My bags are packed, I’m ready to go…

My mind keeps wandering to a big life change that is looming resplendently in front of my hubby + me – our migration out of NYC.  We are moving to Winston-Salem, NC + soon – September 28th. I know it is big news! And I know many people are wondering intently why…While over the last ten years this glorious city has given me its all, no holds barred, I have found my sense of well-being dwindling.  The lifestyle here has become so intense, that creative thoughts fly in + out as quickly as they came without even the hope of being executed.  The point of me being a fashion designer is so that I can be creative, but the daily grind here has cut me off from so many of my favorite arty past times, like photography, screen printing + sewing.  I want to get back to the salt of the earth again + live a slower pace! And the move is a great way to expand loyale’s reach, as loyale will still have a presence in NYC while I explore the myriad eco-mills and factories down South.  We have spent time in Winston-Salem + love it; there are great restaurants, neat music venues + loads of culture/art…it reminds me of Austin 10 years ago.  We are going to live in a charming 1930s bungalow with Wholefoods minutes away by my Schwinn bicycle…and in due time I will be opening a loyale showroom + shop in a retrofitted tobacco factory downtown. Plus I will be visiting NYC every month for several days, so I am getting the best of both worlds…it is all very exciting.

I will be Twittering the move + keeping you updated about the happenings…follow me here to get the play by play: http://twitter.com/JennyHwa.

 Eco-chic peace, xoxo, Jenny
