This jacket was a long time coming. It was inspired by a Versace piece I had seen while window-shopping in NYC and then saw again in a magazine. What I was drawn to the most was the steely cut and the bold lines of the fabric. I tried to recreate it in my Sofia.
I sent the design off to Knit (formerly Yarn Forward), a British magazine, last March along with a few other sketches. They very kindly decided they were going to take four of the six pieces I submitted for consecutive issues. (They’re a monthly.) Beginning with issue 42 and continuing through issue 45, I will have one of my designs in the magazine. Three of the pieces are now done, but this one, Sofia, made the cover. I’m thrilled. I only wish the model they chose was a little tinier, as I feel the fit is different than what was on my Manny.
Next month, they are running a “designer inspiration” piece on me and I am to be featured. Happy!!!
