Sparkle on the Way

I’ve always been a hands-on designer and the more I get my hands on something, the more likely a garment with sparkles will be the final result … I love the technique and craftsmanship behind embellishment and am always inspired working with Vien, our embroidery designer.  Not a detail goes unnoticed in these upcoming collections:  a bodice shines in our Black Tie collection, sparkles are added to a print and chainmail to a tee from Fall 2013.

Something in the way you Love me won’t let me be
I’m not one of those designers that sees a movie and then the next collection looks like, say, Barbarella, but I love when I recognize a style inspiration in my designs…. Madonna’s early videos, especially the look in the Borderline video —- huge influence on me!  I loved the neon socks and pumps, animal print skirt, black tank —-
Feels like I’m going to lose my mind….

Seeing spots

My kids would have loved this installation by artist Yayoi Kusama at the Queensland Gallery of Modern Art.  Kusama created a blank white space and gave visiting children stickers to do what they wish…

Fantastic! 

For a New Years message, our creative team had some crafty and colorful fun with confetti:

Literally punching out the confetti and placing it around to form the letters —- you never realize how big your fingers are or how powerful your breath is until you work with confetti like this!
