"Most Fashionable Gifts"

I usually don't head out to shop the Friday after Thanksgiving for the following reasons:

1) I live in Italy where Thanksgiving doesn't exsist, therefore neither does "Black Friday"


2) I prefer to shop in peace without the crowds

While I am crazy enough to camp out for things I like {ie. Saturday Night Live tickets and even at one time Nsync, which is quite embarrasing to admit seeing that I was a freshman in college at the time} I probably would not sleep outside the mall after eating Thanksgiving dinner in order to save a buck. I really enjoy making and giving presents, and I like the charm of a leisure stroll through the city to find the perfect treasure for a friend.

Anyway, I saw this commercial this morning for H&M, and I wanted to share it. It's fashionable, surreal and a true gift for the eyes!

Sketchbook Sketches

I wanted to share some of my sketches from the Suite Spring/Summer 2009 Collection. Brainstorming and sketching are some of my favorite parts of the design process. My "girls" tend to resemble a Bridget Bardot character, with teased hair and thick black eyeliner.
