Kim and Proper Studio Tour

As a small fashion start-up, I spend most of my incredibly versatile days in my studio.  One day there will be dresses and fabrics on every surface, the next day it’s the set of a photo shoot all while acting as storage and fulfillment center. Frankly, most of the time it’s a chaotic working mess but it still represents who I am, what my style is and what I love. Here I share some behind-the-scenes photos of my studio space (albeit cleaned up just a bit!).

Inspiration Board

My inspiration board is covered in pages torn from magazines, fabric samples and (most importantly for me!) a very big calendar!


Mood Board and Bookshelf

We have books all over our house, but my particular favorites are kept right beside my desk.  I’ve read most of them 3 or 4 times.  These bookshelves are also a landing pad for my greatest antique finds (or junk as they are sometimes referred to by my family).


Fabric Swatches

My desk is always covered – usually in fabric samples, fashion books and a cup of tea in fine china (okay, it’s usually coffee in a paper Peets' cup.)


Laptop and Flowers

My one luxury is fresh flowers. They add life and beauty to an otherwise chaotic atmosphere!
