The influence behind our Spring '16 Collection comes from my deep love for nature as well as the inspiring inner beauty that exudes from the amazing women in our artisans partnerships. The images in this catalog were shot on the 25 acres my family owns just east of Austin, Texas. We like to think of this land as a magical place, and we share it with others as a boutique retreat to rest, restore, and unplug from the craziness of life. I come home from the Raven + Lily design studio and head straight to visit my mini donkeys and alpacas while the sunsets through the trees. I spend my days working on designs, promoting ethical fashion, and advocating for the women in our artisan partnerships. I come home to my precious children, supportive husband, and these gorgeous surroundings. As a family, we try to live intentionally and thoughtfully. We sold 80% of our belongings and currently live in a vintage trailer. We share our yurts and barn with guests who want to slow down and savor life. It only seemed fitting to share this special place with you through our latest collection photoshoot. We hope it inspires you to remember your unique beauty and that today is worth living well. Live it with intention and don't miss out on the beauty in the details that surround us no matter what the circumstance. And thank you for supporting our efforts at Raven + Lily to promote beauty in this world. Because of your thoughtful purchase, you are making a difference in the lives of women globally.
