Designing Women


, , , , , ,


Have you ever had a Barbie doll? This woman, Anne, may have designed her outfit. But now she designs prints for underwear and teaches digital design at Otis College of Art & Design in L.A. Anne also exhibits her artwork around the world and sells her designs on a range of products and fabrics, such as these leggings. I love her crazy-ass patterns and colour. To learn more about Anne and her myriad of talents be sure to check out her blog SpyGirl.


Ooh-la-la. It’s Sue, woman of the world. She made this fantastic frock and dozens and dozens more. Her sewing skills put me to shame. Sue brings light wherever she goes, through her clothes and through her personality. She has a wonderfully-written blog that reflects her love of whimsy, fun, and arty stuff. A Colourful Canvas: Stitch Style Smile. Have a look!

High-flying style

This diva is no stranger to Culture Serf. You may remember Sheila from posts I did on her HERE and HERE. Always stylish, always the life of the party. Under her hat is a magnificent meringue-y swirl of vivid purple hair. On her feet? Need you even ask?! Fluevogs, of course. Like a rock star she flew into Vancouver from Vancouver Island for a weekend of fun. Aaah, the life. Be sure to check out her style blog Ephemera.


Power Socializing, that’s what these two are dressed for. No need for sequins, spangles or doo-dads, they let their personalities do the dazzling. But I do like their matching raspberries. Ally, left, is a high-power lawyer from New York with a life/style blog called Shybiker. And Shawna, right, who also flew into town from the Island for the weekend (?!), is a writer and artist with a passion for style, which she shares on her blog, The Director of Awesome.

Sunshine on her back. Paower!

This is Patti. She brought a lot of sunshine from her home state of Florida, which helped with the rain here. She is not only super styling herself, but she is a strong advocate of self-expression through style among women over 40. Be sure to check out her style blog Not Dead Yet Style.


Hello, Pao! She made her flowy pants and this amazing jacket from vintage Hawaiian fabric. And don’t miss her groovy shoes and sassy socks. Pao has a blog called Project Minima in which she chronicles her adventures sewing all her clothes – yes, ALL, well, except socks, but socks too. Pao is also an accomplished artist. She resides in Chicago.
