I'm off to Delhi, India, Monday morning to spend a few weeks there working on the Fall '10 line. I feel at home in Delhi, the vibrant city of color, aromas, and wonderful people. I love the motorcycles with the brilliantly clad woman in saris riding on the back - buzzing through traffic, the colorful birds in my garden in the morning, and the way my friends there have such an interest in so many different things.
The design trips are always wonderful because I am able to immerse myself in creative activity all day long, while working with the team who brings my sketches and concepts to life.
I'm often asked how I manage to travel so much with ease. I will be sure to have my carry-on essentialsin a soft bag with lots of pockets like the Mela bag. I love the color combinations.
I plan ahead a little and be sure to take the time to arrange for my personal comfort on the journey. I bring a good scarf to protect against plane drafts, dress comfortably, and am always sure to have a good book to enjoy along the way.
