Taking a scarf on a trip can give you many more outfits with fewer pieces. -Debby Egger Jett Allbright
I escaped to New York City and Westport, CT for the Labor Day holiday and had the privilege of meeting Elizabeth Gillett in person. We have become friends over email and I wrote a blog post on her beautiful scarves, tunics and kimonos this spring. It was so much fun to visit her showroom on W 36th street and see all of her fabulous creations. My friend Roxie was with me and we had a blast trying on our favorite pieces. I have a selection to show you and am so impressed with her artistic talent and process for making the different styles. Elizabeth draws and watercolors the original artwork for the scarves which are then made one by one in India using a variety of techniques. There is truly something for everyone and I totally agree with Elizabeth who “believes a scarf is the ultimate accessary, an outfit changer that brightens the face like a great shade of lipstick, makes traveling fun and chic, screens us from heavy air conditioning or cold weather and helps us edit what’s shown and what’s covered in an easy, one size, timelessly style-able item.”
