Meeting Tziporah

Chosen as a model for Lanvin, favorite of Bill Cunningham, when Tziporah  came through Chicago, I was excited to meet
This amazing woman.

We ended up having much in common, we both worked for Barneys, she in the early days, for 6 months, on 17th street

I joined Barneys later, in Chicago, but opened stores and did windows at Madison ave, and stayed on a bit longer, 8 years.
in the end, we exchanged stories, and mutual admiration, we both admire the sisters behind Anndra Neen- Phoebe and Annette stephens, if you haven't heard of Tziporah Salamon, please do look her up.

Milena Silvano at the shop for fall and S/S 14

Hand woven silk ponchos by Milena Silvano, at AP Shop for a Thanksgiving weekend trunkshow, Saturday November 30th and Sunday December 1st,  along with new pieces from Takara, and Hacienda Montaecristo.

Just stunning, and also will have her handwoven belts.

Beautiful trim from past collections. Such a smart and beautiful idea, this photo by Cat Stevens for Swanfield Boutique.

Beautiful silk dress, with printed trim.

From Milena's lookbook, gorgeous.

Love these hand sewn color block scarves, images courtesy of Milena Silvano.
