It’s All About The Colors…

Two years already, and I still love this silk duchesse gown! This shade of green wasn’t that popular then, but it seems to have inspired a few copies out in the ether…the perils of being a trendsetter. This was Pantone 2018’s Color of the Year #15-0950, the 2020’s prediction is “Classic Blue”. Time for a deep blue gown! 🙂

Goodbye 2019!

New clients, more travel, a corgi puppy added to the family….I am grateful for the blessing of another year spent with friends, family, and fabric shopping! This gown was a confection of silks and extant laces, and I enjoyed every minute wearing it. Most of my 2019 work was for clients, so next year’s pictures will be fun.  🙂

And We’re Back!

It was a long week in England and we’re still recovering a bit. Now it’s time to get back into the normal routine and catch up on everything that’s been going on in LA in our absence. Interestingly enough, it seems that the weather from Bath followed us home and it’s been cool and cloudy here in Southern California- go figure. 🙂 Over the next week or so, we’ll be posting pictures from our trip and otherwise commenting on everything we did over there. In the meantime, here’s a few pictures to get you started…

Flying out…
