Always anticipating a new dawn, and hungry for the excitement of discovery I introduce myself and my upcoming collections. As a graduate with an interior design degree I can honestly say that nothing compares to the inherent love of all things Italian and "olde world." There is an undisputed timelessness about this region that I find myself enchanted by. Perhaps it is my ancestral ties that make its charm familiar. The stories of the beaded evening bags my Italian great-grandmother made, or the pictures of my great-grandfather (born on my birthday) standing proudly in front of his store.
This shoppe is a tribute, too. A tribute to the hundreds of women over the centuries who have followed a dream based on a need to create and sell their wares. That basic desire that has kept the cottage industry strong and empowered haute couture. I take my eccentric hat off and sweep it towards the strong current of the internet and the stronger passion of the creative heart. I commend us all!
