An appreciation and understanding for the hard working business side that goes into getting the designer’s collections into the stores.
I admit I often do, just after hours. I do love filling my closets with their designs.
Real couture (hand-stitched garments), and designers who embrace raw edges and unique fabrics.
Back in the day, high-quality cashmere that would never pill, and was so soft you never wanted to take it off.
Nicholas K never disappoints!
My Pucci hair scarves. I’m lost without them come summer humidity, plus the eclectic colors and patterns are fun as I never wear prints anywhere else, unless it’s a maxi dress.
All shades of grey (from heather to charcoal).
Huge yet light, made of leather that’s soft as butter, with tons of pockets so I can be organized.
Rick Owens & Nicholas K
My tissue-thin chocolate brown velvet duster coat. It’s a one-of-a-kind made by Michele Lamy (Rick Owen’s wife) from when I was a sales rep for her collection.
Fashion Week in Spain with my husband. Although 35 shows in 3 days wasn’t easy.
NYC & Tokyo.
Funny Face, Devil Wears Prada and September Issue.
“Prints are personal” and “fashion is my passion”.
The fewer taxis you take in life, the more shoes you can own.
Never enough for all the walking I do in NYC.
My Art Deco antique engagement ring, and my hammered diamond bar necklace I designed using the diamonds from my grandmother’s ring I inherited.
Heels (apparently being 5’10” (1.78m) isn’t tall enough).
No, I buy for the style and quality of workmanship.
Often. I love their creative photo shoots.
Jeans (ripped, preferably).
