Indie Designer Day

Designer: Helen Carmichael
Blog: Stitches Studio
Rav ID: BChezza
Some Great Designs: BChezza's Rav Designer Page

It is a truth universally acknowledged that you gotta have a look: a designer's work should be instantly recognizable by the brand s/he's created.

And here, I think you'll see that BChezza has done a wonderful job. To me, she communicates warmth. Wearability. Comfort.

You can see this not only in her designs, but also in the photography and styling.

First I've included a close-up of my favourite of her pieces, Arrowstone Gauntlets. Look at that. Warm, texture, quick knit, all very attractive.

If you click on over to Miracle Beach Beret, I think you'll see just what I'm talking about with the warmth and coziness. That hat is solid: classic shape, warm look, interest in texture (and colour, as you see in some of the projects). I think it's fantastic.

Finally I'll point you to the White Swan Beret. Very much along the same wonderful lines as the Miracle Beach Beret, but somehow just a bit more feminine. LOVE!
