Q&A with Mabel Martinez & Alycia Anthony of 3rd Season

How did you two meet and why did you decide to work together?

Alycia and I first met in college. We were both studying Fine Art and became best friends. We both share an obsession with textiles and all things fabric. We wanted to explore various traditional techniques while remaining influenced by our artistic foundation.

Can you describe the process for creating your textiles and collections?

When starting a new collection, we set aside special days that we call “Playtime”. We choose a couple of mediums or techniques to explore ideas that we have been gathering on our phones and notebooks. This part of the process is more exploration than anything else. From there, we focus on few to pursue further.

Tell us about your brand name.

Our name symbolizes both of us being born in the 3rd season of the year and, starting our business during the 3rd decade of our lives – our 30’s.

How do you spend your free time?

Alycia plays the ukulele and is pretty good! I enjoy cooking and trying new recipes. Together, we enjoy going to local gigs and art shows as well as traveling.

Jewelry Pop-up With Denise Heffernan

Jewelry Pop-up With Denise Heffernan

For the months of June and July we will be showcasing the lovely handcrafted silver jewelry by Denise Heffernan.

denise heffernan

San Francisco Jeweler Denise Heffernan’s inspiration is as much informed by the material and process of making as by the patterns and symbols she explores. Fascinated by archetypal designs found from ancient art, to the innate natural patterns of earth science, such as wave and sound forms, textures and natural phenomena, geometric and abstract forms. Creating an interconnection, an interpretation of these patterns in metal. 

Denise Heffernan Ring

In love with the process of making objects from these ideas she weaves the patterns together. Growing up in a creative family, and with an affinity for making, Denise was encouraged from an early age to participate in art and craft. After training in Fine Art in Dublin Ireland, her hometown, she moved to California and attended school to become a pattern maker in San Francisco while working for local independent fashion designers. All the while she maintained her own art practice and continued studies and classes in sculpture, metal arts, ceramics, drawing, Philosophy, sociology and art history. While making found object sculpture she began producing jewelry after a friend commissioned a wearable piece. Denise apprenticed at the studio of David Navarro, a San Francisco sculptor and jeweler until he retired, designing and fabricating part of his collection. Since then she has been the sole independent artist designer and maker of her own studio collection. Each piece is hand fabricated one at a time using recycled silver, each design is original. Her work is available through stores and galleries.

Taylor Jay is an Oakland, California clothing brand making elevated fashion basics using locally-sourced sustainable fabrics. 
 

THEIR STORY

Founder and CEO, Taylor Jay, began designing fashion for herself during a transitional period of her womanhood when her body was changing significantly in size and shape, and the fashion industry didn’t cater to her journey. She soon discovered that many other women shared the same experience, and what began as a journey of self-discovery has become a promise to all women to empower them with clothing that will adapt to their evolution.

Summer Pop-up w/ Textilehaus

Summer Pop-up w/ Textilehaus

Textilehaus summer pop-up

Visit the shop Saturday, July 21 from 12p-3p for our final pop-up of the season! 

Textilehaus is founded by Anastasiya Yatsuk. Her appreciation for minimalist clothing was developed at a young age through shopping rules set by her mother. In Russia, she was allowed to buy clothing twice a year and had to create samples of the garments she desired in order to learn the time and skill required to make each piece. These lessons taught her to choose versatile pieces that would compliment her existing wardrobe. She also spent summer afternoons at the Ukrainian military warehouse where her grandmother worked. Playing with utilitarian uniforms reinforced her fondness and respect for simple, thoughtful design. 

Her current collection is made in San Francisco, CA using Japanese cotton.

Lacson Ravello Pop-up

From the designer:

The story of LACSON RAVELLO begins with strong family roots in the garment industry. Kristina Lacson McConnico was born to Filipino parents and descended from a long line of dressmakers and fashion designers—grandmothers, aunts, and cousins. Upon establishing her own brand, she incorporated her surname, Lacson, and her grandmother’s maiden name, Ravello. For her, this family name captures the heritage and values that define her clothing line—a tradition of strong craftsmanship and quality materials, combined with a modern and design-driven approach.

Originally from St. Louis, Kristina knew at a young age that she wanted to follow her family’s path in the fashion world. A skilled visual artist during her teenage years, she moved to Los Angeles to attend Otis College of Art & Design. Early exposure to leaders and icons in the fashion industry had a profound influence on her evolution as a designer.

After college, she relocated to San Francisco and worked for companies such as Gap Inc., Bebe, and the Gymboree Corporation—in addition to building her expertise as a design consultant for smaller fashion labels and startups. Her two decades of industry experience have led her around the world numerous times, from production facilities in Asia to buying and research trips in Europe and all over the U.S. This global perspective followed Kristina as she created the LACSON RAVELLO brand. Her dedication to being a citizen of the world while keeping a relaxed California sensibility continues to inform her life and her work.

Kristina currently lives in Oakland with her husband John and their cats Coco and Clementine. She is also a breast cancer survivor and thriver.
