How to explain what is driving me and moves me for Fall 2012?
It's a love story and an adventure story. More specifically it is the spirit of the woman at the heart of the story that inspires me...
A trailblazer and adventurer who follows her heart, instincts and dreams. A woman who can hold her own in unexpected situations, strengthening the foundation of anything she is involved in. Secure in herself, she always looks forward.
This is just the start....

In the last few months I've seen a few blips in the echosphere that I found quite entertaining as well as something to think about.
I guess it was in the fall when I saw something about a leather covered Ferrari. Cool idea, lots of negative comments. Regarding: cleaning, scratching, water, etc.etc. etc. (with a couple of smart people saying if it's leather, water shouldn't be a problem- cows live outside and get wet- no big deal-they are on it!)

That is if it were REAL leather. Nah- it's not, it's basically a fancy decal. and a poor one at that- weird grain, with poor and very visible repeat (ask a textile designer) even in far shots. Nice idea, poor execution.
My fantasy is that one day they could build that prototype car that had the movable skin- remember that? Was that about 2-3 years ago? The skin would be LEATHER...that's my fantasy.

I hate to think of the chemicals and effort that went into creating that weird leather perfection from China. But I guess if I were into weird leather perfection, I'd be into latex.
...my fetish, my talisman is cut.
We have been happily buried in work. Which, by the by, is why I haven't been here much lately!
Yesterday, we did an event with SkinMedica for a very select group of beauty editors to announce the launch of a brand new SkinMedica product, which will be released sometime in April.
The mood was very intimate and relaxed. Very refreshing and non- rushed and it gave the editors a much deserved moment of chill, very different from what most might associate with a "launch".
So yesterday was spent, (very enjoyably out of the studio for a change!) fitting editors for their own perfect custom leather piece!
