Highlights from HoldingCourtInc. HomeComing 4/30/2022


Courtney Barriger and Kim Barry invited the public to celebrate a night of fashion, music, art, and story-telling April 30, 2022.

Courtney Barriger, native of Jacksonville, brought her game-changer design house, Holding Court Inc., home for a week of celebration. Her latest collection was highlighted throughout St. Augustine Fashion Week, May 5, 2022 at the Lightner Museum.

Here are some highlights from the special pre-view party to celebrate her journey the last 10 years in building her dream of sustainable fashion, art, story telling and more. https://www.holdingcourtinc.com


"I’ve always been drawn towards things that are inexplicable. The dreams we have at night that sometimes reveal truths you couldn’t possibly know, the times we sense things about other people’s lives… without having been told. The invisible. I’m curious about consciousness, its’ history, and where it is going. And when I turn to my art, the mystery of what I am looking to uncover comes out there. Between drawings, paintings, and stories, my art takes a mystical edge. I’m curious about how our internal world interacts with the physical world. The science of what is happening there, and the spirit. And to me, that connection makes the bodies that house our souls sacred, and it also makes the entire space we live in, Planet Earth, sacred. It’s not just about having clean air, I want to honor the planet as a part of myself. And being drawn to beautiful things, as I am, that has extended into fashion as well. Last year I launched my sustainable fashion brand Holding Court to offer a clean solution to your at home basics that are organic and pay a living wage to the manufacturers. The Fashion Industry is considered one of the top polluting industries in the world, and that bums me out because I love beautiful clothes. So I am telling the story of sustainable fashion, and making it to do my part to keep my connection between the world and spirit clean. I’m very, very excited this year because I think it will be the year I can share a project with you all that is dear to my heart. The Royal Robe is a children’s book of verse I wrote and illustrated that shares the story of how toxic fashion is, but set in a fantasy world where the characters learn to transcend grief and identity. It’s is going to print in Hong Kong with The 14th Factory Art Gallery, and will be available online. Honestly, I think it’s my best work yet. It will be my 4th published book, and my 10th full series of curated art. Do check out my brand and my artwork if you are at all curious. www.holdingcourtinc.com www.courtneybarriger.com Would love to connect with anyone who is curious about sustainability in fashion and who just wants to talk about the mysteries of life. I’m always down."
