It's been a really long time since we've had the opportunity to do a shoot with our gorgeous friend Maggie. Not since Here or There, but this past weekend provided the sunny sky's, my brother provided his boat and the girls brought their smiles!
I have been wanting to shoot a few of my favorite designs from an old collection I produced with my husband back in 1989. Camilla fit the romper brilliantly and the Sandra Dee dress appeared to be made for Maggie. The collection was designed around the concept of surf clothes for woman. Although we lived in NYC, my husband was a long time skater from the Dog Town era wearing Van's and OP's skating through the streets. We felt there needed to be a girls line with the same California vibe and that is how we came up with this. The really funny and crazy thing is the surf industry namely Quiksilver also thought so, and in 1990 Roxy was born. We were just in our early 20's at the time with no money to speak of or backing, but we have often thought wow, what if.
