Q: What's the plan for your spring 2010 collection?

A: The inspiration is Palm Springs, and the image we're starting with is of a daughter who takes some of her mom's really cool clothes and makes them her own. Everything is really short to deal with the summer heat, so there are miniskirts, great shirtdresses, plus really beautiful soft blouses.
