There are the ones hat have that special something. One either has it or they don't. Carey Mulligan is one of those who have it. Having been awarded the Shooting Star Award at the Berlinale 2009, there is no doubt that you will hear more about and see this 24 year old Londoner actress - sooner or later - in an upcoming movie or two.
I mentioned before that every season there is someone that inspires my collections. Someone I'd see in the garments I am working on, besides my own self of course. So the minute I spotted this face I was smitten: Here is someone who is super cute, with a not so perfect smile, a chameleon (well, make up helps), seemingly sensitive and innocently sexy - perfect!
Colleagues and my Swiss country man photographer Raymond Meier have already snatched her up - Check out the story! I personally like Mr. Jacobs take here:
She is also cute "au naturel"!

- New York, NY, United States
- 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.
