Yesterday I had a chance to do something I've been hoping to experience for a while -- spend some one-on-one time with Oami Powers, the designer behind Judah Ross! I knew I was going to enjoy every moment I spent with her when I rode up the driveway and noticed these beautifully bright azaleas.
I was greeted by Oami and her two adorable pups, Rosie and Stella... my heart melted.
Then we got right to business --
Oami makes the most delicious juices I've ever had -- and it was so simple! A couple of apples, a few carrots and a lemon. It was a much needed, heavenly, mid-morning pick me up.
After getting a quick tour of her home, which is absolutely adorable, I got to spend some time with her in the studio.
Then I fell in love with a new pair of pants Oami designed for the Fall 2013 collection... heres a sneak peek detail:
I learned so much about Oami, her family of artists, the moment she was obsessed with drawing roosters, and best of all... I got to see her magical powers in action! Want to meet Oami?! Visit her later this month at one of Redess Raleigh's favorite local boutiques, Epona & Oak, during her trunk show. You should ask her about where she draws her inspiration, how she chooses fabrics for her collections, and what time of the day is most suitable for dyeing fabrics (sometimes it's as early as 4am!).
