summer's toast plus one hot brand. http://www.realmbyjessewalker.com/page6446.htm?blog=1724 <p><strong><span style="font-family: Arial">Thanks to Lucky magazine (in particular Betsy Lowther) for their noticing my &quot;alluring&quot;

It seemed to rain every Sunday I planned to do Eastern Market too; sorry I missed so many of you.</span></strong></p><p>One steamy August day I happily took refuge at <a href="http://www.upstairson7th.com"><span style="color: #ff0000">Upstairs on 7th</span></a>, the latest store to carry an exclusive line of my jewelry.&nbsp; Owner Ricki Peltzman put on a trunk show for my Couture pieces and it was a smashing success.&nbsp; Ricki's small boutique is attached to Touchstone Gallery in Penn Quarter.&nbsp; I've never seen so much glamour packed into 300 square feet.&nbsp; If you haven't seen it, you should, and say hi to Ricki!</p><p>&nbsp; <img height="240" alt="" width="320" src="http://www.impactfolios.com/realm/media/October%2008%20007.JPG" /></p><p>And as fall begins I, at long last, have a new logo!&nbsp; When I conceived of the REALM concept I hoped to convey in the name that each of us creates our own world, our own realm by the fashion choices we make.&nbsp; I envisioned something with a keyhole through&nbsp;which one could see my artistic vision beyond.&nbsp; Hard to explain, harder still to design.&nbsp; All&nbsp;the while I kept having people come up to me at shows and say,&nbsp;<em>&quot;Oh, you're the pin guy!&quot;</em>&nbsp; And so I am.&nbsp; What's more iconic for REALM than a kilt pin&nbsp;logo?&nbsp; My thanks (once again) to my friend artist <a href="http://www.kellytowles.com"><span style="color: #ff0000">Kelly Towles </span></a>for his translation.</p><p>And last but certainly not least; I want everyone to know that the multi armed &quot;Goddess&quot; Icon that's been on&nbsp;my website&nbsp;homepage for a few months now, was created brilliantly by my mom, Marlene Walker, who is an artist and graphic designer.</p> Tue, 14 Oct 2008 04:03:50 EST http://www.realmbyjessewalker.com/page6446.htm?blog=1724?blog=1724 A taste of Daily Candy while browsing LA. http://www.realmbyjessewalker.com/page6446.htm?blog=1326 <p>Thank you Daily Candy.&nbsp; If you missed the article on my new collection at <a href="http://www.redeemus.com"><font color="#ff0000">Redeem</font></a>, you'll find it (<em>Jesse's Girl,</em> May 5th) <a href="http://www.dailycandy.com/washington_dc/article/36458/Jesses+Girl"><font color="#ff0000">here</font></a><font color="#ff0000">.</font>&nbsp; Thanks everyone for your comments.&nbsp;&nbsp;</p><p>That story appeared while we were winding up a trip to LA&nbsp;where I had a chance to be among the &quot;Den of Thieves&quot;&nbsp;selling&nbsp;at Kelly Towles' West Coast coming-out party.&nbsp; Kelly's new works, &quot;Highway Robbery&quot;, are as irrevrant and fun as ever&nbsp;and the party was a hit.&nbsp; If you haven't seen Kelly's work, check out his <a href="http://www.kellytowles.com"><font color="#ff0000">site.</font></a>&nbsp;&nbsp; Thanks to Kelly and POOL Tradeshow LA., the sponsors of the event.&nbsp; POOL's LA gallery space (LOOP) has ongoing events which present and promote&nbsp;emerging artists.&nbsp; If you're in the area, check <a href="http://www.pooltradeshow.com"><font color="#ff0000">them</font> </a>out to see&nbsp;the latest edge&nbsp;in art and fashion (and pictures from the party.)&nbsp;&nbsp;POOL's mission to showcase&nbsp;small, indepedent designers is unique and&nbsp;so appreciated!&nbsp; On the other edge of the fashion /art spectrum are LA's more established stores.&nbsp; Everyone has their own list but I'll mention one of my favorites which you might not know: <a href="http://www.blackmancruz.com"><font color="#ff0000">Blackman/Cruz.</font></a>&nbsp; They don't sell clothing or jewelry but collectible accessories for the home.&nbsp; I can't afford any of them, but browsing through the store (acrylic-encased monkey hearts; original Buck Rogers ray guns; antique safes and&nbsp;large turn-of-the-century&nbsp;French&nbsp;X-Ray lights) is like walking the floor of of a tasteful Ripley's museum.&nbsp; It appeals to my own passion&nbsp;for mixing eclectic items and presenting them in a way you wouldn't have imagined.&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;One final word on LA: Hybrid!&nbsp; We've been many times before but never used only 3 gallons of gas.</p><p>I'm looking forward to this weekend's <a href="http://www.squidfire.com"><font color="#ff0000">Squidfire</font></a> show&nbsp;in Baltimore.&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;It's rain or shine...&nbsp;</p><p>&nbsp;</p><p>&nbsp;</p> Wed, 07 May 2008 03:55:59 EST http://www.realmbyjessewalker.com/page6446.htm?blog=1326?blog=1326
