Winter into Spring

Last night Kiernan Shipka wore a dress that I designed specifically for her to the Screen Actors Guild Awards. Made from an incredibly soft navy velvet, the dress embodies my belief that a clean silhouette, impeccable tailoring, and the highest quality fabrics are the most important components to dressing a child for a special occassion. Children are so naturally beautiful that they don’t need a lot of embellishments.

While Kiernan is a TV star on a hit show, you don’t have to have a date with the red carpet for Papo d’Anjo to design a custom outfit for your son or daughter. Over the years our Made to Order department has created memorable pieces for weddings, first communions, baptisms, bat and bar mitzvahs and other special family events.

In other news, our Spring 2011 Collection is now online! I’ll be blogging about it more in the next few weeks, but for now I want to recommend the new Circle A-Line Top. I designed it in response to mothers’ requests for a more stylish cotton poplin shirt that can go with skirts or jeans and will hold up well even in the dog days of summer. It was a huge hit at our trunk shows. I hope you agree.
