This week’s spotlight Spring print is absolutely delicious! We asked Paige, who designed the print, exactly what (besides the obvious!) inspired her. She had a great story to tell so we thought we’d let her tell you herself!…
“Doing all of the impressionist inspired prints for Spring 11 took me back to my time spent studying abroad in France. One of the most memorable experiences there was having lunch at Laduree in Paris on the Champs Elysees. I remember looking at the rows and rows of confections, each treat a work of art. The pistachio and strawberry macaroons were my favorite! Drawing the cakes took me right back to that day, I had cravings for sweets the entire time I was working on it! I also got to visit the Prelle Showroom while I was in Paris, an amazing Textile house that made fabrics for Marie Antoinette. When I returned home from France I was a little obsessed with the Marie Antoinette Movie, I think it helped with the culture shock. The movie used Prelle fabrics and confections from Laduree. I recommend putting on the “Let Them Eat Cake” dress and getting inspired by Marie Antoinette’s decadent fabulousness!”
Besides making all of us girls feel decadently fabulous, we also think the Bluey Dress in “Let Them Eat Cake,” is the quintessential first birthday dress for any toddling cutie-pie!
(this print was soooo yummy that it sold out on-line so you’ll have to head in-stores to pick up this sweet treat!)
