night before vegas....

my flight for vegas leaves in 30. i am headed to the international textile show.

what's on my mind:
laroque just had its 3rd birthday... time has flown by.
what will i show for charleston fashion week spring 2011?
spring 2011 line to wholesale?
{no worries the studio on devine st will still be open ...}
its time for a plan. {not my nature at all}

late last night, in hopes of some direction and inspiration marquis and i went to the shop. im sure you didn't miss the line about wholesaling for spring 2011. i have been talking with a rep in atlanta for a year about the possibilities of a wholesale line. i have felt this universal pull to do something more with laroque. don't get the wrong impression i am perfectly happy on devine st. i love the everyday interaction with customers but sometimes feel like what i love the most, fabric and design are lost in the everyday routine.

last night i tried on every garment in the shop. what do i truly love? what do my clients love? what fabric fits my vision? what says "laroque"? what feels right for spring? where have we been ... and were are we headed?
after hours in the studio, marquis painted my nails "waking up in vegas" by debrah lippmann. {seemed fitting } lady gaga is wearing the same shade on this months cover of vanity fair. if it inspires her, maybe it will inspire me. grey and coral for spring 2011? we will see....
