Project Runway is back on the air and I saw a fantasy league on line for it the other day....yes, a fantasy league. Each person picks three designers and you win points each episode if one of your designers wins a challenge (4 pts), cries (3 pts), gets Tim Gunn to say "make it work" (2 pts), etc. I just wish I thought of it or read about it before the season started. Is there still time to start one? Let me know your thoughts.

I recently came across these handmade cards in a boutique shop near my home in Brooklyn. Created by illustrator Jane Buck, they are hand screened and part of a collection of goods she makes for her company 'foxy & winston' .

You designers out there know that we are always looking for the perfect image to convey a mood and a color palette for a collection. Actually to me, this is one of the fun parts about being a designer. Anyway, I came across a blog from a fellow fashion designer/artist, called 'Kris's color stripes'. On the site there are inspiring images matched with created color palettes.
