Every piece of clothing has its story...

Retell it!

Guilty Pleasures

Something about the show Gossip Girl is wildly cheesy yet the fashion keeps me sufficiently entertained. The wardrobe although mixed with the gaudy hair and makeup of a wannabe 16 year old, is well done with school uniforms that are very sweet and stylish. Of course there are moments when certain characters or extras on the show look completely over thought much like an Forever 21 ad, but each episode finds a way to introduce at least one piece that somehow brilliantly retains the shows style credibility.

Speaking of gaudy hair and makeup Snoop Dogg's lastest video is another random gulity pleasure of mine. Tres 1970's. Trashy yet wonderfully entertaining. My eyes are pleased each time I watch it. The netting on his church hat is just the tip of the iceberg.

Love child

When Vivienne and Melissa get together they make one hell of a collaboration. If this isn't the cutest shoe ever then Mary has yet to meet Jane. The black and electric blue will be quite the story with dresses from our Holiday 2008 Premiere Collection.

A Romantic Notion

Romanticism began in the late 18th century and ended in the mid 19th century. The Romantic movement can be described as a reaction against Neoclassicim in which the style is full of emotion and beauty with many individualistic and exotic elements. Oh the the ruffles, the layers, the lace, the sleeves, the full shoulders. The most beautiful fashions have ALREADY been created!!!!! Underground Love Story Holiday 2008 is brilliantly inspired by details of this romantic era.

An old treat

Today I ran across a old project that I completed my first year in design school several years ago. The line's first collection was called “Paint the Town Red” the bio read as…

This is clothing line for the woman who at any age is full of confidence. She’s bold energized, fearless, and nothing short of stylish. This is the woman who grabs your attention as she leads a business meeting wearing pumps, leather pants, and a cropped blazer. She is an icon who demands attention weather she is performing at an sold out arena, walking down a crowded city street, or running to catch a bus. It is a collection of flirty yet sophisticated clothing, that mixes bright colorful fabrics with tailored pieces. It is intelligently energized while still maintaining a underlining sense of subtlety. To my customer fashion is not only a pleasure but a means by which she maintains her individuality, and ability to express herself. She is confident in her style and refuses to change it so instead she searches for people who appreciate her soul. She is an icon, she is Tina Tuner, Cher, Dontella Versace, she is the etcetera, but most importantly she is me, and she inspires you. You will recognize her when you see her, she’ll be the lady in red when the rest of the world is wearing black.
