BPR In The News!

Emmett & his darling dog Gizmo
When we visited Emmett McCarthy's EMC2 boutique, he was excited to tell us how he made a mention of our blog in a recent interview he did for the North Haven Citizen! Click here to read the whole article. Emmett was as gracious and kind as you can imagine. We met his mother (who baked a loaf of Irish Soda Bread just for us!), his sister and his dog Gizmo!

One of the things we learned on our Tour was how truly appreciative the designers are of all of us. They have been given a tremendous opportunity from their exposure on Project Runway. Emmett's store is spectacular. Make sure to stop in whenever you get the chance. He'll be there! Thanks for the mention Emmett and thanks to Karen and iwasastarfish for the article link!

Here's another Connecticut article, a February review from the New Haven Advocate. It explains the show's appeal thusly: "The strangeness of high fashion seems condescending when we see it only at the end of the process, as the clothes are sashayed down the runway by disturbingly elongated models (with all the world's beautiful people in attendance with their tiny dogs). But it becomes a compliment to our capacity to appreciate new kinds of beauty when it's the product of individual, vulnerable designers working under pressure and with limited means."

Those eyes....

Emmett has the most incredible eyes in person. He was such a gracious host to us-and I loved meeting Gizmo too.
