Patchwork

Last week's NY Times Style section included an article on fashion designer & NYC resident Cynthia Rowley, chronicling her week activities leading up to the holiday. The photo attached with the article shows Rowley in a long to the floor patchwork style skirt.  Classic in design, yet with a modern take by choice of pattern and color. I couldn't help but recall how patchwork style has transcended through the years for both fashion & home.  Check out below....
