All About Gilles

Our friend Gilles Mendel has been very busy: from the beautiful FNO event at the Madison Avenue J. Mendel boutique last week to Michelle Obama’s luncheon at the White House (he won the National Design Award for exceptional and exemplary work in the category of Fashion) and, of course, the amazing New York Fashion Week show! We’ve always adored Mendel’s work and are very happy to see an exciting new direction for Spring.
