I love having friends who do amazing and creative things in my favorite town, Portland, Oregon. I especially enjoy collaborating with my friend and business colleague Suzi Johnson, owner and mastermind of Souchi – a local designer working with cashmere. This winter we has so much fun with our favorite model Julia Britz photographing the catalog and look book for Suzi’s beautiful Fall 2011 line up. Her new colors and designs are to die for! I can’t wait to get my hands of one of these gems for my wardrobe. Alas, I will have to, these pieces will be in the Souchi Boutique in a few months. In the meantime, we can always dream. An additional shout out must be made to Jodie and the 220 Salon crew for allowing us to shoot the catalog in their glorious studio!
