October may be our favorite month of 2015. We started with a visit from Jocy from PynkChocolateBreak who has an AMAZING DIY video blog where she creates garments from local fabrics and materials that are easy enough for you to make at home!We’ll be working very closely with her in the first few weeks of November on some collaborations so stay tuned!
On Pugtober 15th (it was coincidentally also National Pug Day), we kicked off the Halloween season with our Halloween Trimtacular where we introduced our new Decorative Trimmings line to our local friends and clients! We trimmed our showroom with all sorts of laces and ribbons produced in our factory north of Mexico City. We had masks that featured our new trim line to costume our guests (Big Dave, our Threadman/bartender underwent two hours of makeup producing a truly “horrific” look. We also had a bracelet making table where you could choose your own trim! The beverages and cookies were orange and purple and there were more pumpkins than one could count! We can’t wait until next year!
The following week, we attended FGI’s Night of Stars Gala cocktail party where we got to rub shoulders with the fashion industry – and Hollywood’s – biggest stars! We schmoozed with the beautiful Garance Dore, blogger and author of the new book “Love x Style x Life”, who joined us at our table for some “Fashionista Gazing”. We caught sight of the designers of Haus Alkire, Katie Holmes, Meryl Streep and Jessica Biel and Justin Timberlake, while enjoying the musical stylings of the very talented Brian Newman on trumpet. It was an extremely beautiful and lavish evening and we are so grateful to have been a part of it. A big thank you to President Hayes!
We’re very excited for everything November has in store for us!
