New Dresses

21 10 2011

We are excited to receive our new A/W 11 holiday dresses.

We also love the tuxedo blazer.  It is so wonderful to pair it with any ensemble.  Our friend Salwa is a proud owner of the blazer.  I may keep one for myself too.  It looks so great with this new orange holiday dress.

I’m all about beautiful lining.  The silk chiffon dress is lined with lovely flower print.

Delightful butterfly printed dress for your party.

Hope to see you lovelies this weekend.  Enjoy your Friday everyone.





New Beauties

20 10 2011

Take a look at the new treasures that just arrived in our shop.

We love the new trench coat.  Of course I had to put in our orange colour Hong Kong seam binding.  It is a dreamy trench.

Our velvet coat is also divine and lovely.  Paired with IDOM new scarves and new jeans.

Lots more wonderful silk knit beautifully draped dresses.

Many thanks to our lovely Velia Salinas for all the wonderful pics.  Thank you, V!  You are the best.

One of a Kind

26 09 2011

Some of the new lovelies for A/W11 are one of a kind pieces.  They are either too time consuming and too costly to reproduce in a full size run. I always want to put everything into production.  But, it usually takes my mother to remind me to figure out the math first.  She definitely keeps me grounded and most often than not ask me to look at business reality.  So it takes me sitting down and figuring out all the time and effort that I spend on the first piece.  Then knowing our customers base that most of them live away outside of Portland.  Should I really do the whole size run?  It is a brutal truth that most of the beauties won’t be bought by anyone here except few of our royal customers.  Which sometime we ask them “could we please clone 10 of you.?”  Also one of a kind pieces allow me to experiment with construction technique and design creativity.  Plus they keep me sane as a designer to do something more unconventional.  Knowing fully well that they may not be pick up by someone.  This is my logic behind one of a kind beauty.

I’m at the shop all day today.  Hope to see you soon.  Swing by and try on one of a kind dresses.  They will make you happy on this gray rainy day.  Enjoy your Monday everyone.





On Their Way

19 09 2011

The new coats and the Autumn new beauties are on their way.

We will keep you posted when they are here.  In the mean time please stop by and visit us soon.  Our lovely Velia is in the shop today.  She would love to help you find a delightful piece for this cooler temperature.  Enjoy your Monday everyone.





The Goddesses

7 09 2011

Sarah Keefe from Planned Parenthood sent us two beautiful pics from the show.  As she puts it so well the IDOM girls are the Goddesses.  We are lucky to have so many beauties on the stage.  We love working with Sarah Schroeder and Iris Dyrhaug.  They were in several of our lookbooks.  It was such a fun reunion to visit with the girls again.  Of course we were thrilled to have our business partner/photographer/, Evangelina Owens to represent us on the stage.  It is truly a family affair.  Evangelina’s sister in law Cory Owens was also very kind to accept our invite to model one of the dresses.  She and her husband Josh are one of the biggest supporters of the label.  If you were at the show you might have seen Josh, Miles (Evangelina’s husband), and Caitlin selling pieces by our IDOM rack at the show.  It is such a labour of love from everyone involved with this little label that could.  Thanks very much for believing in this dream as much as I do.

New Beauties from A/W 11

2 09 2011

We just received a new parcel from Bangkok.  Please swing by and try on the new dresses.  They are wonderful.

This white dress has lovely layers of draping.  It took me quite a while to get all the layers to make sense.  It was really fun designing this piece.

We love this skirt.  It is quite versatile for dressing it up or down.  Ava looks lovely in the ensemble.

I adore this silhouette.  Plus the exaggerated buttons are charming.

Our beautiful IDOM girl and business partner, Evangelina wearing the dress for our fashion show benefit for Planned Parenthood past Wednesday night.  Thanks E for being such a trooper.  Please visit us over this holiday weekend.  Lots of new pieces in the shop now.  Enjoy your Friday everyone.
