One of our long time clients had a dream. A purple leather coat. Over the years she has been a true lover of our work, a patron who has one of just about every collection we ever created, always special order as she has her own unique figure ,as many of us do.
This week she is traveling to Germany to visit family and friends, and wanted to show them all that older ladies can rock a sense of style, as she does, always with a smile on her face. So before shipping that purple leather coat, with a “surprise” silk lining, I had to snap a few pics, on me, although not quite my size, you get the idea! Bon Voyage Helene!
We had such an amazing experience this weekend working with Corey Aldrich at the Electric City Couture runway show and Pop Up event in Saratoga Springs, NY
A fundraiser for Universal Preservation Hall, a Performing Arts Education and Entertainment venue for Saratoga Springs, NY. The restoration of the Saratoga Springs Universal Preservation Hall has been a true community project. The sponsors and attendees came out in full force, we had such a great time meeting and working with all of you. We surely left a piece of our hearts in your community, and hope to be back soon!
Here are some snaps of our trip, preparing for show, fitting some of the models, our pop up shop, time out with local artist friends, including visiting Textile Studio….it was a whirlwind of a weekend!
Having ten gorgeous models assigned to us for the upcoming fashion event at Electric City Couture, (as well as important Jury images need to be taken!) we have been inspired to among other things do our signature annual One of a Kind Color Block coat, this year a short swing on a beautiful black napalan skin.
A new slim shape in black suede, silver zipper, and white stitched lambskin edging. This look can be translated into other shapes as well.
Collecting the right accessories and garments takes time to gather, which is so fun to seek out at the treasure hunt that is the modern Craft Show……so don’t miss out! We are participating in 2 shows this month, and when I have a moment I am shopping my fellow designers booths…..!
Bill Cunningham, you should have made it to the Cobble Hill Historic District in Brooklyn when Etsuko and I were wandering around shooting some pics of her wearing our blue Shearling! Stunning, yes? So ladies, come get yours!
