Salon de Mardeu

Mardeu is a wonderful online shop that I can't say enough good things about. The site is so cute and the selection of items carried is so original. I finally have a chance to meet the people at Mardeu and the customers this past weekend at a show in Tokyo! Salon de Mardeu is on from Feb 20th to the 22nd!

Asobi at Omotessando Hills

This is a photo from a little show we participated in from Feb 17th to Feb 19th at Omotessando Hills called "Asobi". It was a show featuring a lot of up and coming brands. Omotessando Hills is a great place for just such a show. There was even a live painting performance on the opening evening. Great night.


At this year's Carnival in Venice, award-winning costume designer Tanja Shultz-Hess used the Parashell Frill as a headpiece for a jaw-dropping costume called "Umbrellina". A Kabocha Parasol was also used in the costume. It was wonderful to see the items in Venice with such a fantastical costume.
