Caravelle Arcade was an open pavilion of shops in St. Croix and as a young girl I was window dresser to many!! Probably making a dollar an hour I sweat inside glass cases to drape and perfect my visual talents little did I know it was prepping me for the big time store Bonwit Teller!! This island this special island in the Caribbean Sea was home to my family for many years. I think you can tell through the years of my work I have never left my past behind me it lives on through my textiles!!! Homage to St. Croix where the gifts keep on giving. Ships in May!! 2015.
Oh my, it was just another day, dedicated to getting all the work done before bedtime, Know what I’m sayin??? And just getting on with it I was distracted by a video clip Carla sent me that showed the Duchess of England at a playdate in New Zealand, one of our favoritists places that seem to eat up all the fabric we send them. 🙂 In this clip I noticed a flash of fabric that looked like mine but couldn’t be sure because of all the movement and people in the way..Yes they were in the way of the perfect shot of the perfect dress…(the way I saw it) so what if it was the future King. (outtheway)
anywho….the still shots started rolling in and for sure it was our fabric and we were soooooo excited but the important thing for me was to find the creator of the dress because that’s who deserves all the praise!!! And find her we did!! Alana Garland please stand up!!! We are so grateful to you for this beauty shot..nice going !!! I hope you sell a zillion two!!! To all of New Zealanders we thank you for finding the future princess..no doubt in our minds..she is exquisite!
Lucky Girl … shipping currently. Can’t you just feel it in your hands! That luxurious, whimsical goodness.. Aren’t you just ready to hoard it and fold it sweetly on your little shelves… Stare at it for a few days… and then reluctantly cut into it making the most beautiful, lovely things?! It’s so close and it’s almost right there under your presser foot. Sit tight friends!
