We're excited to introduce our new series LOVE. Women, artists, environmentalists - human beings whose work we love and whose beauty we want to share with you. First up, the prolific Bauhaus textile artist and printmaker, Anni Albers. "Being creative is not so much the desire to do something as the listening to that which wants to be done: the dictation of the materials."
Last month, we had the pleasure of spending a cloudy afternoon with the lovely Tallulah Fontaine. Illustrator, champion of independent designers and Canadian, Tallulah epitomizes the women Bianca designs for - strong, beautiful, creative and intelligent women who care about the stories behind their clothes and the communities they live in. We hope you enjoy the interview, Tallulah is a serious badass AND sweetheart. Be sure to check out her stellar website and follow her on IG. Photography by James Branaman
"Those who dwell among the beauties and mysteries of the earth are never alone or weary of life. Those who contemplate the beauty of the earth find reserves of strength that will endure as long as life lasts. The more clearly we can focus our attention on the wonders and realities of the universe, the less taste we shall have for destruction." Rachel Carson

Last week, we spent a great day with American soul and R&B singer/songwriter Goapele (pronounced gwa-puh-lay), which means “to move forward” in Setswana, a South African dialect. We laughed, ate avocado toast, hung out in the sunny hills of Mt. Washington, Los Angeles and took some beautiful photos of Goapele in her favorite pieces from the spring ’17 collection.
If you have ever emailed Sugar Candy Mountain, odds are you’ve already spoken to our amazing founder, designer, and owner - Bianca Branaman. For the last two years, Bianca has been the one woman show behind the much loved Los Angeles-based slow fashion label. In our first blog entry, we felt it was important to share an interview where Bianca candidly discusses her motivation behind starting Sugar Candy Mountain, where she comes from, her design process, and some of her hopes for the future. If you have the time, take a minute to learn more about the radical human behind SCM.
