European Preview

My tour of the fashion capitals is always a way for me to get inspiration for the line and to recharge the creative battery! The following are highlights from my trip…from packing my carry-on bag (for ten days I carry the weekender!) to suggestions of where to eat, stay and most importantly shop! Europe is still a boutique culture, so window shopping is a sport and each of the fashion capitals offers its own version of what is new as well as what are the mainstays of fashionable women in the street!

The Pack

I like a “uniform” when I travel (as well as in my everyday world). I stick with Black and Navy (yes I mix the dynamic duo) and take only items that fit well, offer comfort and flexibility from day to night! Layering is key…light weight & versatile! Here are some of my picks (I take multiples of my favorites):
