Though this particular image was not selected for the cover of the Fall 2013 Zazou Catalogue, I still find it striking, romantic and soft.

The model’s face is extremely poignant, as she sweetly stares off into the distance, adorned in the Storm Coverup from Zazou. Around her are little june bugs and fireflies, who buzz and whisper softly as they float around her face.

Chic sophistication is properly exemplified through this image and its motif of “less is more” is successfully communicated.

“I can show you the world

Shining, shimmering, splendid

Tell me, princess, now when did

You last let your heart decide?
I can open your eyes

Take you wonder by wonder

Over, sideways and under

On a magic carpet ride
A whole new world

A new fantastic point of view

No one to tell us no or where to go

Or say we’re only dreaming
A whole new world

A dazzling place I never knew

But when I’m way up here, it’s crystal clear

That now I’m in a whole new world with you

Now I’m in a whole new world with you
Unbelievable sights

Indescribable feeling

Soaring, tumbling, freewheeling

Through an endless diamond sky

A whole new world

Don’t you dare close your eyes

A hundred thousand things to see(Hold your breath, it gets better)
I’m like a shooting starI’ve come so farI can’t go back

To where I used to be
A whole new world

Every turn a surprise

With new horizons to pursue

Every moment red-letter
I’ll chase them anywhere

There’s time to spare

Let me share this whole new world with you
A whole new world

That’s where we’ll be

A thrilling chase

A wondrous place

For you and me”

I am sorry, but when I saw the name of this fabulous scarf from the Fall 2013 Zazou collection, I just HAD to post this  song from the 1992 Disney classic, “Aladdin.”

This Zazou piece, which sells under the style number 1207, comes in three colors: excalibur (shown), fuchsia and tile blue. It is 20″ by 75″ slub rayon with combed fringe and wholesales for $12.  And, with that monetary fact in mind, it is important to note that styles which are $12 and under must be associated with a minimum order of two per color, and the minimum order itself is $200.

Throw on this scarf and fly toward your dreams on you own magic carpet!

Happy Thursday my pretty little zebras!

Today has been a bit unorthodox for me, which I love! Instead of primarily sitting at my desk typing away at my computer, I have been busy helping one of my fellow interns in the sample room. The sample room is filled to the brim with clothes and accessories, and the walls are lined with beautiful scarves of all shapes, colors, sizes and textures.

Our task for the afternoon was to organize the scarves onto boards, and line them up in accordance to color, length, fabrication and by how many scarves in that particular style we had in stock.

This was a fun challenge because it was extremely tangible and we were able to express our creativity.

Now, the room is miraculously organized, and all of the scarves are ready to be sent to the various showrooms Sterling Styles and Zazou will be participating in throughout the month of August.

We used skills learned from classes such as AMM 270 and 160 and AMM 160L, Textile Sciences, because we also organized the pieces by fabrication when necessary.

However, I am now back to my copywriting duties, typing away as I create content for this blog and the Zazou website. Earlier, I also completed some clerical work for the office.
