Work in Progress

Within the first half of 2015, we threw our first open mic, released our Spring/Summer collection, co-hosted an art show, and more! The past six months blessed us tremendously and I am eager to kick off the next. Thanks to the Empire Team and all of your support, we are entering the second half of the year with confidence and preparation; the ball is rolling for our annual kickball tournament (pun intended), we are on the list for FAME, and the next collection has begun production! I am eager to see where else 2015 will take Empire and to share that journey with you.

But, for now, let me share a tool that played a vital role for Empire these past six months: my Pow! Wow! Hawaii! sketchbook. These sketches and seemingly-untranslateable scribbles are the beginning stages of the She is King clothing collection and the art pieces for the Bold & Young art show. All my ideas, experiments, brainstorming, occasional frustrations– this book has seen it all! As messy and rough these little guys are, they’re reminders that each step gets you closer.

All my 2015 ideas, experiments, brainstorming, occasional frustrations– this book has seen it all! And it will continue to do so… until it runs out of pages that is.

Happy second half of the year, everyone!
