Last night, we participated in the “Living Better at Home” evening in Greenwich with a trunk show at one of our favorite stores, SM Home (see our Q & A post on April 28). Along with showcasing designs from our new Fall/Winter 2009 collection, Sandy also invited a number of wonderful artists whose works she represents. We were thrilled to meet Patricia van Essche (we’re huge fans of her blog!), Elizabeth Belliveau and Penny Putnam, all women who like us are living their “second lives”. While Patricia and Elizabeth left careers in fashion at Ralph Lauren and Calvin Klein to persue their own creative paths, Penny retired after 20 years as a graphic designer in the city to paint her masterpieces. We love how these women followed their passions to create beautiful works of art – the world is a much prettier place because they did!
Thank you, Sandy, for including us in this wonderful evening!
