Elizabeth and I were in LA this week at a textile trade show. We were looking for fabrics for fall 08 (kinda crazy, huh?) and found some amazing stuff! We also went to a jobber, someone who has fabric on hand, rather than ordering it from a mill. It was this big 2 story warehouse packed full of bolts of fabrics.

We had a good time wondering around in the fashion district, mainly cause it was right next to the flower district. It smelled so lovely, and there were some crazy floral arrangements too, check this one out:

As well, here is a travel tip for all of you. Read the fine print when booking rooms. We stayed at the Standard hotel downtown LA, which, if I would have read carefully, has glass showers. Here is a picture of Elizabeth, in the bathroom, which you can see isn't very private. Whoopies.

Anyway, we're hope happy to be home. Elizabeth is designing the fall 08 line and I am, well, doing paperwork, but that can be fun too . . .

mashed potatoes and turkey stuffing

with all the running around over the past two weeks, organizing the nokomis party and fashion show, it's time for a break. thanksgiving weekend usually leads to eating too much and drinking just enough to have an entertaining family gathering. so, the holiday came in time for us both at the store and the studio.

leaves are falling, and the wind is blowing. fall is coming to an end; with winter creeping its way back into the city. sweaters are making their way out of the back of the closet and into our daily attire. this year we picked up a line of beautiful loom knit sweaters from montréal; majolie. perfect for the cold that takes over edmonton.
mel is wearing the men's sweater, boris (top) and one of the women's knits, blanche (bottom).
