it’s so cool to see your designs in a magazine or an editorial. that will never get old. but it’s thrilling when you see your designs on super model carolyn murphy in porter magazine (see the entire ‘riding the wave’ story here). carolyn is one of my all time favorite models- she exudes timeless american beauty and has become an icon in the industry. 

the editorial story is about summer stripes, styled by catherine newell- hanspn and photographed by filmmaker terence connors. they feature our mds stripes blue and white striped lucy short (here is our newest version here) . one of our first designs named after c.z. guest. 

always a thrill to see stripes, especially when they are mds stripes on carolyn murphy.
