“I enjoy creating beautiful worlds, objects and clothing and living inside of them. Making music. Observing. Absorbing. Reflecting. Refining. Redefining.” Lindsay Jones
occupation: designer and stylist
Lindsay lives in a Princess room in a loft that is nothing short of Brooklyn’s version of a castle. It was designed by her best friend and fellow mom, 1990s model Sibyl Buck, and is like wandering around in a fun house for artistic bohemians. There is magic in the cracked and decayed elegance of Lindsay’s boudoir, where broken vases sit in bowls as decoration, and where she holes up reading Russian writers, love letters, and romantic fables about female Turkish Tatars and Mongolians soldiers on horseback. There is an almost tangible, enchanted New York twilight that fills the space. Across the long and cavernous corridors, up stairs and across ramps (Harry Potter-style, filled with fantasy nooks and crannies along the way that make you want crawl into them and never leave) is her design room. It is here where she brings all of her novels to life, creating royal, kimono-inspired hooded coats, dresses, and hand-made weaving with a chunky and folkloric vibe that screams one-of-a-kind. Lindsay is Anna Karenina-meets-fifteenth-century Siberian warrior-meets-Navajo Prairie, with her long blonde locks streaked in powder blues, her white moccassin booties with long skirts and shetland sweaters, and her worn Victorian dresses, where she ties one on top of another as a shawl for a unique and ancient mix of fabrics. She feels that living with her dad (who “didn’t know how to dress her”) in a conservative place like Utah (where she grew up, also with her mom, who was “well-dressed”) paid off. It is here that her unabandoned creative energy was born, beginning in the second grade, wearing bikini bottoms on top of leggings, a la Cyndi Lauper.
