Probably the most fruitful part of the year was the addition and collaboration with Ashley. With a background in fashion design and creative direction, Ashley’s International career led her to work with Ralph Lauren to Calvin Klein and Nautica. Her attention to detail and pure understanding of luxury brands and fabrics makes her a true asset.
Admittedly it’s been a while since I posted. I guess that’s because we have been busy! Reflecting on the year, and setting sights and goals for 2019, it fills me with great gratitude to look back on the people and projects that we have collaborated with. Here are just a few highlights.
PALM BEACH YACHTS + GRAND BANKS YACHTS
This has been an exciting and inspiring relationship. With three trips to the overseas factory in one year, I’ve really gotten to know the ins and outs of this amazing company. I’ve helped with in-house material schemes and have had the pleasure of working with their amazing clients on helping their dreamboats come to fruition. The GT 50 that launched in Newport was a great opportunity to flow. Helping to develop the sportscar of the line was right in my wheelhouse.
MORRIS YACHTS 42’ REFIT
It was a real pleasure to work with the clients of this M42. We refreshed the boat to reflect the true personality and style of her new owners. From boutique Ralph Lauren fabrics, to vintage brass flatware, this boat is a true gem on the water. We welcomed the opportunity to get to know Dodson’s Boatyard in Stonington, CT a bit better through the process.
62’ OYSTER YACHTS REFIT
This was another great project, and again, great fun to transform the interior to suite the style of her new owners. Updated white countertops, fabrics, bedding and upholstery really elevated this sailboat. We also worked with the Chef and owner to outfit the galley and heads with all the essentials for charter and private use.
