the personal collection of Ratti fabric's founder.

From my earliest memories, my father gave me and my sister only three colors to 
work with: red, yellow and blue. He told us we could create all the colors we wanted 
from these three. He stood his ground till about my early teens. It was challenging, 
but from that I developed an amazing sense and obsession for color. It is also my 
most successful form of therapy. Just stand me in front of a wall full of color. Instant 
happiness.

I loved everything about this video.  Perfection!  The color, costumes, hair... oh and I 
like the song too!

These may be some of my favorite ads. Irving Penn for Clinique from the 80's 
or 90's? I can't remember...

While shopping vintage with my favorite dealer Mary Catalina, I came upon this 
Wendy Gell hair clip from the 80's, made of flea market salvages. I loved it but left it behind.

While I was Germany, Shirley made a summer vacation stop in Paris and went to the 
Musée Galliera, to see the Balenciaga exhibit at Les Docks. I love this necklace... it's 
is so big and colorful.  We don't know the year? Shirley was too excited to get next 
door to see the COMME des GARÇONS to note.

Caitlin McConnell (she works at Araks), brought in a few pics of her great 
grandmother, Seconda. Also, the grandmother of Cheryl Dunn a friend and former 
Araks look book contributer .  I nearly fell over... To me, it's not only the style but 
the demeanor is spot on those McConnell/Dunn girls.

I love collaborations.. There is something about bringing creative people together. It's an 
opportunity to get something better then you could do on your own. I wanted an experience 
that was more free and fun than a traditional photo shoot. Shooting the book this way 
was a chance to have other people share their vision and creativity. I make a wish list 
every season.. I start with friends, or friends of friends, then add people I don't know, 
but who I feel are in some way connected with the brand.
