A Beauty Collected


Additional Media


Would you try a food you knew nothing about? Or would the flowers of your childhood stick as strongly in your mind if you didn’t know what they were called?
Vocabulary expands appreciation of our surroundings, and in turn, our language shapes our behavior. By featuring items that can be found in one’s own neighborhood (acorns, flowers, herbs) combined with more exotic items (raw turquoise nuggets, wolves’ claws, silkworm cocoons) the imagery in A Beauty Collected is both accessible and designed to expand the mind beyond the backyard. Whether the item is a porcupine quill or vanilla pod, the goal is to encourage inquisitiveness: “What is this item? What purpose does it serve? What does it smell or taste like? Where can I find it?”


About Rachel Garahan

Rachel Garahan is a creative director, artist, and innate nurturer. In all of her work, she is drawn

to what she calls the "elemental connection": the space where nature and the human spirit

overlap. She is the founder of One Part Gypsy, a creative design and consulting agency,

and Call of California, a site dedicated to the allure of the west.

Children, nature, art, adventure. These have been the running currents throughout her life. An

entrepreneur from a young age, she created a resume through childcare and the arts before

leaving Vermont at 18 to explore the world for nearly two years on her own. In college she

studied geography, journalism and poetry. After 15 years of working with children, she

committed full-time to her creative pursuits in 2011.

With a strong root in the worlds of natural beauty and wellness, her work is known for being

clean, modern, and sophisticated. Clients include Yoga Journal and Dr. Andrew Weil, and her

lifestyle has attracted praise from the likes of Josie Maran and Tata Harper.

She is based out of Venice, California where she lives with her husband, son, and two pups. A Beauty Collected is her first book.
