Wasted Pleats

New York City’s Garment District is pretty quiet on the weekends. I was there on Saturday shopping for curtain fabric when I saw this discarded pleating paper. A work of art in itself, someone removed their pleated fabric from its paper and tossed it a side.


simply spring…

My feet are frantic to get out of the boots this season, and I can’t blame them! With all of these stunning sandals haunting me around every corner, I can’t help  but think Spring! Here is a small collection of simply classic styles that I have considered for my first purchase of the Spring season…   Pairing the simple soles with inspirational images (although the shoes are inspiration enough), I hope this helps you pick out a great Spring Sandal!

In love with these enchanting photographs taken by Alice Rosati for Crudo Spring/Summer 2011. The ease of the silhouettes and the movement of the fabric are beautifully depicted in these images.

February Design: Linear Blocked Top

Inspired by the lines in the streets I pass over everyday, I designed this Linear Blocked Top. I turned to the photographs of Alice Rosati and Eliot Lee Hazel for color direction; almost army green, dusty peach and simple ivory.

A loose-fitting, easy to wear top that I will most likely live in, come Spring.

Oh de Toilette

 These are some of my all time favorite images taken by Simon Leigh. A lived in, haphazard bathroom series entitled “Oh de Toilette”.
