Sneak Preview

Posted above is a sneak preview of my upcoming fall collection.  It's my Downtown Bag in mustard colored cotton corduroy. My recent trip to the Garment District was quite a success and my studio is now stocked with corduroy in lots of new colors. I love working with this textile. Its got a luxurious yet casual feel and works with so many designs. I also purchased lots of new cotton fabric in cool retro-look prints that I plan to use to line my handbags with. One of my favorite parts of the creative process is searching out new textiles. I walk the aisles of the shops in the Garment District feeling each fabric as I pass. Sometimes a color catches my eye or sometimes a texture can. I usually have to maintain a lot of self-control so I do not end up purchasing more than I can carry back to my studio!
