Yesterday I spent the day in New York. I was “on assignment” for an article I’m writing. More about that later. Suffice it to say it was a lot of fun and I got to fondle fabulous fabrics. I also visited BFAM Emmett while I was down there. If you get to Nolita, you have to go into His Store. His fall line is T.D.F. Here’s a picture:
I love the trench coat and the dress in the window. That’s Emmett on the phone outside.
While I was there, who walked in but Chloe Dao, Project Runway Season 2 winner! Chloe is exactly the way she came across on TV. Incredibly competent, fun, sweet – all superlatives. And the wonderful thing about Chloe is that when you chat with her, you feel like you have always known her. She’s got a great manner and personality. Like Emmett, she’s not only a top notch designer, but she’s a very savvy business owner as well. She’s going to continue to do really, really well, and I can’t say enough nice things about her.
I feel positively amazonian next to her! BTW, Chloe is selling a very successful line on QVC, in addition to her Dao Chloe Dao line (available at her boutique in Houston, TX).
Lots more to come later. And don’t forget! Mark your calendars for October 25 at 1:00. Emmett will be talking/selling at the ASDP meeting to be held at Berlin Old Town Hall in Berlin, MA (near Interstate 495 – directions to come). The cost for non ASDP members is $20, to benefit the New England Chapter of the ASDP programs. You’ll need to RSVP to moi to reserve a space. I’ll put up the details later.
Ciao for now, Chloe Dao!
