HOMELESS PROJECT UPDATE

The throw ponchos are finished and ready to be screened with the bicycle graphic. I've contacted WeLoveLongBeach with hopes of turning the project into a collaboration. I have one other friend, Kristen Farrell who convinced her dentist friend to donate oral care kits as well. The plot thickens...

60's PAINTING FROM PARIS

This very hip painting belonged to my talented grand father (on my father's side). He bought it in Paris in the 60's and somehow it ended up in the hands of my grand mother (on my mother's side), who was an artist herself.  I own it now and get to look at it every day on my way out the door. I love the composition, color, lines. TIMELESS. http://www.elleBsee.com

Sofia Coppola


I think Sofia Coppola and I are soul sisters in one way or another. She is very inspiring and has excellent taste in music. Every one of her films' soundtracks exists of music I own and grew up listening to. It's very bizarre, but cool. http://sofiacoppola.org

This is Lena aka Ling Ling, my 4 1/2 year-old Westie and muse. She's my assistant/model and enjoys chewing on scraps of fabric that I give her while I'm creating a new blanket or poncho. Her input is key, because she has impeccable taste !http://www.elleBsee.com

A Time To Give


I'm working on a charity project for the homeless of down town Long Beach for the coming holiday season. I live down town and I see the homeless on a daily basis. I will be donating fleece blankets to one of the homeless shelters downtown and am very excited about it. I think it's important to give back to my home town and community, particularly to the people that need it most. With the help of my suppliers (Ronit Textiles, Tagtime USA to name a few), industry friends, and and other local organizations we will pull it off together.http://www.elleBsee.com
