Metro Home Show

I just finished exhibiting at the Metro Home Show. It was tiring, but a great experience. I'm really lucky to have an amazing partner and great friends to help. Without Ed I definitely wouldn't get far. I'm also thankful to his parents Ed Sr. and Barbara for driving "Miss Daisy" around, and my friends Divya Thacker, Jodi Sinden, Karina Montoya Gomez, Jean Kim, Neil Benvenuti and George Mulamoottil for their help and for bringing me food to the show. Also thanks to Excell Decor for helping me with display materials.

Check out some pictures from the show:

Wheeling all our stuff to the booth


It's pretty crazy there on setup day.

The empty booth. The walls also included a printed sign and a carpet.

Working hard on setting up the booth.

Emilio Pucci

Pucci at work by David Lees/Corbis from New York Times


Hello, and Happy New Year!

Finally, I'm feeling a bit better after losing Rusty, but still miss him a lot. I feel, that now I'm ready to focus on my design work again.

I decided to post some designs from one of my all time design heroes: Emilio Pucci. He influenced my designs a lot, when I started creating prints a few years ago. I fell in love with his designs instantly. They were just so different. He would use pinks and yellows together with black and lime green.... I put a little collection together of his designs.

I also found an interesting New York Times article. You can read it by clicking on the link. For the latest collections, please visit his official website.
Enjoy!

In Memoriam

Rusty 1993-2007

This was a sad Christmas for us. We lost Rusty, our beloved friend and companion to a long and devastating illness: degenerative myelopathy. He was 14 years old. We miss him so much.
