Isabel Toledo on her love of sewing (1989):
"I really love the technique of sewing more than anything else…the seamstress is the one who knows fashion from the inside! That's the art form really, not fashion design, but the technique of how it's done."
Look closely at "the dress" - here is has breast pockets........

What a week it has been here in DC!! Tuesday was Christian Siriano - a great night, for certain! But tonight was an UNFORGETTABLE night! I just spent 90 minutes 10 feet away from Isabel and Ruben Toledo and a jacket made from "THE LACE"! Of course the back story of Mrs. O's inaugural dress was fascinating but the best, the very BEST, part of the evening was when Isabel talked about her love of sewing. Her description of her love affair with textiles and construction is just how I feel about fabric and sewing and design! Ohhhhhhh, I am gone!
