i couldn't help but start on a small collection for winter .. nothing to be worn in the snow or to bare the cold but pieces that give you a feeling of being enchanted when worn (eyes rolling i'm sure, i don't blame you). but these pieces really might lend you a little magic. i hope to shoot everything soon at an old ivy-covered church near my house. i went by there this morning after i dropped my daughter off at school and spied a little footbridge over a creek behind the church - and yeah i gasped. i love things like that. places like that. everything is covered in wet leaves, broken branches, creeks are full .. we've had some beautiful rain. the collection! the valentina dress will be available in "sea glass" silk / hemp and for drama, a black silk indian dupioni. the pintuck blouse with a balloon sleeve will come in an amethyst silk devore. the biba jacket will be sewn to order in black or dusky blue silk velvet. the valentina blouse will be available in a bordeaux colored silk organza with camisole for underneath. i think the blouses would be great with just a pair of jeans and high heels to go out or flats .. the dresses - gah they are BIG! architectural practically. but in a soft, beautiful way - wearable. as in to a party where everyone remembers you in that dress.
