“Like the tiger indigenous to Sumatra, this coffee is big, bold, unpredictable and utterly captivating”

Found: Starbucks Sumatra coffee bag. Who knew coffee could be so exciting?


Impression Le Reveillon

Impression Le Reveillon

by Oscar Wilde

The sky is laced with fitul red

The circling mists and shadows flee

The dawn is rising from the sea

Like a white lady from her bed

And jagged broken arrows fall

Athwart the feathers of the night

And a long wave of yellow light

Breaks silently on tower and hall,

And spreading wide across the wold

Wakes into flight some fluttering bird,

And all the chestnut tops are stirred,

And all the branches streaked with gold.


Found: Online I think. I love the imagery.


All students in their third year of the Textile and Apparel Design Program submit a portfolio for portfolio review. Portfolio Review (back in November) was a night of friends, food, and of course, fashion. It was great to see everyone’s work, and to show my friends and family what us TAD (Textile and Apparel Design) kids do. I was also excited to receive portfolio of distinction. My parents came and we went out to eat after wards at my favorite Chinese restaurant, Fu Gu. (Rufan introduced it to me, and I love it.) Elena and Adam came later and we saw Harry Potter 7 on Imax! It was a really nice night- a great way to celebrate everyone’s hard work. So, without further ado, here is my first portfolio. Many thanks to my photographers, Luke Burke and Eric Gaurkee, and my models Nathalie, Kelly, and Miki.
