los angeles textile show

Yesterday I attended the LA textile show in downtown Los Angeles. Perfect timing as next week I will start emptying my head of all the Spring 2012 ideas whirling around inside. I'm feeling as though our last trip to Costa Rica will be a great inspiration for this collection and in fact, I bought my first print artwork!! For those of you who don't know, you can buy one of a kind artwork to develop into fabric~ which then will be exclusive to you. Whoa, let me just tell you how hard of a decision that was. I used to pick out prints for BCBG and Arden B all the time, but when its your own $$ and brand its a whole new ballpark. I'm totally happy with my decision and excited about the beautiful poppy, chartreuse and teal color story that will become of it.

meet annie.

While flipping through the channels this last weekend, I stumbled upon a documentary on Annie Leibovitz. Up until that point, I really didn't know a whole lot about Annie except that she was an amazing photographer. I soon found out that she has shot EVERYONE! From her rock n' roll days at The Rolling Stones, to movie stars and politician at Vanity Fair to high fashion at Vogue, her resume is long yet her ego remains low. If you get a chance, I highly recommend seeing this documentary, "Annie Leibovitz: Life through a Lens". It's inspirational.

How did you get inspired this last weekend?

kendall k. press tour 2011 ha!

So I'm taking off today for the desert to do a whirlwind of three radio interviews. One today at 3:00 on 94.3 the Joey English Show, one tomorrow morning, Dan McGrath will interview me on 103.1 fm and another on Monday afternoon- Lee Rayburn show on 94.3 knews fm. Additionally, I will be featured on KMIR news, the local, big-time news station in the desert!! I feel so glamorous being shuffled from one interview to another.

I'm promoting my trunk show at Tink boutique on El Paseo next Thursday from 2-6! Also next week is fashion week on El Paseo, which reminds me I still need to buy my tickets. I feel like it's full-circle, going back to the town where it all began...
Hope you all have a great weekend!! xo

"Godfathers of Glam"

I am a huge Depeche Mode fan, HUGE. So of course when I saw this photo of Dave Gahan my heart skipped a beat. New York times did a great job on portraying the "Godfathers of Glam". A few more notable mentions, Iggy Pop and David Johanson from the New York Dolls. Although some of them look like they have been through the ringer, they probably have some crazy stories to tell...

Check out the entire photo shoot here.

a beautiful new hobby

I just put together the flower arrangements for the party tomorrow and can I just tell you friends two things:
1.) It is SOOO much cheaper to arrange yourselves, especially if you buy at Trader Joe's. Helpful hint: go early to get the best picks~ flowers are delivered daily!
2.) I found it to be quite soothing.
My favorite flowers are peonies. Now tell me, what are some of your favs??

Hope you all have a wonderful weekend!

Did Kate Moss really just walk the runway to finish the show for Louis Vuitton?...while smoking a cigarette ?! Oh, how very chic of her. It's the trifecta of cool, Marc Jacobs, Kate Moss and Louis Vuitton, does it get any better? See the entire show here.

and... I'm SO EXCITED to announce the first kendall k. giveaway happening right now over at destined to design! she is giving away the "grace" to one lucky winner. perfect for the upcoming wedding season. good luck :)

I'm a shipping machine

Woah, so last week was a bit nuts...but in a good way of course! I shipped out 90% of my orders, dropped my fall collection off at my showroom, finalized the look book and made (serious) contact with a NY showroom. I'm shipping off a few pieces for them to review so wish me luck...if picked up, my pieces could be sitting pretty next to Yuma Kim and Isabella Lu!

For now, here are a few shots of my fall 2011 collection. Happy Monday!
