My dear friend Sarah sent me the link that our little IDOM shop was mentioned as one of the best places to shop in Portland.  So sad that we couldn’t save the shop.  But, very honoured and thrilled to be loved by Lucky Magazine.  Also Portland is number 7 out of 25 cities as a great place to do some shopping.

Here is what Lucky has to say:

#7: Portland

Why We Love It: For the heritage, Americana vibe that pervades its style (think Pendleton blankets, plaids and rain jackets).

Places to Try: Fat Fancy (for plus size offerings that don’t compromise style); The English Dept (for cocktail dresses); Idom Designs (for offerings from a former designer for Peter Som and Donna Karan).

Check out the link via Lucky here.

The studio is almost coming together.  Sorry it is taking me a while to find some courage to let go of the shop and to recovered from my broken heart.  Will keep you posted on my new lovely space.

Thanks you Sarah for cheering me up and thank you Lucky Magazine for recognising of how special the little shop was.

Thank you Marjorie and The Mercury!

I’m so touched by Marjorie’s kindness through out the year.  She has been such a supporter of our label.  Also a strong voice in our fashion community here in Portland.  I wish that there are more fashion writers like her.  We are lucky to have her in Portland.  Thank you so much for the article of Dress/Undress fashion show benefit for Planned Parenthood in The Mercury this week.  Many thanks also for her blog post of our A/W 11 collection.  Take a look.

Please read Marjorie’s Sold Out column here.

Thanks very much again Marjorie!  Hope you lovelies could join us for the show on next Wednesday the 31st.  You could get your tickets here.  Have a lovely Thursday everyone.

Friday Inspiration

10 12 2010

Thinking of my grannie on her birthday.  She was the one who took care of me when I was little.  Grannie was an orphan by the time she turned four.  Couple of her sisters and relatives raised her the best way that they could.  Her life was filled with struggle, poverty, and lost.  But, somehow she found the joy of learning to be an outlet in her life.  She was also a single mother raising two children by herself in Thailand.  Grannie was an amazing math teacher, a writer, a musician, and a divine cook.  A feminist in her own right.  I spend most of my childhood in her outdoor kitchen learning how to cook.  She taught me how to read and understand simple math concept by the time I was two.  She was such a chic woman as well.  Always sketching her own garments for our neighbor tailor to make her beautiful dresses.  We lost her six years ago.  Somehow it feels as if she is still with us everyday.  Happy birthday grannie.  You will always be my inspiration.

Also sending our dear friend Angie birthday wishes to her in Kolding, Denmark.  Happy birthday A!

Many thanks to Marjorie via Portland Mercury for her post of IDOM A/W 10 new pieces.
