KIT-TEE GIVEAWAY! (NOW CLOSED)

6/21 UPDATE: THANKS SO MUCH TO EVERYONE THAT ENTERED!  YOU'RE ONE WEIRD BUNCH XOXOXOXOXOXO!!!! CONGRATS TO SARAH MELVILLE!!!!

My Fall 2010 collection was about bad luck. I used number 13s, broken mirrors, and black cats. The cats were particularly polarizing - you know how people either love them or hate them. A couple buyers were in the "hate" category so my sales showroom told me to take them out of the collection which I did.



At the time I posted these hilarious updates. Still makes me laugh. 



A few months later Elle ran this lil guy in the magazine and on-line:


The response was overwhelming. Hundreds of fashionable cat ladies were e-mailing and calling me, my showroom,  my stores. They wanted, they needed! One woman was convinced that it was her dearly departed pet but her kitty had never done any modeling (I got the photo from a stock photography site). Even a year later, when I finally produced the kit-tee and e-mailed her fans, they were still enthusiastic and I sold almost all of them.

Sadly I only have XS and S left but I'm giving one away! Just comment on this post, make sure you include your email address. I'll say here and on Facebook when the contest is closed xoxoxoxo

  10. So brilliant! A good black cat is always hard to turn down (as is an albino alligator!) You do amazing work, and I've been enjoying the fashion and the wit here immensely.

  11. How come there are people who are afraid of cats? I don't understand this. Cats are so beautiful, I don't see what anyone can't love.

    Your shirt is a beautiful work of art. The cat is both sweet, and serious. Much of your designs show that same sort of dichotomy.

    Best of luck to you. I love your work.

    Meow !

    Some cats are bastards, some of the time. The moody little shits deserve love like everyone. You've made them attractively wearable. Even though I might hate cats sometime i do love you all the time. This might also go well with my "Puppies are bullshit" tee.

    xs or small I'll wear what you give me!
