Here's a run-down from the Alchemy Trunk Show at Feathers Boutique Katy attended with the LWR ladies, Stephanie and Bekah:
Friday night kicked off a busy weekend for us. Feathers Boutique hosted a trunk show for their latest collaboration with Alchemy Design, an Austin-based print graphic duo with a touch of mystic. It was an intimate affair as people -- mostly other Austin vintage-heads and style aficionados -- gathered in Feather's cozy quarters to browse the designs of Ed Davis and Christina Simon aka the minds of Alchemy. The Feathers-Alchemy line of shirts and tanks is without name, but the designs speak for themselves. Geometric patterns and ancient Egyptian symbols set on hand-dyed shirts evoke a sense of mystery and power, as though wearing an Alchemy design will embed you with advanced universal understanding. The inspired designs consist of the Eye of Horus, a symbol for protection and good health; the Hamsa, which is a universal sign of protection; the Horus Falcon, one of Ancient Egypt's oldest dieties; and the Ajna, the sixth Chakra associated with the Third Eye. It's no wonder half the show's attendees were wearing Alchemy's shirts or stocking up. We'll let you in a little secert too -- LWR is scheming on a collaboration with Alchemy.
