One of my very favorite ladies, the fabulous Amber of eZriah Design, has been visiting me for the past day and a half.  In tribute to this remarkable lady and designer, I did this illustration of her as a gift.  I wanted to share it with all of you as well.  Let me know what you think!

Hello and welcome to Style Fuss!

I’ve been blogging for nearly ten  years now (wow) on-and-off using different sites and subject matter.  For the past few years I’ve been more or less addicted to what began as a handful of fashion blogs and now has become an out-of-control number of fabulous blogs I add to on a daily basis (some of my consistent favorites are listed in my Blogroll).

I’m an illustrator with a BFA in Graphic Design.  I have plans for grad school in something fashion related but I’m having a tough time narrowing it down!  There are so many aspects of art and fashion that I would love to get my hands dirty with!

I have always loved fashion – raised in the studio of my mother and grandmother, a team of independent fashion designers, I really had no choice but to relish in the fashion world since birth.

I want this blog to be a place to celebrate everything I love about fashion as well as how it integrates so seamlessly with art and culture.  I also want to use this blog to become a part of the fabulous community of fashion bloggers that I have come to love over the past few years.

I would love as much feedback as possible and I hope that you, future readers, will help me create a sense of community here at Style Fuss.

The bottom line is – Fashion is fearless, fun, and definitely something to make a fuss about!
