We had a great show at the Philadelphia Museum of Art Craft Show. Pleased once again this year that our work appealed to women in their twenties thru their eighties, who want to be stylish as well as warm, makes us feel like we are staying current as well as classic. Thank-you all who purchased, and with this fall freeze I am sure you are happy. If you had your eye on a piece, it may not be too late so give me a call 212.475.8324 or email me!
So many interesting people come to the show as well. Here is Valerie of Idiosyncratic Fashionistas trying on one of our shearling head pieces!
Next up for us is a new show to our schedule, in NEW YORK CITY!
A fundraiser for the historic Cathedral of St. John the Divine, Dec 5th, 6th, and 7th.
Also catch the exhibit of the Phoenix by Xu Bing, on view thru the end of the year.
We are really excited for this one…….Stay tuned for more info!
I spent the day yesterday wandering around the garment center, doing what they call “sourcing”. Looking for components of what we do, parts, fabrics, usually invisible or barely visible aspects of a finished piece. It can be exhausting and a time consuming, but when you find the right thing, its pretty great.
I create my own “catalog” with my iphone, and bring the new ideas, or new sources, back to the studio.
If a project is on “the front burner”, I text the image to Toshiki, we discuss it, and it goes in the bag that day.
Here is some of what I looked at yesterday.
If you have seen our work, you have seen the hand tied frog buttons we make. We cover this type of cording with lambskin strips, which have been skived thinly, stitch the edge to make a long leather “rope” which is then tied into a frog, picture detail of frogs on black shearling coat.
