fan mail!!

a wee bit of recent fan mail :) thanks to everyone and your kind words.

"Thank you so much!! They are amazing...I love the think tank so much (and my mom and little sister are already sooo jealous...may need their own haha). It will actually be great for teaching in since it is a little longer (plus I feel pretty). As usual - love your stuff!"

"Your designs and store are my discovery of the year!"

"I love both dresses, they fit perfect and I am thrilled to see you support animal welfare."

"...your line is really lovely. I enjoyed the Summer collection and love the Fall line even more!"

"thank you for your wonderful clothes!"

"I purchased a [Honey Bee Tent] top from "Awear" in Collingwood Ontario in the winter of 2009 and I love it!!!!!! I want to buy more. I was wondering if you had any left and if so I will order at least 6 or 7 in different colours if available."

"Thank you so much! I'm as big a fan of you :) I love my dress, it's perfect. Thank you!"

everyone should be so lucky...

Marketa Irglova in our Moth Dress and Wish-Upon-A-Starfish top

music has always been a huge part of my creative process - and there has been so many nights of my designing that was accompanied by the music of Swell Season and the hauntingly beautiful vocals of Marketa Irglova.

can you hear the music, feel it, woven into the the fabric of my designs?

everyone should be so lucky to find a friend, a song, an artist who strikes a chord with them (no pun intended), who inspires and motivates them - and to be able to to show their gratitude. i met with Marketa last monday - such warmth and grace from a tiny frame, and her smile that lit the entire room - and had a chance to show my gratitude. (as i am writing this, a lovely butter yellow butterfly is fluttering across my window!)

Marketa, thank you for your warmth and hospitality. and thank you for your beautiful musical accompaniment to my designs.
