Can't Keep This Under My Hat: A New Selvedge Story

 I was delighted this summer to write a story for Selvedge about Shilpa Chavan, designer of Little Shilpa extraordinary headpieces (just look at her glorious work below!). Lady Gaga has worn some Little Shilpa designs . . .

It was a pleasure to chat with the smart, cool and hip Ms. Chavan, and I was very fortunate to receive contextualizing comments from the uber milliner Philip Treacy (Shilpa interned with him some years ago) and the always articulate and savvy Sasha Wilkins of Liberty London Girl.

The digital issue is ready for North American digital subscribers and the paper copy is available in England.  I'm really looking forward to paper, as the art is particularly beautiful throughout this publication--the Etiquette Issue.

So I should mind my manners, and not crow, but just for today I'll throw caution to the wind.

I learn so much about fashion since I started blogging two yrs ago. Selvedge sounds like an interesting magazine. Wish paper copy was available in the US :(
Funny, I think your Russian dressing post I commented on yesterday was about the same magazine, if I remember correctly.

Maya, Selvedge should be available in Barnes and Noble. But there's about a month's lag time for the most recent issue to make its way across the pond. :-)

Thanks for the info. I'll definitely check it out on our next trip to Barnes and Noble.

Congratulations. I'm looking forward to reading your piece. For your Bay Area readers, I haven't found Selvedge in B&N but a friend gets it in a little magazine booth on Filmore St, San Francisco.
