i was so pleased to get an email from Elizabeth Pape introducing me to her line Elizabeth Suzann. a self taught designer, Elizabeth is based in Nashville and her design focuses on simplicity, clean lines, and longevity.
I use all natural fibers – silks, linens, cottons – many of the pieces are hand dyed and painted, and I try very hard to make versatile, seasonless pieces that will serve more than just one function in a wardrobe and can be worn a multitude of ways. It is my hope that by producing and consuming mindfully, we can focus on craftsmanship, reduce waste, and truly love the clothing we put on our backs. Everything is sewn here in Nashville (by me, currently) and we just this month moved into a studio space so we’ve got some room to grow.
you can see her new studio space here (love me a good studio tour) and shop pieces from the shop on her website. i loooooove that Anais peach watercolour midi dress, as well as this rad charcoal painted silk number. everything is fantastic though, so be sure to have a browse. looking forward to seeing more from Elizabeth in the future.
