working on the spring collection for next year that i will be showing to buyers shortly. i’m hoping to pick up some new stores i’ve had my eye on in places i’d like to visit (nothing exotic to anyone but me). the collection for next year is pretty special. fabrics i bought that seemed challenging to work with turned out looking effortless when worn. the linen used for skirts and tops are lined in silk voile and feel like you’re wearing a little cloud. the mina dress will be available in a silk print and straight up black silk. the new sundress is airy and fun to wear. it’s been months of work but strangely i sorted out almost every style in a week while taking care of my mom back in june. it’s funny how you can really focus in different situations. meanwhile she’s feeling good and wants me to make her a dress now. i’m glad to.
