Pop quiz: Lemme know if you remember that I posted about the magical allure of this fabric in the past. Notice that someone else mentioned it, too (see below). In a district this large, with mountains of merchandise, how amazing is it that we could all fall in love with the same fabric? I hope we don't all bump into one another anywhere this fall... It could be embarrassing!
Shams, if don't know already, is such a delight of a sewing personality. On her blog right now, she has written a series of beautifully enthusiastic posts about her recent visit to New York City, and her exploration of the garment district. It is as thorough as it is passionate, and I strongly recommend reading it.
Note: She does give me a shout out in her entry #4, but that's not why I'm praising her blog here. I'm praising it because it is good!
I have been enjoying the posts Shams has been writing. You are right, she is so thorough and soooo enthusiastic! I was just in the GD this weekend and her post last night makes me want to go again, like, today!ReplyDelete
Yeah - such a wonderful boost of mojo!Delete
Thanks for the shout out, Mimi! I am not much of a floral girl, but I LOVE that fabric!!!!!!ReplyDelete
Ha! Yes, I think it kinda "defies" floral in the traditional sense, because it is such a unique scene/color/textural delight!Delete
I love that fabric too - last year I bought two yards at Elliot Berman, the day after your tour, Mimi. . . and I have at least one friend who is trying to trick me into giving it to him! It is very alluring fabric!ReplyDelete
Ah yes, and to touch it... heavenly!Delete
