Ten pounds in a Five Pound Bag, a-hey!

Things are falling into place for Pandora's Trunk upcoming October 25th event!! Last night the musical director and I took ourselves to a warren of rehearsal spaces off of 6th st in soma, counting rats and junkies on our way in. We watched Michael play a gourd with a saxophone reed jammed onto the end of it and brainstormed ways to shoehorn some more magic into our Trunk. scroll down for some cool links on our fashion ancestry.

Today on the inspiration train we are having tea with Paul Poiret. "Poiret was notorious for throwing lavish parties, and plays featuring his designs. Such famous parties, as, "The Thousand and Second Night" (based on The Arabian Nights), on June 24th, 1911 hosted over 300 guests required to dress up in 'Oriental' costuming. In cases in which guests attended improperly attired, they were requested to either outfit themselves in some of Poiret's 'Persian' outfits, or leave. "

Let's hope that our Thousand and One Fabulous Nights designers can avoid Poiret's sad fate. We promise not to run off and serve the military.
