IgNdY

Last night, our amazing friend designer Rosie Assoulin WON the CFDA Swarovski Award for Womenswear. SHE FREAKIN WON. I mean, I have no words. Ok here are a few: I couldn't be a more proud friend.

She has an inner warmth that beams out of her. I'm so happy for her and her husband Max, and her whole team, I can't even stand it!!!

PRINTING SEASON | Summer Is Coming.

If you see any … [Read more...]
