Bring It On, 2012!!

Happy New Year! I'm excited to report that today marks the second year anniversary of Taffetadarlings!  How time flies.  I was nearly forced at gunpoint encouraged to start a blog by the fabulously talented journalist-turned-jewelry designer, Wendy Brandes, who convinced me that it would be a good way to interact with and educate people about the world of fashion.  I mean, the REAL world of fashion and what it's like to be a designer trying to make it in the cut-throat industry.

So, I decided to do it, but I didn't want to be just another fashion blogger talking about how much they love Marc Jacobs and Proenza Schouler or posting outfit pictures every day.  Of course, outfit posts are great once in a while, but I wanted to take people on a journey (God, I hate that word, it's so overused) and allow them to "tag along" as I worked on my collections, raised funds and showed at NY Fashion Week.

I hope you've all enjoyed it so far because there's more to come.  And I promise I'll keep mixing things up by continuing to write about music, art and anything interesting to me at any given moment!


  1. thank god that wendy forced you at gunpoint...err...encouraged you to start...happy blogaversary! looking forward to future collections! xoxo

  2. I love it when you post images like these of your own designs. I get to see so much more of your vision with the stills than I could ever dream of, because I can't make it to your shows. I love the styling and the composition.

    I can't wait to see more!

  3. Found your blog through Wendy Brandes', and love it! I can't believe I never stumbled upon your work before. I'm a fashion designer as well working on my first collection and I'm crowdfunding it. Parallels right there! Anyway, good luck with your Fall2012 campaign, I'll be keeping up with your blog, and I can't wait to see what you do in 2012!
