Lookbook

I have found a real appreciation for local businesses thanks to my time living in Seattle. My fashion roots started in Ohio where supporting local business isn't as big of a deal as it is in the Pacific North West. Since my move I have found a new respect for those who've created a brand and make clothes by hand. I recently had the opportunity to meet Victoria, the woman behind Kheops.

Her story is a little different from most I've met; she recently moved to Seattle from Europe in hopes of making a name for herself and her clothing line. Back home her brand is well known and has sold hundreds of pieces, so you might be asking yourself why she chose to move to Seattle. Not knowing much English, she decided to move to an area where she already had a network of friends and family who could help her make this the perfect starting point.

40 plus looks; 3 models in 8 hours! It was humbling to be a part of something so fabulous. You can only see five looks here but you still see just how versatile she is. Something fun, sophisticated, short, long, fitted, and loose- she has made all of this and even more! I love how unique the clothes are, not like anything you may see on the runway. A one stop clothing shop with various kinds of fabrics, all sorts of colors and various styles of clothing. Kheops is set to launch their website at the beginning of May but for now you can follow all of her adventures and new designs on Instagram and Facebook!
