The story of inspiration gathered from the warm, sweet air of the South...and the sophisticated, vibrant energy of New York City.
A story told in textures: soft velvet, delicate lace, summery gingham, and peppy ribbon. Where texture meets pattern and style in an unexpected dance.
Like the sounds of a New Orleans jazz band floating through downtown Manhattan. The story of pieces that let you tell your story.
From completing an outfit to making your wedding day sparkle.
