Harris Tweed in Production

Harris Tweed Samples in the Studio

As we all know, the top designers already have their fall collections created, photographed and on the runway. So I'm a little behind. I just started work on my upcoming Harris Tweed Fall Collection this past week. I did make my selections, order fabric and receive my tweed from Scotland a while back. I went for two themes, water and earth.  It was so difficult choosing. I wish I could afford to order every color/pattern available. Or at least have a shop nearby so I could purchase whatever inspires me at any given moment.

It's hard to think of wool with temperatures in the 90's here. Even a dip in the pool is not that refreshing right now since the water is luke warm from the sun beating on it all day. But if I want to have a nice selection of bags in the shop by September, work must begin now. So for the next month you will be able to find me in my air-conditioned studio with piles of gorgeous tweed being transformed into handbags.

Summer bags will also be created in small batches. And as always, custom orders are welcome!
