This August marks a year of partnering with brand ambassador Tiffany Marie Hill and we are thrilled to continue to bring more sustainable fashion options to the market! Focusing on the best results from the work of trunk sale market research around the country, testing fabrics, and customer feedback, we are launching a multi season/multi climate Capsule Collection.
These are editorial photos of a group of pieces that are sustainable as f*ck. While that is a cheeky expression, it’s energy and attitude is earnest. This collection stands out as being made with 100% sustainable fabrics and sewn fairly in the United States. (Most will be made in San Francisco, though some could be made in LA.) They will be offered in genderfluid sizes Small to 3x . Go here to order now.

The ocean is a constant source of inspiration for my art and I am pleased to bring new creations to the spotlight this March at Rosenblum Cellars. I’ll be presenting oil paintings, watercolors, and limited edition mixed media digital prints on canvas on display all of March 2017.
As an artist and designer, joy infuses my philosophy, personality, and style. I possess a steely determination for activism as irresistible revolution. In art, music, and fashion, the impetus of my life is to find and express truth, beauty, joy and consciousness.
Following my bliss the last twenty years has led me on a winding journey which includes rave ‘zines, live electronic music performance, fabric collage, limited art furniture pieces and a retail store. I am currently art directing, styling, and designing ethical fashion while painting with oils, watercolors, and digital collage.
I have always been driven by a desire to integrate joy and beauty with conscious consumerism. I believe that life is better when happiness is lived in earnest. In the darkest of times, there are none more powerful than those who dare to bring forth light.
Please join us for this beautiful free event and shop art and fashion honoring Earth and Sea and happiness!
Hemp has gone hi-fashion again with another published work with my styling and designing efforts. The prosperity of this plant is multi-mega-extra-mucho. While my redundancy is unnecessary, I simply cannot over emphasize how double-thumbs-up it is and why it is truly a “golden field of prosperity for bank accounts and the environment”.

While many assumptions may be made about the symbolism of the Swankety Snakes, please be assured that they were created from intentional high vibration alchemy for all that is
sweet and pure and good.
My sister, Laura Parsons, did all of the amazing art detail work. The concept came from me. Continue reading
After having worked with Tiffany Marie Hill as Swankety Swank Brand Ambassador for a blissful 6 months, I am keenly aware of this. Continue reading
While that’s a lofty headline and sounds like a claim similar to the 90s diet pill fen-phen being great for your health, I am telling you the truth. And these pants will not be recalled by the FDA.
At this time last year, I rebranded Swankety Swank and launched the new website with the Hemp Collection. After a year of sewing samples, traveling around the country, getting opinions and testing fabrics, I am certain that the launch of the hemp fleece trousers are going to plant a seed that will change everything. You will never know a pants fabric that is more rugged, more cozy, smooth on the outside, “fleecy soft” on the inside and as long lasting as these. And you’ll only find them exclusively from Swankety Swank.
But first, here’s a photo of Rad in a Hemp Duster that is also being launched because doesn’t he look cool? When I told him at our photoshoot that I’d have him wear the duster with a tee that I cut up and would scrawl a positive and semi rebellious word that epitomizes his generation, he called it out. I knew it was perfect. That intuitive knowing from being in a high vibration creative flow state is always genius.
Why the word “feminist” is semi-rebellious is a story to be unpacked by better writers than I, and it goes along with the idea of hemp saving the world. The alignment of equality for women, equality for all humans, protecting our Earth, and healing it is all tied up with us- EACH of us as individuals! Continue reading
Having been focused on ethical fashion since my conception of Swankety Swank as a bag maker in San Francisco circa 2003, I am noticing more and more momentum towards conscious consumerism. This is a good thing for global citizens of course. When all people are considered over profits, everyone wins. Continue reading
The words “magic, sophistication, and modern” describe the jewelry designs of Claudia Kussano. When the elements of the Earth, an artist’s eye, and a maker’s mastery are combined, the quality of style is evident. Aligning with the values of Swankety Swank, Claudia seeks to evoke a symbiotic awareness of the world and our spiritual surroundings. See her work in the following images by Mercedes Abraham on Tiffany, our Brand Ambassador and my photos on the visit to Claudia’s beautiful shop in the Mission.
