We’ve always been interested in the blending of genres here at Baby & Company (remember our fashion show/dance performance with Lingo Dance? Or all those costumes from the Seattle Ballet strung from our rafters?) We dig art being fashion and fashion being art. This February we are introducing an artist who turned our heads with her fashion sense, and inspired us with her wild, scribbling graffiti. Meet La Tagueuse Élégante, an ‘American in Paris’ with a penchant for marking up the exteriors of fashion houses, museums, and shops with her repititious “elegant’ handwriting. Often inspired by fashion, La Tagueuse Élégante has tagged Paris’s Le Bon Marché, Paul Smith, Ken Okada Boutique, Courrèges, Musée d’ Orsay, and Balenciaga… and this February, Baby & Company, Seattle USA.
La Tagueuse Élégante, aka Catharine Cary, will envelope Baby & Company with words of LOVE, words of FASHION & STYLE, songs, poems, quotations, whatever feeling inspires her. We hope some of this inspiration will come directly from YOU, our customers! YOU are the beating heart of Baby & Co. and know us better than anyone. YOU can tell Catharine just what it feels like to walk into Baby & Co. She will put your words on our walls FOR ALL ETERNITY, how cool is that? (ok a season, a season, but in fashion that’s kind of like an eternity, right?)
