|Doo.Ri for Impulse at Macy's|
I caught up with Doo.Ri at the preview today and she was all too nice to answer a few questions about her Impulse Collection.
What was the inspiration for this Impulse collection at Macy's?
I was really inspired by my studio, I wanted to bring my home of New York and often times what I'm inspired by which is Art and bold graphic prints.
What do you think your usual customer will take away from this collection?
I really didn't want to there to be any distinction to what I bring to my own line versus what I bring to Macy's. My line it's really about elegant, jersey and all of those pieces I wanted to use for Macy's as well.
How did you feel about designing for a lower price point?
I'm all about the democratization of clothing. I love great design at an affordable price. If I can get my price point lower that would be great.
Would you collaborate with Macy's again?
I had so much fun! Everything is in the realm of possibility. They really made this such an easy and fun process for me.

I post this video of Jenna Lyons, Creative Director at J. Crew at Lucky FABB Conference because I recently watched this again and got completely inspired. Jenna grew up as an awkward child to being one of the most respected woman in fashion is truly admirable. The video I believe was taken close to two years ago but regardless she gives timeless advice to the audience about the drive and determination you need to work in fashion.

|Hi There by Karen Walker for Anthropologie|
I found out some great news today, Karen Walker is bringing her stripes and full skirt girlishness to Anthropologie in March! I've praised Karen Walker a few times on this blog, so this collaboration was a delightful surprise. This will be the designer first time having her label in a mass retailer. Expect to see Karen Walker in 164 Anthropologie stores this Spring.

"Have you seen most of the plus-size sections out there? It’s horrifying. Whoever’s designing for plus-size doesn’t get it. The entire garment needs to be reconceived. You can’t just take a size 8 and make it larger. In my travels, I’ve been an advocate for larger women. I’ve been talking to designers, but only a half-dozen make an effort. Most say, ‘I don’t want a woman who’s a size 10 or 11 wearing my clothes.’ Well, shame on you!"- Tim Gunn, Tim Gunn's New Day Job
