Fall is my FAVE!

Fall is my favorite season. It’s still warm here in southern California, but the crazy fast-paced summer vibe slows down and the city turns back into the sleepy beach town we all love. The kids are back in school, but they also are able to run down to the beach afterwards, and dive under a few waves. I pulled theses designs together inspired by early fall …lingering summer days. The sun sets earlier, but in even more amazing pink hues, and the succulents start to perk back up after the scorching summer heat. The flamingos?… yeah, I just liked them, they definitely are not wandering around Southern California. (They do kind of remind me of my teenage girls, milling about in a group with their friends). If you want to see more of my seasonal collections, sign-up for my emails… don’t worry, I don’t send too many.


Hi! I bet some of you have travelled over from my past life (website) as Fable Design and hopefully some of you are just finding me. Either way, I'm happy you are here and I'm also excited and a bit worried that I have switched to being just ME, Alison Janssen as a brand. 

And NOW more new, I have been so LUCKY this month to work with the talented Lauren Page, owner of CocoKini. Her swimsuits are beyond drool worthy. We live in Southern California which means we don't really have a swimsuit season, my girls and I are always on the lookout for new suits even in December. So the fact that we own a zillion we consider ourselves addicts and experts :) Lauren's are beautiful as well as expertly crafted, a very hard combo to find.  Here is a peek at a few of the fall suits in a couple of my designs, Black & White Mountains and Watercolor Dots
