I am thrilled to announce the " new look " for  OCARINE pillows. Still inspired by the iconic fashion designers like James Galanos, whose gowns are featured on this blog, but modernized and simplified. As before, the vintage beaded and embroidered pieces are from the 1940s through the 1960s, hand made in Los Angeles by Mary Ann Embroidery. The company worked for designers such as Galanos, as well as Norman Norrell, Bill Blass and Halston.
The pillows are sustainably designed and made, re purposing the original embroidered and beaded pieces. Also vintage trimming is used as well as overage yardage from  the showrooms and upholsterers.


Two pillows, Grace and Morganne, can be seen behind the post header.  All pillows come with a silk organza dust bag.

The new collection is available to the trade at Bausman & Company at the Pacific Design Center,
8687 Melrose Avenue, Suite B355, Los Angeles, CA 90069. 310.659.9459.

Other OCARINE pillows can be found at Egg & Dart Home, 529 La Cienega Blvd., Los Angeles,
CA 90048. 310.652.0425.

Please join me for a Trunk Show during Fall Market at the PDC. I will be at the Bausman Showroom from 11 AM to 5 PM on September 18. I will have dozens of the vintage embroidered and beaded pieces to show you to inspire to make your own pillows.
