We've been working on another exciting project with fashion blogger Emily Jackson of The Ivory Lane....her closet! We've designed a few fashion blogger's closets here at Alice Lane, and each time we're amazed at how unique each of their own personal styles are. The end result of each of our designs is proof of that...always entirely new and different from the last. While we won't be revealing the final pictures of Emily Jackson's closet today (watch for that tomorrow!), we wanted to give you a little sneak peek into the design process!
Just like we do with every design closet, we met with Emily in her home to really get a sense for what she was needing. When you're fashion blogger like Emily Jackson, a well designed closet plays a critical role in your day to day life. From storing and displaying her plethora of handbags and high heels to being the perfect back drop for taking a selfie, every inch of this closet needed to be worthy of the spotlight. While Emily already had the bones of her closet in place, we were able to design all of the finishing touches that made the space unique to her. We always like to provide our clients with these hand-drawn sketches of their design so they can begin to visualize their space. Sometimes we even surprise ourselves with how much they look like the real thing!
It's fun to design a space that entirely centered around one person...no need to restrain or take multiple people's tastes into consideration. Emily's personal style is soft and elegant, but there's always an underlying sense of "edge" to each of her ensembles. We wanted to enhance that, while also pulling inspiration from some of Emily's favorite designers like Kate Spade and Kelly Wearstler; which resulted in a fantastically moody combination! We can't wait to show you how this design came to life in tomorrow's reveal. The entire collection will be shopable on our website too! So keep an eye for it, it's going to be a good one!
