News from Peony and Moss Socks

My Knitwear Experience

I was reflecting about my experience in art and design over on my personal blog, www.evamotch.blogspot.com.  I thought it would be fun to share here because what makes Peony and Moss designs special is my background in knitwear.  I absolutely love researching unique knitting techniques and coming up with new creative pattern ideas.  The hardest part of launching Peony and Moss was finding a specialty knitter that had the right unique circular sock knitting machines available and could achieve our special details.   Here's the re-post from my blog:   I'm a knitwear designer.  Right now that means I design...

Where does your inspiration come from?

An arrangement I made from dried flowers   I've been thinking a lot about where I want this business to go and what it is about.  Often I feel like fashion is just inspired by airheadedness and consumerism.   That's not me and that's not my designs for Peony and Moss.  Sometimes it brings me down because I do love fashion and design and art.

Caribbean Photo Shoot-I'm on a boat

British Virgin Islands Caribbean fashion I'm on a boat modeling photo shoot socks startup

    I had an amazing opportunity to photograph Peony and Moss on the Caribbean!  I'm not sure socks on a boat makes sense, or that it's "on brand," but who care's, I'm on a boat!  My husband, Rob, is completely obsessed with sailing, and decided we should charter a boat in the British Virgin Islands.  It was surprisingly difficult to find 5 friends to come along.  Luckily, beautiful and talented photographer Erin Danna came along to both photograph and model my socks!      -Eva Spitzer, Designer
