Kelly Wearstler, HUE Book Signing

Kelly Wearstler Hue Book Signing

One of my favorite moments last week was attending an event hosted by Gump’s in San Francisco.  Kelly Wearstler was in town to sign a copy of her latest book HUE – an ode to her signature style which is all about daring color and pattern choices.  I was so excited to attend the book signing and to meet Kelly in person!

Kelly’s work has been such an inspiration for my own line.  A color aficionado, I love how she embraces bright colors, accessories, and how masterful she is with mixing patterns.

I have to admit that I was a little intimidated to meet such a design idol.  But as I walked up to get my book signed I saw that Kelly was down-to-earth, approachable, and sincerely interested in speaking with each person who brought their copy of HUE to be signed.

Standing to meet people, instead of from behind a desk, she immediately asked me about me and my work.  All of a sudden I found myself talking about AphroChic, and how much her work inspired me.  It was a wonderful conversation with a design icon.

You can read more about the day and the time I had meeting Kelly over at High-Heeled Foot In The Door.  I documented the entire day and took a few of my own pics enjoying my brand new book.
