Fashion and Design

The award for the most literal pairing of fashion and design came from Bryan Bradley the designer of Tuleh who showed his Fall 2009 collection in the Roubini Casa showroom at the New York Design Center where he is also debuting a new line of rugs. Tuleh is known for beautiful prints and feminine silhouettes and it will be interesting to see how they translate the patterns into rugs beyond those that you can see in the “runway” photos here.

Bradley’s inspiration for the fashion this season was the book Them: A Memoir of Parents by Francine du Plessix Gray which tells the story of her parents, Alexander Liberman, an artist who would later head Condé Nast and Tatiana du Plessix, a model and society milliner, and their resourcefulness as Russian émigrés. I have this book on my shelf but haven’t had time to read it yet. I hope when I do that it inspires my designs as it did Bryan’s fashions!

    I read how struck Bradley was by the Russian parents’ spirit of resourcefulness and adaptability, something we can all learn from in this economy. But instead of running scared like everyone else is, he is launching a diffusion line, an accessories collection, and an interiors business. Best of luck to him-he is very talented.

    I dare to dream to have a few pieces from his collection in my closet. I love the patterns and silouettes. The last dress is my fave!
