simply luscious

Vintage yukata fabric like this doesn’t become available very often. These bolts are some of the most gorgeous cottons I’ve imported—in color and design.

noren jacket

Diane Roubal made this jacket for me with three vintage yukata cottons. The “Noren Jacket,” designed by Ruth Vincent for Lorraine Torrence, has a little Japanese-style curtain at the back. I look forward to wearing it to some Okan Arts trunk shows in the coming year—to show shoppers another use for the indigo and white fabrics besides quilting.
