Hello my lovelies!
I wanted to write to you because today is my birthday! Well, not my birthday exactly. It’s the 1 year anniversary of the official opening of my design house!
Looking back over the past year I am delighted by the progress we have made and humbled by the overwhelming support we have received from our friends along the way. Just a few short months ago we were able to move from our tiny, temporary space into our open and sunny permanent studio in the heart of the NYC garment center. It really made it feel official to have our own address!
In 12 months my team and I were able to produce a runway show at the Park Avenue Armory, present 2 collections, launch the line at Neiman Marcus and travel the country meeting with brides at the most wonderful couture salons in the country. Mon dieu, the year flew by!
We are celebrating today with an Anniver-soirée and indulging in cake and champagne all afternoon. In addition to toasting our first successful year, we are also toasting to all of you, my darlings. The letters, the tweets, and the outpouring of love I receive from all of you are my true inspiration. I could not have done this without you.
