My daughter Jordana and her much-admired black cashmere coat with hand-cut designs, currently on display - along with a similar white coat - at Saks Fifth Avenue in Phipps Plaza, Atlanta, Ga. Michael Fink, vice president of women's fashion for Saks, selected each garment from more than 100 undergraduate and graduate student designs while serving as a juror for the Savannah College of Art & Design's 2008 Fashion Show on May 17. Andre Leon Talley, Vogue magazine's editor-at-large, pronounced Jordana's coat "gorgeous; just gorgeous."
I once worked in corporate communications for Saks Fifth Avenue in New York. Never did I imagine that one day I'd have a daughter whose designs were exhibited at a Saks store!
Check back later for more photos of Jordana's designs. And remember that job interview with a great company the Monday following her graduation from SCAD? They're flying her back for another interview, so fingers crossed! Your good wishes and positive energy would be much appreciated.
