Greetings ladies and gents. Happy new year! So far I am loving 2013. As the clock struck midnight I found myself onstage at the Shanghai Mermaid party alongside a smokin' jazz band and a few beautiful friends throwing glitter on the crowd. Yes! Good omen!!! Cheers to another fabulous year of sparkling the world... :)One of the creative projects I am most excited about launching this year is my Vintage Glamour Accessories line. Vintage Glamour is a limited edition collection of hair accessories made with elegant feathers, unique appliques, rhinestone costume jewelry, and embellished with scintilating Swarovski crystals. The first five designs have already gotten such a great response that I unexpectedly started taking pre-orders. I am very much looking forward to developing this collection in 2013.
While all this is going on, I am still working diligently on finalizing my book Parades, Parties, and Protests. The majority of the content is laid out in In Design, print and distribution is set, and now I am doing final tweaking on the photos and text. So close!!!! For the past few weeks, most days I have been coming home after working at Bergdorf, taking a nap, and then working on the book until the wee hours of the morning. I am very much looking forward to the completion of this 12 year body of work. In this new year, I am ready to move forward with my life and have more space to fulfill many creative passions ;)
