Inspiration: Proenza Schouler


Proenza Schouler has caught my eye with their use of prints, minimal color, and boxy shapes for women.
I typically am not a fan of boxy shapes, but Proenza Schouler creates beautiful clothing from the simple shape as they use it as a canvas to layer gorgeous fabrics and details.


Proenza Schouler is a womenswear line based in New York.
Jack McCollough and Lazaro Hernandez's designs are inspired by contemporary art and youth culture but refined by impecable tailoring.
The brand has expanded into shoes and handbags within the last few years.
Proenza Schouler is a fairly young brand being founded in 2002.
Yet they have already taken huge steps in the fashion industry by winning two CFDA Awards in 2004 and 2007, just a short time after launching.

Proenza Schouler fashions can been found in over 100 exclusive retailers.
You can find some for yourself at Bergdorf Goodman.

Such inspiring, fun combinations! 
Don't you love the bright pop of color from the bags paired with a black and white outfit?
I love their use of trims and pockets!

I'll have to try to utilize a few of these ideas into my own sewing projects and outfits!
Will you?

Made By A Fabricista: Date Night looks for Valentine's Day

Happy New Year! I am excited to be back blogging in 2023 with Fabric Mart.  Over the past few weeks, I spent quite some time reflecting on what truly brings me joy and a personalized form of self-care. Sewing was on the top of the list and I truly enjoy making my own clothing.  During the winter break, I wanted to create some basic looks that I can jazz up for a wedding or rock on date night.  When I read Johanna’s  blogpost and came across the Vogue 1835 pattern that she made last month, I saw endless possibilities with the pattern.  I knew it was perfect to hack to make a mini, midi or maxi dress and a staple pattern to have. My original plan with the lycra foil printed knit ( here ) fabric was to make a formal infinity wrap dress that I saw on instagram.  I will be attending a formal event later this month and felt it was perfect. Knowing that I would only wear the infinity wrap dress once or twice per year, I decided to make separates that I can dress up or down and maximize the w

Made by a Fabricista: YouTube Edition | Marty - Let's Make Some Activewear!

Do you ever see a fabric, and it reminds you of a fabric in your stash, so you just have to combine the two and like... annoy the world? Now I'm not saying that these colors are horrible together, but I definitely feel like a high visibility vest while wearing them. The neon orange and hot pink are just that striking of a combination. And I still can't get over the pocket detail I did on the color-blocked pair. Along with everyone else I set a New Years goal to be more healthy. To improve my relationship with food, my body, and the world around me. And these leggings bring me so much joy. Not, go run a marathon in July joy. But maybe some Yoga and outdoor adventures in August kind of joy. From beginning to end, figuring out these legging patterns has been a lot of fun. Before this, it had been almost a decade since I had worked this seriously with knit, and I think I need to do more, to be honest. I apologize for the awkward photos. I just finished a cross-country move and am s

Made by a Fabricista: Youtube Edition | Dee & Dory

YouTuber's Dee & Dory are back on the Fabric Mart blog today with their most recent Fabricista Makes. Make sure to click play on the video below to hear all about their fabric choices & how their projects turned out! Dee Simplicity 9189 was the pattern used for the wonderful ponte knit of polyester lycra.  This is a medium weight fabric, perfect weight for cooler weather wear or layering when it is colder.  The fabric sews up easily and there were no issues with working with this fabric.  It also launders well. I used cool water and in the dryer a medium temperature.   Wrinkles were not an issue.   A great choice if you need a medium weight stretch fabric for a garment.   This fabric can be dressed up or down, looking chic with a pair of jeans or a topper for a dress. Do be careful though if the pattern calls for the reverse side showing, as the wrong side of this fabric is white! Dory I found this ITY Knit 58” wide perfect for Kwik Sew 3873.  It’s such a flowy fabric, 4 wa
