Many many years ago (in 2009 to be exact) International Playground opened a holiday pop up shop and asked me to put a few pieces on I was working on at the time- some after-work experiments in corsetry and scaffolding- in their shop. I could have never imagined what would come next.
A few months later, inspired by the interested in those cage experiments, I quit my day job as an urban planner in Lynchburg, VA, moved to NYC and started doing Chromat full time out of my Bushwick bedroom. The rest is history.
Thank you Virginia Craddock + John Pizzolato for believing in me and giving me a chance. This weekend we celebrate! See you at the International Playground Holiday Pop-Up!
