Welcoming the New Year

It is time to cleanse our design palettes and bring in fresh ideas, and refine our tried and true ones. I have been inspired by a young woman I met on the street in New York one evening in the fall. I had been curious about blogging...........she appeared out of nowhere asking for subway directions, and my friend and I chatted with her for almost an hour. She described herself as a "global nomad", a model and a blogger..........equally interested in fashion and technology. Wow that is me, so I have been following her blog, 360fashion, as she reports from around the world. Another very exciting fashion/blog development comes from the Metropolitan Museum of Art. It's a beautiful page, check it out.
My new year's resolution-to be more informative on my blog with things that I see and hear-it will make me take notice of what's going on as well.

Show Season is over!

It is now time to be quiet in the studio and get all the orders done so our customers can be warm and cozy in shearlings this winter that is already proving to be a very cold one.

The Washington Craft Show

The Washington Craft Show turned out really well for us. The weather turned cold on the weekend,
and some of our loyal customers came wearing Toshiki and Maryszka coats they had purchased in the
Here is Beverly in one of her Toshiki and Maryszka collection, a long shearling. And Judy who came down from New York to see the show, wearing a red quilted lambskin coat we
made for her quite a few years ago.

We also had some fun in the city playing and eating good food, one of our favorites is Sushi Taro, which has some of the best traditional Japanese food.
