Grey Hall Design_Giving Back_Blog_StarfireCincy

Anne is a member of Starfire and an artistic fashion lover.  She is kindhearted and creative.  In the lull between seasons, we’re always looking for new inspiration and an opportunity to give back. This is why we turned to Starfire and had the privilege of being paired with Anne.  The connection was instant.  Collaborating together to design a trend-setting scarf would let Anne’s painting talent shine, and also celebrate her love of fashion.

Silk Scarf Magazine Tears

The process began with magazine tears and pulling together inspiration boards.  Then we looked for patterns and color themes, soon after splashes of paint began pooling on her watercolor paper.

It was inspiring to see Anne’s face light up as she described how the sun was the center of her design with flowers and butterflies in flight swirling around this fiery center.  Bringing her artwork to life on silk needed a special touch to make it as uniquely beautiful as Anne.  This meant an asymmetrical layout to make room for her iconic signature as the perfect corner accent.

The final touch, trimming the scarf in petal pink, was a haute detail like a museum frame to fine art.

The most rewarding moment of it all… delivering Anne’s original composition as a stunning silk scarf; her own wearable art!
