When I launched The Ørder 2 years ago, I swore I would never do runway...but earlier this month I had an incredible opportunity to showcase the line's S/S 2016 collection at the Mario Tricoci "Mario Make Me a Model" fashion show, featuring 5 finalists competing to win a modeling contract with FACTOR. The shot below is just a single moment from the event, stunningly captured by my friend and talented photographer John Khuu. More images, as well as a beautifully and honestly written write-up can be found here on his blog.
Take a peek behind the seams of THE ØRDER in my recent interview with Glossed&Found in their Fall Beauty + Fashion issue, featuring five model finalists doing major justice to the collections of five Chicago designers for the Mario Tricoci ‘Mario Make Me A Model’ competition. See them in runway action on September 25th at the Elements of Style Fashion Show- tickets here.

The incredibly gorgeous Hattie Watson doing The Ørder major justice on the white desert sands of New Mexico in the Graciose Pullover and Oiseau Noir Legging. The model x photographer x explorer x megababe packed these dark delights from Collection II into her suitcase for her cross-country roadtrip with photographer Chase Lisbon- you can track their beautiful & adventurous journey here.
I’m very proud to share this recent feature by the Art Assembly, a new Chicago-based collective spearheaded by editor Amanda Glandon. Her primary focus is to offer young artists a resource where they can connect with other creatives to learn about how they paved own their way in the independent realm. It’s an amazing concept and inspiring from any angle, and I’m honored to be a part of it.

Curated and produced by Colourblind, this beautiful portal is an interactive exploration of Velvit created to showcase the gallery's YIN and YANG collections. The project was ignited by Jaimie Lake (Velvit) and Josh Walker's (Colourblind) mutual appreciation for new design talent and the color black, and endeavors to honor the concept of both collections as well as the artists' work and thought processes that comprise them.
My clothing line, THE ØRDER, is honored to be featured in the portal as a Velvit artist. The exclusive interview can be found on page 5.

"Designers, like fine artists, take weeks and sometimes months to fabricate their collections, and they deserve just as much appreciation and respect as fine artists."
