This show wasn’t really making me rush over to Moma for some reason, but I did
catch it a few weeks ago and found it more interesting than I thought. It’s really about
us, and the wearable things that have become staples in our lives, or have had cultural impact. Here’s a snippet of images…….hurry up, it closes tomorrow!
The studio is humming away as Toshiki and Rose work on the orders you have already placed, and I am packing up to bring our shearling collection to Chicago and Chestnut Hill.
The end of the year, and the beginning of winter are right around the corner!
So get ready, go, shop!
Really looking forward to seeing you all, I enjoy these events, and know you do too!
First up, the fab OOAK at The Merchandise Mart!
Then on to the most charming place during the Holiday Season, Chestnut Hill, PA.
We will be at Gravers Lane Gallery, Dec 13-16,
Come out and have fun!
How quickly it turns, are you ready? We will be on the road from now until mid december with our shearlings, hope you can make it to an upcoming show!
Stay tuned and follow us to find out more!

More inspiration, almost too much to handle, from our trip to the Met earlier this month. I know I know. I’m in a museum, taking photographs of photographs. But these images conjured up so many memories for me, I wanted to take them with me, my particular memories of the photographs of Irving Penn.
As a girl, I started receiving subscriptions to Vogue at a very young age, and it was my bible. It came into my room and brought me to a fantasy land of fashion, of where I wanted to be. It was my visual sanctuary.
My mother made all of my clothes when I was growing up, and after each issue arrived, it was followed by a trip to the fabric mills, to collaborate on trying to recreate the illusion of what I saw. All my aunts were in on it in their own ways. So many of these Irving Penn images from the 50’s and 60’s remind me of my mother and aunts.
Here’s a sneak peak. Show closes July 30.
And we got to play a bit. They had Penn’s backdrop set up that he used in his studio, so as my “photographer” was with me, I got to particpate.
Above, her own words, Rei Kawakubo. We had a chance to catch this show at The Met last week, and I’ve been thinking about it ever since. So interesting to have a conversation from our very different perspectives……my background in fiber art in three dimension, my partner’s in fashion design Haute-Couture, with a very different main inspiration from Yves St Laurent; mine western looking east, his eastern looking to the west, in our young and formative years. Working together for all these years, the push and pull arrives at influences from both. This show is a must see if you are in town.
We are Honored and Delighted to be exhibiting in these two fabulous shows!
