Vivienne Westwood fall/winter 2015 illustrations

I still have the doodle bug (will I ever NOT?) so I drew more runway looks.  Here is a set of charcoal drawings I did of Vivienne Westwood’s fall/winter 2015 menswear collection.

Katie Eary fall/winter 2015 illustrations

I’ve really been in the mood to draw/sketch/doodle/etc lately.  I was drawn to Kate Eary’s fall/winter 2015 menswear collection, so I decided to illustrate a few of the runway looks.  The color palette was SO saturated I could not wait to bust out my Prismacolors!

Menswear Runway Show Omaha Fashion Week Fall 2013

Last night I had the pleasure of attending Omaha Fashion Week’s Menswear Runway Show. Fellow menswear enthusiast Chris Hughes, the designer behind Artifact Bag Co., joined me for the event.

Chris Hughes (Artifact Bag Co.) and Audio Helkuik on the Omaha Fashion Week Red Carpet

While Chris and I both love menswear, we have drastically different tastes.  I knew it was going to be interesting to go to this show with him.  In the venn diagram of our favorites from the night, I think there was maybe just a single look that overlapped from his favorites and mine.  It was an ensemble by designer Borris Powell.

Designer: Borris Powell

My all-time favorite menswear look of the evening was an outfit by designer Paulie Gibson.  It reminded me of the easy summer go-to outfit: t-shirt and shorts, but awesome instead of lame.  A draped, asymmetrical shirt made out of an interesting fabric paired with fitted, patterned shorts makes this outfit totally covetable. Plus, it seems to be just the perfect level of masculinity that I like to wear myself.  Really into this one.

Designer: Paulie Gibson

As I was enjoying Paulie Gibson’s eclectic design flair on the runway, I wondered what Chris Hughes thought of this spectacle.  His face proves that he was genuinely entertained.

I just love menswear. So glad that I had the chance to see a few collections shown here in Omaha.  Hope to see even more next season!

prysm.break vest

More than anything, my favorite part of being a clothing designer is having the skill to turn a sketch into a wearable outfit.  I’m sure every maker loves seeing this process happen in their own craft, but it still just blows my mind every time.

Scribble sketch of a vest idea for prysm.break.

The photo above shows a scribble sketch and the photo below shows fabric cut into vest pattern pieces.  There’s definitely some patterning magic that happens between the sketch and the pile of pieces ready to be stitched together, but I don’t have the photos to prove it. So, trust me. Magic.

Pile of vest pieces, including a handcut leather prysm applique.

I geeked out about pretty much every detail on this vest.

“Ah! Assymmetry!”

“Yay! Colorblocking!!!”

“OooooOOooohhh. Purple and black! My fav!”

“Fringe!”

“LEATHER!!!!!”

“TRRIIIIIIAANNNNNNGLES!”

It’s a great vest. I love it.  All of it. Every dang detail.

Photo montage of me handstitching buttons onto a finished prysm.break vest.

My partner freaked out about this vest just as much as I did.  I surprised him by hanging this on his closet door!  It’s an “I love you” gift (obviously) and also a “Thank you for being a patient fit model.”  I’m probably the worst fit model for men’s sized clothing, since I’m pretty much child-sized.  I’m thankful he’s willing to help me out.

Perks of being my partner: prysm.break clothing before it’s released.

He was puh-retty pumped about it.  He started to rattle off different outfits and layering options. This is EXACTLY how I want people to see prysm.break!  I want people to look at the garments and accessories and be able to easily visualize them as part of their own wardrobe.

My partner, Cameron, enjoying the silhouette of his new prysm.break vest as it allows him to show off his rodeo belt buckle.

The prysm.break vest (and the rest of the prysm.break collection) is available at www.audiohelkuik.com

My “Creative Black Tie” Etsy Treasury

I love to collect, sort, admire, reorganize, etc.  When I was a kid, I spent almost every single indoor recess sorting and resorting a giant jar of buttons.

When I realized that you could create your own Treasury on Etsy, my inner little kid felt like they were about to get their hands on that button jar.  I can collect my favorite items on Etsy and sort them however I’d like to show the world? I am in.

I curated my first Treasury this morning.  It’s titled “Creative Black Tie” and it’s a collection of items that I think could become part of some really stellar formal-ish outfits for creative types.
