we've moved

hey everyone! sorry for the lack of posts here- i've been busy working on menswear and some other new rad custom orders in addition to traveling a lot for my "day job". I just wanted to pop in and let ya'll know that I do the majority of my "blogging" on tumblr now, which you can see here:

if you don't have tumblr don't worry, you can still follow it via google reader, or by subscribing to the RSS feed. To follow on google reader, just hit that subscribe button when your logged into your reader profile, paste this into the box: , and hit "Add". then you will be able to see all my daily postings right there with the rest of the stuff you follow...

To subscribe via RSS, make sure you are using any browser- BUT chrome (for some reason chrome is a piece of shit and makes it really difficult to do anything) i repeat- DO NOT ATTEMPT to do this in Chrome! anyway, just copy and paste this link:  into your URL bar thingy and a little box will pop up asking you if you'd like to subscribe or add as a bookmark or whatever.

So there you go, it's as easy as eating ice cream.
also, please don't forget to like the MLNW page on Facebook:

and tell all your friends.  SPREAD the good word, we've got major announcements coming up and MLNW is for EVERYONE. not just the ladies... New shoots/Collections/Shows/etc coming SOON.... keep in touch. and thank you very very much for all your love & support....

A PÆan

"Yet if hope has flown away
In a night, or in a day,
In a vision, or in none,
Is it therefore the less gone?
All that we see or seem
Is but a dream within a dream."- Edgar Allan Poe

A few weeks ago I was asked to tell the MLNW story through a mini documentary video about how I started Make.Love.Not.War. for VIMBY (Video in my backyard, a Mark Burnett company). Thanks to Joe Nolan the wonderful director, editor, and scout for finding me and making this happen. I couldn't have asked for more with the way it turned out and am so lucky to have so much support and love in my life. After seeing this, I am super stoked to start pumping out the new years collections... xo

Special thanks to Joe Nolan, Jean Candido, Natalie Opsitnick, Amber Danese Grandfield, Christie Eastburn, Sheena, Jeanne Haselier, Darshana Borah, and everyone else who loves and supports my dream of making cool clothes.

I hope you all had a wonderful holiday and wish everyone a bright new year
