Brooklyn-based artist and designer Shabd Simon-Alexander uses hand dyeing techniques to create unique clothing that is more than just easy on the eyes-- they are pieces with depth and feeling. For the past few seasons, the designer has been experimenting with tie-dye techniques for her label, Shabd. Despite the limited edition nature of her collections, basic pieces, such as bodysuits and leggings, available online at shops such as Stand Up Comedy and Not Just a Label as well as her own online boutique, are more affordable than you might think. Right now, I'm in love with the soft romanticism of her S/S '10 collection lookbook. The prints remind me of blurry watercolor flowers.
