For my most amazing friend Sue.
I think my friend Angie wants this piece as her wedding dress. It would be such an honour!
As I have mentioned before. I really really love doing the window. I think that there are something interesting about the 3d dimension of installing props and clothes. The mannequin girls are always having some sort of activity to do. I often enjoy coming up with a story for the window. I think that I drive my husband, Brad crazy. I usually ask him and our friends for all kind of props. The joy of being married to a mad window dresser!
It took me quite a while to find a white apron and a tea set. It was worth the search.
I was lucky that my friend Jeanne had the giant playing cards. I also love all the jewelry pieces from Demimonde by Rachael Donaldson and the Paris charm bracelet from Gallery by Maya.
I love the little bunny. It was handmade by a talented illustrator in Bangkok. The necklace is one of my favorite from Demimonde, Portland. The handmade fushia pocket book is from Jesse Champlin of Rush Accessories in Portland as well. The fushia blouse is from IRO. The two designer brothers are from Paris.
The printed silk dress is also from IRO. The black gold chain handbag is from my dear friend Jenny Yuen, New York.
It is so nice to be back in New York. To see all the familiar friendly faces. I do miss all my friends very much. I wish Portland and New York were much closer than this. Truly a treat to see everyone.
I woke up to this view every morning at my dearest friend Sue’s apartment. Such a priveleged to see the Chrysler building daily. Many thank yous to Sue for her kindness and for the wonderful visit.
I love New York during the holidays. It is so festive and so beautiful everywhere!
My amazing friend Sue and I were on our way to MOMA.
Our old neighborhood Williamsburg, Brooklyn. I can’t believe of how many new shops, restaurants, and condos are everywhere. Our favorite old Polish markets, cafes, and video rental shops have all gone away within a year. Even the laundry place has turned into a trendy restaurant. So sad!
Brad and my old apartment on Bedford Avenue. It is the second floor above a great Polish restaurant and a little market. I was thankful that both of the places are still there.
My lovely friend Elisha. I was making her walk around with me in my old neighborhood. We had a nice time back in Brooklyn.
Two of our sweetest friends Mike and Amy in Red Hook just had a brand new baby boy. Meet the adorable Harry!
Paridee my social butterfly friend. We loved this little gallery in lower east side.
Interesting building in Soho.
This collection is dedicated to the most influential women in my life.
Here is to my grannie, my mum and all my lovely amazing girlfriends. Cheers to them!

We are so delighted and so excited at the result of this creepy, but beautiful photo shoot for our spring 09 collection. Our talented photographer Elizabeth Russell-Baumgartner shot exquisite images for this collection. We are amazingly lucky to have Marc Fischer styled our models and our set again. Lindsey Avenetti was our fabulous hair and make up artist. Our three beautiful models were Kerstin, Lia, and Sarah. We are now in the process of designing our first IDOM lookbook by the beautiful and the talented graphic designer, Nicole Fischer. I can’t tell you enough times of how fun this whole process was… Everyone on our team got along so well. It was truly such a joyous experience collaborating with each and everyone of you. Thank you very much for your love and your passion for this project.
