New Beginning

15 01 2011

I am so grateful for my friend Caitlin and her persistence in getting our website up and running again.  She is amazing and kind to be putting up with our website nightmare.  The online part is up and you can actually purchase pieces on our e-commerce.  The site is a work in progress.  It still needs some more love and tweaking.  Thank you also to Evangelina for shooting our product pics.  I can’t asked for a better team to be a part of this label and our lovely shop.  Caitlin also changed out “About Us” page.  The text is written my by PR Goddess and dear friend, Sarah.  Thank you so much to our little village.

Here is our new Kyoto tunic.

This is part of a sample text from our new version of “About Us.”

In April of 2010 Evangelina Owens and her husband, Miles Johnson, joined forces with IDOM. Owens, a trained photographer who spent her teenage years in South Africa, and Johnson, a painter and graphic designer, travel the globe hunting for treasures for IDOM. Together, Soondarotok, Owens and Johnson share in a commitment to support designers and artisans from around the globe. Their shared sensibility of mixing ultra modern design with global indigenous influences can be seen not just in the IDOM line, but in the treasures and objects they source from around the globe to feature at the IDOM boutique.   You can always find one of the business partners working behind the counter at their shop space in Portland along with their friends Caitlin, Velia and Lindsay.

Our new lovely Fuji dress is also in the shop now.  Please stop by and visit us this weekend.  Enjoy your weekend everyone.

Friday Inspiration

3 12 2010

I know I’m not supposed to have favourite amongst all the pieces that I designed.  I can’t help but adore this Canary Islands dress.  The piece forced me to be a better draper.  I played around with folding techniques on the hem and at the shoulder  seams.  It took me forever to get the drape and the pattern to work.  I wanted the piece to feel fluid and effortless.  Yet still captured the ruggedness and sculptural quality of Canary Islands.  I hope you will enjoy this dress as much as I do.

Many thanks to Zoe and Iris for making the dress comes alive.

The pieces are in the shop now.  You won’t want to go home without this dress.  It will make you feel beautiful.

Sahara

2 12 2010

I’m very touched by everyone thoughtful comments.  Thank you very much for your kindness.  Our family sends many thanks as well.  There is a funeral at the temple today.  It will be nice for grannie to be surrounded by her friends and family.  Thai funerals are actually fun and peaceful at the same time.  There will be massive amount of yummy food and lots of chats celebrating my auntie memories.  On a better note.  Caitlin’s father is doing amazingly well.  We are very delighted.  Hope that he continues to improved on a daily basis.  Thank you everyone!  I’m grateful to have such kind and wonderful readers.  Here is a new lovely dress named after Sahara desert.

Wishing E’s sister Cory good luck today.  Thank you Cory and Josh for always supporting our little shop.  Please swing by and visit new pieces.  We are busy steaming and pricing everything.  It is a treat to get a big box from Bangkok.  Enjoy your Thursday!





Chamonix

30 11 2010

We are so happy that the IDOM babies arrived safely from Bangkok after a week of being held in customs.  It is always an adventure in our world.  I’m so excited to see all the new pieces.  Here is Chamonix dress inspired by French Alps.  I was asked to create a dress for my cousin wedding in London.  I kept saying you are asking the wrong designer.  I really don’t do weddings.  After all you are talking to a girl who got married at a traffic court.  I didn’t have any dreams as a little girl of getting married or having a white giant dress.  Anyhow my cousin kept asking for help.  I gave in.  So here is my version of a wedding dress.  She actually loves it.  I’m relieved!

Thank you Ruth and Evangelina for modeling Chamonix dress.  You two are perfect IDOM girls.  Please visit us soon.  There are so many new beauties in the shop right now.  Wishing you a lovely week.
