trendsetting buying

I love buying. I am lucky enough to have had a wonderful career in retail. At Bloomingdale's I was responsible for all of their specialty shops, including the Annie Hall shop. At Barney's I traveled the world, Japan, Italy and France. I was the first buyer to buy Comme de Garson from Japan, opened the first NYC Agnes B shop and Il Bisonte handbag shop from Florence.

Spotting trends is at the core of what I do. At ABC Carpet and Home, I helped create a holistic children’s shop and transformed the main floor into a spiritual eco-friendly store. Pictured below are photos from my store, Homeward Bound. Homeward bound was a chain of 4 stores that featured an eclectic mix of home furnishings, clothing, home accessories and children’s clothing and toys, all with an eco-friendly vibe. I traveled to India to bring back beautiful furniture and accessories, culled all the New York shows, and High Point furniture market for the most stylish furniture, accessories and clothing.
