Alice Kennedy must have something we really like. In the past few weeks, we've received not one, not two, but three of her lines designed for Timeless Treasures. While Momo tickles your cutesy fancy and Poppy Lane revs the black, white & red combo, Berkeley finds its inspiration in the bright colors and prints of the 1960s and 70s. We invited Alice to tell us more about her inspiration and creative process today!
My collections start with vintage fabric designs, mostly from the 60's & 70's. I then try to develop a color palette that is current and what I see "happening". The great thing about working in NY, especially the Soho neighborhood where TT's office is located, is the seemingly endless sources of inspiration nearby. I also subscribe to interior design magazines, catalogs, and blogs regularly to keep up on trends. I have been lucky enough to travel to London, Paris and Japan to shop for inspiration. I always keep my eyes open, because you never know what will spark a new idea!
These days I am busy designing new collections for Timeless Treasures for October Market, including a line of organic cottons, spending time with my 16 month old son Rowan and my husband Scott, and awaiting our second child's arrival in early June!
