To a Place That Raised Me and the People Inside of It.
This project is inspired by a hometown grocery store in Gretna, Nebraska, that my grandparents and family have owned and operated for over 25 years. This space was a huge part of my childhood and teenage years. I spent thousands of hours here. Vintage work jackets, deli aprons, and butchers smocks were all draped and manipulated on a dress form to create silhouettes for this collection. Fabrics were sourced from deadstock marketplaces or bought as raw materials and dyed with food waste.
