Meet Daisy Linhares of All Things Fabulous in Venice Beach

Today we’d like to introduce you to Daisy Linhares.

Daisy spent much of her time growing up on the beaches of her native South Brazil. But when the sun went down or winter closed in, her imagination quickly turned to the whimsical stories that inspire today’s collections. From recycled scraps of fabric and trims, she created endless outfits and characters to while away, her childhood and sew the seeds of future endeavors. First came world travel and when she eventually landed in the vibrant community of Venice Beach – where art, eccentricity and a relaxed lifestyle intersect – something resonated and she decided to stay.  She found a world of morning surf and Sunday bike rides, lazy art crawls and all day pancakes; and from here, in 2012, she launched All Things Fabulous and opened the doors to a small boutique on Abbot Kinney Blvd. Always comfy and cozy, ATF embodies the playful dreaminess of beach life through the ever-expanding possibilities of textile printing. Every ATF piece is designed and made in downtown Los Angeles, where they provide American jobs and thrive to reduce their environmental footprint. Daisy still loves to tell stories, so their laid-back garments tell tales of safaris and cabin fever, magic and doodling. Take a closer look and you’ll see that ATF is full of imaginative choices and fascinating characters like drumming bears, winged tigers and skiing squirrels. Can you tell that they love animals?

We’re always bombarded by how great it is to pursue your passion, etc. – but we’ve spoken with enough people to know that it’s not always easy. Overall, would you say things have been easy for you?
The creative aspect is always the reason why someone goes into the business I would say. ATF started off as a little shop on Abbot Kinney and a collaboration with Ron Herman in LA and Japan. From there, things have evolved in a very organic way. That being said, it’s definitely challenging at times. Manufacturing can be its own beast until you find the right people to help you out, from initial patterns to complete production. Since our garments go through so many steps with textile print, brushing, dye, even before it gets cut and sew, there are several things that can happen. We have been blessed to work with really good capable people, which makes that whole process a lot easier.

So, as you know, we’re impressed with All Things Fabulous – tell our readers more, for example, what you’re most proud of as a company and what sets you apart from others.
ATF is best known for our prints and super soft hand fabrics. I like to look at ATF as a collaboration where we work with people we enjoy and respect. At ATF we all wear a lot of different hats. I feel it’s important to know different aspects of the business. However, we do distribute the work based on people’s strengths. I’m lucky to have great help in the office! As for my role, I get to do the creative stuff. I come up with the concept for the season, color story and silhouettes that have comfort without compromising style. I think what differentiates us from other brands is the fun/whimsical step and repeat textile prints on loungewear.
