts about trunk shows is getting to know our cross-country customer base IRL. To everyone who came by, we love meeting you guys just as much as you guys love meeting us! The feeling is ALWAYS mutual.
ATX, thank you for always being so good to us. Between the art, the creative conversations and Kick Pleat, this weekend getaway inspired and energized us. Thank you, Austin!
