so, since i recently got a scanner, i decided to go pull some files from the basement. one of them was my trip i took to france in may of 2004. that’s where i saw the schiaparelli exhibit.

i designed and made a wardrobe to take with me that spring. below are the illustrations, front and back, of that wardrobe.

i didn’t make all of them, but i still wear some that i did make.

i did sketches when i was in the museum of elsa’s designs that i had not seen in any of the books i had read about her.

i also picked up some postcards. why i haven’t framed some of these, i do not know.

my program and souvenir.
