Andrea Diodati’s Fall 2013 collection, titled The White Fall, is a collection made up of cotton candy separates and sugary sweet styling. In NYC’s lovely All Souls Chapel, the scene was set with sparkling lemonade, pink cotton candy via Handsome Dan’s and a live performance by songstress and pianist, Nibia. The styling of the models and overall vibe of the show were initially reminiscent of Meadham Kirchhoff S/S’12, but the show soon took on a life of its own. Read More

My boyfriend and I recently took a leap of faith, quit our jobs, and took a much needed vacation from New York City across the border to Canada! We chose three cities and took our first train ride to Montreal.

We even created this short travel film of our adventures in Montreal. Read More
