I was having a very average kind of day at the office when my doorbell started to ring. And ring. And ring. Slowly but surely the office filled up with our designers, bearing drinks and gifts.

I knew Beth and Louise Gray had been scheming to surprise me with something to celebrate Fashion East turning 10 ..but I couldnt be prepared for the INCREDIBLENESS of this gift. It is beyond special- the thought and talent expressed in it sums up the people I've been lucky enough to work with for the last decade...

Louise's crazy wrapping..yum! What's inside?

Oh. My. God. A beautiful quilt, each square a work of art from one of our designers, bound together with a fluoro border from Kim Jones, sewn together by Louise. HOW AMAZING??!!
