Things are just things, but what makes an heirloom? Something so precious that it causes you to slow down, take care, truly treasure, and love. Vintage laces and embroideries have their own special place in my heart…there is just something so utterly irresistible in the details of silk and jewels and the lost art of hand-made lingerie. Designing this collection allowed me to step into another time, and write a story of romance and beauty. Taking the time to ponder every last detail is truly a luxury, and creating something to be cherished, not wasted, not used up and discarded, not traded in for next season's model, but to be appreciated and treasured, rediscovered over and over again…that is an heirloom.
