Kate Russel's Profile
It all started in London, on Portabello Rd.
I'd dig through the market to find a treasure in just the right state of decay.
One day I spotted a rusty cage crinoline hanging in a shop window and I fell in love.
For years I worked in that antique clothing shop, where I was archivist, seamstress, and lady-in-waiting to the grande dame in charge.
I helped everyone from John Galliano to Donna Karan find what they needed for their collections.
That place still haunts my dreams, and the urge to collect continues.
My obsession is your gain.
