Millee Spears of Khismet Wearable Art
Millee has been a resident of Historic Anacostia for the last 14 years and has been designing wearable art for most of her life. She is inspired by indigenous, hand-worked textiles from many cultures. She also hand-paint, bead, and appliqué to create unique, one of a kind pieces. The December Collection will consist of comfortable, interesting, pieces designed to provoke thought and promote conversation.

Charita Powell of Amazulu and Chaya Designs
Charita Powell has been in business for 27 years and has been designing jewelry and home lighting décor for 20 years. Charita was initially inspired to do business and create jewelry by the brothers on the street in the 70’s and 80’s vending their hand-made jewelry. She was later inspired by the Green Movement and her exposure to other cultures through her travels. For 1 ½- 2 months every year Charita travels to the forests of Indonesia to forage for raw materials to be used in her lighting fixtures designs; many consisting of coconut shell, teak and bamboo. The pieces are hand-made by a family business based in Indonesia

Stef N’ Ty
     Designer Stefanie Dickey of Stef N’ Ty fashions has been extremely busy these days preparing her winter collection which features hats made from a variety of textiles including up-cycled denim, decorator fabrics and hand-dyed woolens. She will also be featuring One-of-a-Kind Coats and shrugs. Stef is inspired most by textiles. The colors and textures speak to her and tell her what the garment should be. Fall is her favorite season and she is in a creative frenzy. She sews for the average woman doing one size fits all (10-22) and will do smaller sizes as a special order.

Art by Nicole
   Nicole Summers is a passionate young artist who is a wife and the mother of two young children. She is a graduate of Duke Ellington School of the Arts. She is inspired most by emotional music and emotional states in general. Her collection consists mostly of musicians!! Her current favorite pieces of work are an image of musician Lauren Hill and the very controversial piece of Marvin Gaye which will be on exhibit at the December Blank Space show. In the mean time Nicole is a commercial artist, designing logos, and cards etc.
