I’ve been having the best time helping friends and customer-friends figure out what pieces from the Sapona River collection will do best for them. I feel like we’re resurrecting the lost art of the atelier designer and client relationship. Are you familiar with The House of Eliott?
I was a young lass when it first debuted and I remember catching it on tv randomly and falling madly in love with every piece of the process. I thought Evie the most beautiful creature. And I have to say that the storyline of trials and hurdles in the apparel design studio world are pretty accurate. I have experienced the same heartbreaks and triumphs. Though in tvland – they triumph much more than they heartbreak.
Also – while we’re on fabulous period tv series – I cannot wait for next season’s Downton Abbey – yet wait we must – I think it comes out s/s12. I adore period series and movies for the costuming. Look at fabulous Mary in her lilac shirt and pearls.
Off to the studio to cut and drape. Have a beautiful Monday.
OH. MY HEART.
LOVE Downton Abbey- sumptuous!
Oh good – let’s run away into period films and drive funny old cars with wonderfully rude sounding horns.
JUST finished watching Downton Abbey Season 1 again and can’t wait for 2 to start up…why must they make us wait so long!?
