Dress Designer Abraham recently took a trip around the world, 10 stops in all, in search of inspiration. His trip took him on a multi-city tour from Philly to New York (Fashion’s Night Out pit-stop!) to LA to Finland to Denmark to Sweden to London to New York and back to Philly, where an exhausted but inspired Abraham, got to work on capturing all the amazing designs he saw. We wanted to share a few pics of the Nordic inspirations he found along the way and of course, we couldn’t NOT share pics of some of the fun & good eats he had too! Here’s Abe in his own words about his world tour…
I started my trip in NYC for Fashion’s Night Out where the streets of New York became runway shows. Everyone was out to see and be seen and absolutely dressed-to-impress. It’s always great night to be inspired by all the Fashionistas of the city. (Sadly, I couldn’t party too much since I had to catch an early plane with my coworkers to LA) Once in LA, we took a trip to the monthly market at the Rose Bowl (d)- a must-stop for vintage shopping. (check out those vintage Lillys (a) we found!). After three short days there, I jumped back onto a plane making a quick stop in Finland (even the airport (b) itself was beautiful) before heading to Denmark. Copenhagen is a city very much like LA ( the LA of Scandinavia) and the vintage shopping, bike rides, boat tours and galleries (e) really got my creative juices flowing. Before I knew it I was back on a plane to spend three days in Stockholm. The Swedes really know what classic dressing is all about. (examples- check out those window shots! (c)) I could not get over the beauty of the city and the people. Ten days later I was back at the Pink Palace of Philly (not to be mistaken for the Pink Palace of Copenhagen (f)) armed with so many ideas for our Fall ’12 and Resort ’12 collections. I can’t wait to see all the new dresses in stores and on our customers!
