wiksten fall 2008 sneak peek




Right now I'm editing the photos from the Wiksten fall 2008 photo shoot, and I thought I'd share a few. These photos are of the Lena dress. When I found this delicately beautiful silk-screened fabric, I couldn't help but think of my new favorite book, Printing by Hand by Lena Corwin. I haven't quite settled on a date for when I'll put the new collection in the shop, but I'll be posting more news and photos here throughout the week.

It was such a treat to have the gorgeous and talented Jessalyn model for me again. She is now officially the "Wiksten spokesmodel". Emily Moore took the photos, and I couldn't be happier with how things turned out. It was pretty awesome to get to work with such a kind and gifted photographer. Frankly though, I'm just glad we got through this thing in one piece! I won't bore you with the details, but there were a whole lot of obstacles/disasters that almost kept me from getting to this point. Nevertheless it all worked out, and I'm very excited.

i just got my issue of Domino yesterday, and saw your feature. you look great, and the room they styled is lovely as well :)

Tasha T said...

Can we miraculously become best friends by November, so that you can make a dress for me for my birthday?; seeing how I don't have money??? Ha! ;)

Kristien said...

What a gorgeous dress, Jenny! I am excited to see the rest of your collection in a few weeks and am hoping you will bring back the gray Ellybeth dress and plaid Tova top from the fall 2008 collection. :-) Congratulations on the Domino feature too! I showed my husband the article last night and said this is the designer who made the gingham tank shirt I live in!

Kristien said...

Make that winter 2008 Ellybeth and Tova...

Jenny, you just keep getting better and better. the photos, the styling, the dress... all beautiful. :)

wow, I'm truly blown away by the clothing, styling, and the overall mood of the photos. I'm definitely getting that Toast-y vibe, which is absolutely a good thing! Makes me wish for cooler weather. I'm sure you've had a stressful time getting your collection together, but from the sneak peak, it really looks like your hard work has paid off! Congratulations!

love it want it love it want it.... This is just beautiful, but at the speed with which things fly out of the shop I think I'll never own a Wiksten piece again :(

Leanne said...

I desperately try to purchase a Wiksten piece every time something is placed in the shop - to no avail. I have hopes for fall! Gorgeous dress.

erica-knits said...
