C-Press | Seattle Post Intelligencer | August 30, 2008

Many thanks to Joe Tartakoff for such a kind and flattering article in today's P-I! This new business of mine has been such a thrill in so many different ways. Public chatter and media attention only makes it more exciting, more fulfilling. And you can't help but get excited to see your own face in color on the front of the business section!

Perfectly Reasonable Daydream: Merge | I Like To Imagine

Perfectly Reasonable Daydream (A result of simultaneous cross-country musings with a dear friend. While I was occasionally thinking it, he was kind enough to put it to words).

Erk: "I love to imagine men and women going down the same runway, wearing the same line."

Sweet | Inspiration

I want to make clothes that move as effortlessly as this, coordinate with as much harmony, and live with as much spirit as Tina and her Ikettes do in this video clip.

Ms. McCaffery | Wedding Day

The results of a custom shirt for Ms. McCaffery on her wedding day. When a client arrives with such playful stripes to respond to, making a custom shirt becomes a joy. I opted to not overpower the vest and jacket, and instead work with a classic ivory sateen.

The removable ruffle offers two completely different looks: 1| a more lavish statement with active movement and decoration, or 2| a classic, tailored feel.
