Things we’ve wondered about, but just haven’t made a priority. Things that would give us a feeling of accomplishment, the satisfaction of learning something new that feels somehow a bit greater or more, you know, sophisticated and maybe even…daring.

It’s no secret that we love a good Fashion Week extravaganza. We wait for show season with baited breath, not just because we love the pomp, the cocktails, and fantasy of it all (although we totally do, don’t get it twisted) but because we love how Fashion Week lets our imaginations run wild thinking about all the ways we could incorporate the fantasy into our real lives – and those of our gorgeous Handled clients.
