A Colin Cowie Interview

Brad: You’ve managed to be a high-profile and sought after wedding and event planner, an accomplished lifestyle expert, a designer of very well-received (and beautiful) home décor and house wares, and a successful author, with the first of three new books to be published this autumn.  How do you do it all?  And how do you […]

The Tom Ford Natalia Bag

I admit, it’s a pleasing feeling when someone like Tom Ford, a man who insists on doing things his own way when it comes to presenting his seasonal lines, sells men’s and women’s accessories through Neiman Marcus like his peers.  It’s endearing in a way; “Mr. Ford, who doesn’t show anything, anything, on the runway, sells bags and […]
