A photograph of her on display in Paris just 2 months ago.  Her brand Boudoir Queen has been contributing to the recycling of vintage textile revolution since 1999. Shannon LaRotta graduate of the UT fashion department interned with Dawn. They joined forces as co-designers in 2008 creating Boudoir Queen one of a kind creations for the past twelve years. Dawn and Shannon make upscaled couture pieces and push the boundaries of upcycling by using artisanal techniques that are inherent to haute couture. Each creation is unique and is dripping with gorgeous hand picked embellishments from the 1800’s to modern day. All pieces are one of a kind rarely using patterns instead focusing on free-draping. The items are resurrected in the way the designers feel in that current moment. Her designs have been sold all over the world focusing on a large online presence. Her designs have been featured in numerous magazine publications including Vogue Italia Haute Couture supplement, Vogue, ELLE, Love, Lula, Flaunt and many more. Specializing in stage clothing and music videos is her forte’ as she comes from a rock royalty background  married to music producer and former guitarist to Billy Idol, Mark Younger-Smith. Karen Elson, Patty Griffin, Zoe Arquette, Susie Cave, Sera of London and many others are Boudoir Queen clients. Her designs can also be viewed at Astoria’s Museum of Whimsy and Mow Museum. Boudoir Queen has been photographed and published by some of  the fashion industry’s leading superstar photographers. Her designs were included in the now iconic Vogue Italia story “Into the Haute” photographed by Paolo Roversi, Yelena Yumchuck (Vogue Nine West Campaign) and Hedi Slimane former YSL director. Patty Griffin once said in  Austin Monthly magazine, “Dawn’s clothing have a lot of soul which is getting harder to come by these days.” The quote is from 2005 and still holds true.

SUKAZ JACKETS

SuKaz Jackets began during Susan Hollingsworth’s years living in Kazakhstan, a former Republic of the Soviet Union. The name “SuKaz”, a combination of designer and country, embodies the visions dreamed and the journeys taken to showcase the beauty of Kazakh freestyle embroidery and bring the jackets to life. A subsequent move to London gave Susan the opportunity to bolster her endeavor with classes at Central St. Martins College of Art and Design, and further study with a private tutor in pattern making. SuKaz wearable art jackets each tell a unique story, with threads of ancient traditions interwoven with flashes of contemporary elegance.

ANMARIE DESIGN

After participating in AFW 2019 I can’t imagine a year without it! After completing my undergraduate degree in fashion design at Auburn University, I worked tirelessly on perfecting my construction and tailoring skills in bridal and ready to wear so I would be at the top of the game when starting up my label, Anmarie Design. Last years collection was centered around evening and romantic allure. This year’s collection is inspired by mixing colors, patterns, a touch of texture with architectural shapes and vintage oriental influences. From my love of fashion to yours, enjoy!
