Yes I work for them. Yes I love them.
My favorite looks at the dkny show included a grouping of the most amazing greens and blues I've seen in a while. The colors were really unexpected and when they came out everyone was in awe. Even the most classic pieces in the collection had thoughtful details. This is why I am proud to be , even a small part, of the DKNY team.
If you don't already follow @dkny on twitter you are missing out... on my illustrations ;)

back to fashion week- chris benz

One of my favorite presentations at fashion week, other than Reem, was the one and only Chris Benz. I always enjoy Chris' collections b/c they are always very bright and cohesive.

Chris clearly has major celeb support, and he is just so amazingly friendly (spent the entire evening saying hello to everyone he possibly could).

The models danced to the loud music- and sometimes posed for photos. Their moods matched the cheery music that filled the room.

Some of you know, I have been a fan of all things Benz for a while now. That you so much Chris, and my good friends at Krupp for inviting me to see this collection in person this year!

backstage bcbg

Had a really nice time at the bcbg show. I had a nice time with a few friends backstage- it was amazing to see the clothes hanging on racks beforehand, and then watch them come to life on the runway. Here are some of my photos, mixed in with the press photos.

My favorite dress came out late in the show. It reminded me of a vintage nightdress. so of course, I drew it for you. Hope you enjoy.

ports 1961

I kicked off my crazy fashion week at Ports 1961. If this was any indication how the rest of the week would be I was sure to be a happy girl. The collection was really pretty- all wearable, but someting unique about each. I especially loved the rich colors that were shown- purple, green and blue (ps: the purple number needs to be a part of my wardrobe.)
One thing that will stand out in my mind from this show is the minute this dress came down the runway. It sparkled so much in real life as the model walked that everyone in the crowd was silent for a moment-and then flashbulbs went off everywhere.

Wednesday, September 8, 2010

Work has been so busy, and I leave for fashion week soon. I can't help it that my wedding anniversary falls right before the big week, so I spent the long weekend at my old home Walt Disney World.
 A little known fact- I lived in Orlando for some time, and worked for the mouse. Even drew for him before I moved back north.  Today I am back to the real world of art and fashion.
Where no one wears mouse ears.

pump it up

I tweeted about these months ago to find out a) what they were called b) how much they were and c) where when and HOW I could get my hands on them the very second I saw them in this pretty louis vuitton ad:
turns out the "beauty pumps" by louis vuitton are just that. and I want them so badly. in any color.

ph design

First of all If you'd like to know a bit more about me: check this out !
My new custom stationary is in! I have been mailing at least 2 original paintings or illustrations a week for months now and I like to include a little handwritten note in each, so a few weeks ago I commissioned ph design shop to design custom stationary for me! 
Do you love it?! The chevron stripes are so "me"- and I love how my signature is debossed in the simple white notecard. Couldn't be happier with the final result.
some other things I love at phdesign: this card, these ruled thank you notes, aaaamazing ribbon
