Spring 2023 Collab with theBUBBLY.Life dropping April 15th!
As a young girl, I made a sport of avoiding mirrors. I did not equal the beauty ideal of the time. And then there was that whole year in a body cast after scoliosis surgery thing.
It was during that time that I was introduced to daily affirmations. At first, all I could come up with was “I like your ears, kid.” It was something.
Over the years, I've held onto affirmations as part of my wellness routine...it's a life-long process.
As a Meditation Teacher here in Los Angeles, I wanted to reinforce this practice for them. So, using my Parsons School of Design know-how, I created this line of hoodies as an offering of love to my students -- the wearer deepens the message to themselves each and every time they look in the mirror. Mirror Meditations, the first-ever Wellness Street Wear.
Mirror Meditations apparel is readable when the wearer looks at it in the mirror.
Each piece is designed to be a personal reminder to urge us to check in with ourselves each day...or at the very least give us a reason to stop, breathe, and smile.
MUDD CLUB KIDS
The 80s -- pop art, clubs like Danceteria, Mudd Club, Club 57, Paradise Garage, Fun House, CBGB, the fashion, colors, people, music -- all of that lives on in each piece, curated by Cyd, the secret club kid. You may now enter.
CYD = CHARISE
Custom painted mixed media/limited edition leather jackets and bags. Making the old even better, and the new truly unique.
The Sojourn Collection
Home fashion decor inspired by memories of favorite travels around the globe, and imbued by remnants of my ancestry now living within my mixed media and digital art.
Come along for the adventure, and make the sojourn your own!
TBL + CharisMa Designs Collabs
SPRING 2023 COLLAB on its way!
The NEW Other
"Othering" is a way of marginalizing those who are deemed to be outside of the acceptable or societal norm.
It's traditionally associated with race, gender, socio-economics, ethnicity, religion...anything where one group is held out as the standard above all others.
Over the last decade, The Tribe of Otherness has so fully embraced our multi-faceted identities that we have changed the cultural and political landscape as The New Other brings a vital POV to the zeitgeist. Now we can celebrate that by wearing it proudly. xoxo
Sharing the love for unique fashions for home & body...
I love the design aesthetic. And I am always excited to see how she will mix her art with items I want to wear or have in my home immediately!
I love this! A personal reminder for my daily affirmations.
Smart, unique designs, always with an unexpected twist.
Let's Talk Collaboration
Art and the creative process expands the depth and meaning of any sense of personal or business aesthetics. Working together to unearth The New, while paying homage to what came before, is what we love to do. And we are here to expand that reach to your style, home, and business.
