Loving Lilly: Remembering Lilly Pulitzer

alilly2

I was reading about fashion icon Lilly Pulizer and her death this past week at age 81. Her colorful trend setting, Palm Beach attire has always caught my eye, my daughter and I even sported a matching set of colorful shifts when she was little. What I learned is that Lilly Pultizer (with the exception of being a socialite in Palm Beach) was just like so many of us, working to keep a piece of her identity while raising kids and being a wife. It was the late 1950s , her wealthy husband owned citrus groves and she decided to sell oranges and grapefruits from the backseat of the family station wagon to keep busy. Little did she know that this decision would shape the rest of her life. Read more

Designer Crush: Annabel Kwateng

aaa3

During Fashion Week I was introduced to hip fashion designer Annabel Kwateng and her brand, Ashanti Brazil. I love to draw upon influences from travel and fashion when designing interiors and was intrigued by Annabel’s style and bold use of color and pattern. Ashanti is the African tribe that designer Annabel Kwateng originates from, she would vacation in Brazil and was inspired by the natural beauty, the passionate culture, and the vibrant colors of the region. Ashanti Brazil is the infusion of African prints with Brazilian color palettes and influence resulting in designs that are fun, flirty and exotic.
