FRIDAY, OCTOBER 16th, 2009 a proton cami? a trapezoid skirt? meet abigail glaum-lathbury!
Our hearts actually fluttered when we first encountered this amazing, quirky, original designer. The Chicago-based Abigail Glaum-Lathbury's inventive, inspired designs are painstakingly tailored yet romantic, vintage-twinged yet edgy. She's conceptual - inspired by insects, by Einstein, by geometry. Yet she's passionate about function, constructing her pieces on real women with great attention to fit and movement. No rarefied dressmaker-form creations here.
Our first pieces will arrive Monday, and we can't wait to get your reaction. It's really the most exciting collection we've seen in a long time. OH, and - we're throwing a party: a Trunk Show of Abigail's Winter/Holiday Collection and a preview of Spring, November 20th & 21st, in our Dupont Shop. Stop in for champagne, nibbles and amazing designs.
