Been busy guys! Glanz und Gloria. It means "Shine and Glory" and it's an entertainment TV show on Swiss National TV which airs every day. Journalist Arthur H. Honegger (photo above and below) just filmed an IdilVice portrait (it shows my sourcing work running around in New York City's garment district visiting all my favorite fabric and trim stores!!) to air...??? Ahem, not sure when, but I will let you know ahead of time so you won't miss it ;-)
Here's a little preview of my outfit...
I just put my Sex Pistols Tunic Dress over my distressed (yeah, they're ripped too!) jeans, wrapped my seersucker cotton scarf around my neck, threw on my soft pink cotton canvas sports coat and in case it would rain (which of course it didn't, all day) I carried my vintage Burberry's coat along.... Ah and yes, you can't see the boots but FYI, and if you care, they are the white Dr. Martens. What do you think? Does this style rock or does it not?

- 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.
