For Hire

just saw jimi on channel 13

I am checking in, despite no time to spare. I've been busy filling orders - I thought our economy was slugging!! Not for me - knock on wood - I am busy as ever filling orders for my various clients from all over the world... great!!

I wanted to fill everyone in on that Marc Jacobs has paid the scarf designer who's scarf design he stole...

I also had a dream where me and Marc were chilling and actually got along real well... I can't remember the details or at least I do not want to reveal... it's all good though..we all got to make a must be hate love.

I just saw a show on Jimi Hendrix live in Monterey.... you all know: he is one of my absolute biggest heroes!!! I L.O.V.E. him!

And watching him playing guitar on the back of his head (must have sounded reeeeaaall good) and working those strings with his teeth... grinding his hips at the amplifier(!!), finally burning the instrument with lighter fluid... and looking at the shocked faces in the audience (cannot imagine that today - no one would really give a sh**) but then at that specific time, it just made it clear to me that, yes, my heroes are real and they do matter a lot!

I L.O.V.E. Jimi! He is the epitome of revolution and he is sadly gone too soon! I am not prouder of any other item more than my jimi hoodie and dress. They soooo rock! And I'll wear them forever.

I love to be able t to pay tribute to someone like this and will NOT stop. I know you all out there love it too and please don't make me feel guilty for making a bit of money with this but I work hard for it and I think it is necessary - quiet frankly I can't believe that I am the only one doing it!!!! What is wrong with all the people??? Anyway, I believe we make history.

Here a couple of new images:

Blondie skirt and Elvis (not necessarily my hero) scarf/wrap.

Betty Boop Fairy tube dress.

Kiss skirt and Slash (Guns 'N' Roses) skirt.

Jazz multi hoodie. Billie Holiday, Miles Davis, Dizzy Gillespie,
Charlie Parker, Sarah Vaughan, etc., etc.

MY ONLINE SHOP IS IN THE WORKS!!! Please don't quit on me and hang in there, it will open soon and all of the pieces will be available for the best price anywhere, so sit tight, right here you peops. You will be rewarded.

Just like the rare Swiss mountain flower Edelweiss - a symbol of prestige and distinction - the clothing brand IDILVICE (pronouced "Edel-vice") was born in the mountains of Switzerland and since then it's flourishing on the concrete of Manhattan and recently even in the rolling hills of the San Francisco Bay Area. However as the spelling indicates, the label is not meant to be associated with too much folkloric alpine tradition, but rather and probably in the contrary, with unconventionality. The IDILVICE label was founded in 1995 by Swiss Native fashion designer Idil from the city of Saint Gallen, Switzerland, who's foundation dates back to the 7th Century and which became famous for their quality textile products, especially embroidery textiles, which are still popular with Parisian Haute Couture designers today. In search for something less traditional, Master Graphic Designer Idil ventured out to New York City where she fell in love with American Pop Culture.
