Overall the trip was very inspiring, and I came home with my mind full of new ideas! I spent a lot of time (and a little too much money!) in the garment district. I'm currently finishing up my Spring/Summer 2011 collection right now so I purchased some really beautiful cotton/silk blends and silks from my favorite mill-end fabric supplier. I'm really hoping to step my next collection up a notch....still using a lot of vintage/recycled stuff and throwing in fancy mill-end fabrics. I'll be sure to post a sneak peak very soon!
My friend Jenny and I walked over the Williamsburg Bridge to hang out in Chinatown and then the Lower East Side. I ate an entire cup of banana pudding from Sugar Sweet Sunshine.
