Awhile back, we inadvertently got the Sundance channel with our DVR/HD/Digital cable package. I don't know why it eventually went away but seriously, we order everything else, why can't you just include it back in? Anyway... I was obsessed with watching all these documentaries on Fashion houses (like Marc Jacobs & Louis Vuitton) and saw the documentary "Seamless" that followed ten upcoming fashion designers all vying for the CFDA/Vogue Fund that would finance their lines. It was an interesting documentary, I especially loved watching Doo Ri Chung work out of her parent's basement and having them help her sew her designs. It just gave such a good perspective of the state of a struggling designer.
That same year they filmed the documentary was when Derek Lam won the CFDA Emerging Talent Award. I have always loved his collections but never knew that was his big start. His designs are not ground breaking, but I just love the simplistic nature and the craftmanship of the details. Currently, I am in love with his latest Resort collection. He's got a perfect outfit for all occasions.
And this... well, this is on my current MUST HAVES for the fall. If only I had $2,290. Okay, I'll just put it on my wishlist.
