The Taylor & Landon brand uses modern prints in bright-bold colors. The designer, Emily Hopkins, is a self-taught seamstress that started her career sewing while in college earning a Chemistry degree at the University of Texas. Her use of fabric manipulation, with techniques such as smocking and pleated tucks, sets her apart from other designers. The Taylor & Landon brand targets women of all ages that are looking for a functional addition to their wardrobe, but who also want to stand apart from the crowd with a pop of color.

This line of clothing is a semblance of a feeling, a feeling of pride, the followings of heritage, and a sense of journey. The auras evoked by beings, their wisdom, and the traces left behind

Not a Cookie Cutter Garments for younger professional women for work or casual wear, that are unique and classy, wearable for most of the year. I like to use darts in a way that will accentuate a woman’s body as well as design lines and color blocking to make the garments more visually interesting and better fitting than a comparable garment.

Conte de Fées, fairy tale in French, is a collection that takes its name and inspiration from the classic Brothers Grimm fairy tales. The stories of princesses, magical forests and true love are reflected in the delicate chiffons and the floral lace. It features delicate textures with a mix of flat lace and a flower-like detail.

The DALBY collection is inspired by Kodachrome film from the early 60′s. The vibrant hues and soft textural elements pay homage to the revolving snapshot of the slide projector, the soft focus and radiant light echoed in the plush cashmere wool blends and sumptuous fur collar. The coats feature oversized patterns, draped, cape-like silhouettes and rounded, raglan shoulders that suggest both vintage glamor and modern elegance. The DALBY customer is a creative professional in her mid-thirties who makes around $80,000 a year.

Jewelry designer Kimberly Baker has moved her shop a few times, from Fremont to Green Lake, and has now landed (or moored, as the case may be) in Phinney Ridge. Her new shop, Ship Song (hence the moored reference) is taking full advantage of the prime corner shop recently vacated by Hip Zephyr (who has decamped to Mercer Island), maximizing the small footprint into a sunny accessories boutique.

If you gaze out over Elliott Bay this weekend you might catch a glimpse of the Hugo Boss yacht, a carbon fiber, 60 mono-hull racing boat with around 600 square meters of sail (that’s the size of a soccer field) helmed by British skipper Alex Thomson, who races her all over the globe.
