Here are some great shots of my signature line, Peekaboo , with Goorin Bros. All the illustrations on the interiors are high end prints taken from original paintings I created. The inspiration behind these paintings were stunning photos of Jesse Lee and Justine, captured by Ken Goto . The actual product shots were done by another very talented photographer, Dylan Maddux, and my models were the lovely Tatiana Suarez and Olga . All the hair fascinators were designed by Christa Baker. This was such an amazing group of people to create and be inspired with!!

I am very pleased to announce the launch of my custom line with Goorin Bros. called 'The Peekaboo Collection'. There will be an event at the North Beach Hat Shop in SF to celebrate the release, this Friday, November 16th from 6-9pm.

Inspired by the secretively risqué "Peekaboo" ties popular with gentlemen in the 1940's, this collection juxtaposes seriousness with sexiness, masculine with feminine and functionality with decorative. But the story of this collection came in threefold. First, Amandalynn collaborated with Goorin's original custom designer, Christa Baker, to produce headpieces complimenting the theme of Peekaboo. These pieces were then featured on Amandalynn's muses, Jesse Lee and Justine for a photo shoot with photographer Ken Goto. With all artists' talents combined, the resulting photos were nothing but jaw-dropping to say the least.
Finally, the photos became Amandalynn's inspiration for four original paintings - all of which contributed to the completion of the new collection showcasing hat styles for both men and women along with ties. Although a few new additions this year are: head-turning fascinators and hairpieces for women, hand painted limited edition items and custom Peekaboo hat boxes.
Please come join me in celebrating this inspiring and enticing line at our Peekaboo Release Party at the North Beach Goorin Shop in San Francisco, this Friday, November 16th. Thanks so much to everyone involved!! -Amandalynnn

Alynn-Mags , consisting of Amandalynn and Lady Mags, are notoriously recognized by their street art compilations. However, they have started experimenting in a new realm of art, combining their fine art talents, and creating a whole new look for the artistic duo. Amandalynn is normally noted for her alluring female illustrations and fine art paintings, while Lady Mags' fine art tends to be more abstract, relying on color and shape to depict her intentions. These two new pieces are an exciting new step for both Amandalynn and Lady Mags, and they are excited on creating a series of similar work.
