Houston, we have a fashion show
It was another one of those ‘what time zone am I in, and season am I working on?’ weeks  —- as we presented the Spring 2014 collection as part of Houston Fashion Week.   Houston is a vibrant, modern city and the fashion show was like a big party!  Now back to working on Fall 2014 in New York…

You Spin Me Round
Elsa Sylvan, the model in our Resort 2013 Film, was amaaaazing! We were all impressed how she was able to balance in high heels while dancing on a small spinning circular platform … Brava Elsa!

Animal Love
I’ve always had a love for animals and was so happy to hear that my daughter wants to be a veterinarian when she ‘grows up’ … I’m sure a lot of children do but she really does have an affinity for animals that warms my heart. Growing up in New Zealand it was the whales and dolphins that particularly fascinated me, such beautiful creatures.  I was recently moved by the recent documentary on CNN “Blackfish” —- it’s an important documentary about the treatment of animals in captivity;  in particular, Killer Whales at Sea World.  Everybody must see:

Twisted Lily

There’s an amazing new perfume shop in Brooklyn that is such a treat to visit: Twisted Lily. They have a wonderful selection of perfumes, candles and beauty products, of the indie, lesser-known variety as well as cult-favorites I had never heard of. I recently found this gem of a scent, Lady Day, and love the packaging.

Street Art
I’m always so inspired by the creativity at street level:  not only street style, but art as well.  New York has been treated to some wonderful new street art via Banksy recently, and last time I was Paris I was lucky enough to run into some works by Phillippe Baudelocque- my favorite street artist.

Glove Love
If you’re on your way to Antwerp, treat yourself to a visit to this specialty store my partner Beth told me about—- Huis A. Boon —- they sell nothing but gloves, they love gloves and know everything about them.  Find out your glove size (I don’t know mine) and try on a variety of the finest styles.  (Driving gloves: what a wonderful thing!)   I love specialty shops such as this —- where the personal service and the passion for the product make it such a treat to shop there.  Definitely want to visit…
