Annie, Jess and Mel

From L to R: With Annie; with Jessica; Melini

“How did you come up with names for the designs?”¬† That’s a question I’ve been asked¬†several times.

When the design prototypes were finalized and it was time to give a name to each style, the first names that came to my mind were the names of long-time friends of mine who are passionate about movement, and have been extremely generous in providing input, comments and suggestions all along.

Annie¬†and¬†I¬†met through dance club in secondary school, where we¬†shared the same crazy enthusiasm over Chinese dance.¬† Annie’s now ¬†into pilates.¬† She has¬†always¬†been¬†my go-to person for a candid opinion on anything from styles and colors, to business ideas.¬† Annie loves halters, so the first halter in the collection was named after her.

Jessica is another dance fanatic I met through dance club.  She still attends ballet classes today.  Always thoughtful and infinitely patient, Jessica endured countless versions of my drafts in the planning stages and provided invaluable feedback.   The cami with the cute ruched front is named after her, not least for her unwavering support.

Melini¬†and¬†I met in¬†business school.¬† We bonded over job recruiting,¬†and share similar¬†interests in¬†dance and movement.¬† Yoga,¬†pilates, dance–she does them all with finesse.¬† Feedback, suggestions,¬†thoughts–she has given me more than I can thank her for.¬†¬†When it came to naming¬†the cami with the dance-inspired scoop back, Mel naturally came to mind.

And there you have it: Annie Halter, Jess Cami, and Mel Cami.

    If I were getting my home photographed to sell versus to post on a design blog, I think I would style it differently and the photographer would take pictures differently. I started to wonder why and if listing photos may look more desirable/help sell a house better if they looked more like the pics you see on design blogs. That is my question. Thanks!
