I’m feeling quite festive today so I decided to skittle it up and taste the rainbow. Might as well because something needs to ward off this wintery mix that has reared its head once again.
For all of you who responded to yesterday’s post about the NYC Garment Center Town Hall – just to let you know it was a really engaged crowd and panel discussion. I’ll be posting an overview later tonight on the Source4Style blog: S4.
Our field research intern, Jessica, will also be coming in to the office today to present her experience+data collection from factories in the garment industry. Hopefully by being involved in all of this initial research, we’ll be able to come up with a useful tool via Source4Style to bring more business to the garment centers and help designers find what they’re looking for more easily. All those updates will be via the SMARTER GARMENT CENTER™.
As for my LBD? Let’s see. I really layered it on: I left a few buttons secured at the bottom & stepped through it. The amazing confetti-like ruffle sweater is by Carasan Designs. Tagua nut bracelet+necklace (Palma Collection); Guatemalan beaded bracelet (Mercado Global); feather headpiece (Emily Clark); vintage leather heart inlay Rancho Loco cowboy boots (Atomic Fireball); vintage hand-painted Mexican folklore falda circa 1950s (RaimentRevival);
