Visited the Young Designers market in SoHo this weekend during the 4 hours I wasnt packing up my apartment.
And I met this girl: milliner of sorts Jillian Galla. I was pining- PINING- for one of her many hand made, beaded, feathered headpieces, but alas rent-week looming, I had to take a rain check. I will be back, my friends, I will be back.
Also glad to find that some are available to purchase online on her myspace. If Im feeling particularly lazy Ill take that route. In May, Jillian will also have a table set up on the sidewalk at Prince and Wooster.
Another YD notable: Castro NYC- dark jewelry --with the spirit of Jack Sparrow-- highly influenced by Atlantis and blackened coral reef, said the designer himself. Fell in love with the black coral ring with pearls and a single sparkling diamond and the "dripping" akoya pearl & chain drop earrings.
