August 10th, 2011 Store Visit in L.A.

Just got back from a whirlwind tour of our stores in L.A. and San Francisco. We presented the Fall Collection and had a little party. Here are some photos of the L.A. visit.

1) Pascale Cohen with a very chic customer.

2) Here I'm having a conversation with Arianne Phillips. She is one of my favorite stylists. She is incredibly down to earth and supernaturally creative. From styling the movie "Hedwig and the Angry Inch" to "Walk the Line" (for which she was nominated for an Academy Award) to working with Madonna for 10 years. She just styled Madonna's new movie "W.E.".

3) The lovely Elizabeth Matthews from the Costume Council at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art.

4) Some young fans. Check out how styled the guy on the left is. It made me smile and reminded me of me as a kid.

5) A very chic couple.


August 11th, 2011 Store Visit in San Francisco

I went to San Francisco to continue the presentation. We decided to create a video that described the process of design, a short bio, and showed the editorial press collection for Fall 2011.

August 12th, 2011 Anna Paquin

We love Anna Paquin, from her performance in "The Piano" with Harvey Keitel and Holly Hunter, to her acceptance speech at The Oscars, to now turning it out on True Blood. She was the youngest person to win an Academy Award and wore this amazing El fin/Pixie out-fit which you know she picked out herself. Here she is (below) wearing one of our Miss H necklaces.


August 16th, 2011 OMG- Joan Rivers!!

On Sunday I was at the NY Gift Show and I received a text that Joan Rivers was in my booth and dying to meet me. I rushed back there to see her and she was swarming around the booth pulling jewelry. She apparently is a BIG FAN!! She was super sweet and slightly demure which I know is surprising to think of Joan being demure but there it is.

For everyone who hasn't seen her movie should! It's incredibly funny but has a slightly depressing undertone, partly due to her never ending driven nature to be in the public eye and get work. Unfortunately, Joan Rivers has never been given the credit for paving the way for tons of women comedians; since her debut on the Johnny Carson Show. She fought hard to create a new model and succeeded. I don't think she has any regrets.
