tavi love

Yep, yep, yep... it's Tavi on the cover of L'Officiel! I remember that this was one of my favorite mags back when I was living in Switzerland, similar to Vogue Italia, it had it's own style and mind... it was mostly a great buy.

So now Lori Goldstein, the uber stylist whose latest accomplishment includes that she is fashion editor of W magazin, (well done 'mam) who did the styling on Tavi and who famously used some of my tops and dresses in the photo series 'THE KIDS' with photographer Steven Meisel for Vogue Italia in the year 2000 (gosh, how fast time passes) recently posted a link to this L'Officiel cover and it impressed and made me happy just as it must have Lori.

It's just such an honor to know that SHE picked my stuff for the KIDS shoot! In my opinion she just seemingly easily pulls a look together and makes it HER OWN... she's really a pro at it, hence the jobs she is getting from the worlds top magazines! Well, this new cover now gives me an opportunity to dig out the pics of the Vogue Italia shoot, 2000, photographed by - ahkheam - Steven Meisel, yet another incredible person to have shot my stuff by - Wew - How lucky am I?!

Today, when Fashion Bloggers are looked upon for influence and inspiration, cast in commercials and prominently seated in the front row of fashion shows, it comes as no surprise that a major magazine would put one of them on the cover!

But it is not just one of those bloggers, it is Tavi, who is the young writer of a blog called Style Rookie. J'ADORE. Thanks Tavi and Lori for makin this all look so good :) today and yesterday...

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.
