This is very beach grunge.
We do this on her knits in the summer days,
so when you would get hot, you would take off the sleeves.
[Sofia] That's so cute. I never saw that.
Take a little walk like that.
[Sofia] So, do you feel ready for your show in two weeks?
Almost. Yeah, we're getting there.
[Sofia] Do you feel more pressure that it's
your first show on your own, or it's always the same
kind of show together, there's always?
I think it's a different pressure.
[Sofia] Are you a little more nervous?
[Sofia] Or are you just getting it off that?
I'm just waiting for things to come back,
make sure they look as great as they are in my mind.
But, um, I think you're always nervous, for sure.
I don't know if I'm more than before.
It's an exciting moment.
I think it's more exciting than..
I am starting to have little dreams.
Strong dreams of, you know.
The moments and things are not ready.
This is the show.
[Sofia] Okay. I won't look too much,
so I can be surprised.
Show notes. It's looking good.
We have really beautiful girls.
We have a few sisters.
[Sofia] Oh, really?
I wanted you to see Georgia's coming.
She's about to arrive. I wanted you to see her.
And her sister, Lizzie.
[Sofia] Oh, cute.
[Sofia] That's cute.
Then we have A.D. Campbell, and her sister, as well.
[Sofia] Oh, I didn't know. Is her sister a model?
Yeah, she's very cute.
I think you had seen this one as the..
[Sofia] Oh, no.
Jungle face. Little wrap.
[Sofia] Very glamorous.
And this one I love.
Yeah, I think this is a good one.
It's the knitted smink.
[Sofia] Can you model that?
You want me to try it on? Sure.
[Sofia] Oh, these look cute.
My sleeve in there.
[Sofia] Oh, I love that.
It's soft. Knitteds.
[Sofia] I love that.
But I love how you make it look like it's a
sweatshirt, or no big deal.
[Sofia] Cute, so cute.
There's no orange.
To make the weight. The weight.
[Sofia] That's funny.
I like how it looks like rikeal but something new.
Cute. Really cute.
[Sofia] I love that fabric.
And we belted it at the..
And I'm so happy about the logo, see all the new labels.
[Sofia] Oh, that looks chic.
This is the belts for the..
[Sofia] Oh, those are nice.
[Sofia] I love belts.
Here we take a good old children's bag.
[Sofia] Oh, cute.
What an evening's fake fur?
How many different styles are there?
[Sofia] Different shoes?
Eighty, ninety pairs of shoes.
[Sofia] Oh, don't say it.
Oh, yeah, I'm excited to see how you weave the bags.
You'll see the difference of.
This is across body.
[Sofia] Oh, that's so cute.
And then you have it just kind of plain leather.
And then you can take this off,
and then it becomes a little clutch.
For the night.
Throw a string.
[Sofia] Ah, that's a good idea.
So, you have your little clutch,
where you're just going to the party.
[Sofia] Oh, that's good.
You can go from the office.
From day to night. From day to night.
I think these came out really cute.
[Sofia] Oh, I love that shape.
Had they stopped making the domino for awhile?
The domino? Yeah, they stopped it.
But we reworked it completely.
It didn't have a chain,
it didn't really look like this.
[Sofia] That's the idea, yeah.
The idea of something supple and round,
we worked it even as a clutch.
Returning as a clutch.
[Sofia] Oh, I like it as a clutch with all
the stuff on it.
[Sofia] Romy and I had a big fight this morning
because she didn't want to wear a good dress today,
we had a whole thing about her outfit.
She knows what she wants.
So, it's good when a girl knows what she wants to wear.
[Sofia] Yes, but.
That's what I was like.
[Sofia] Yeah. I guess I was, too.
The girls. Each girl has their character.
It's more about real girls, you know?
Each one is going to have their character, their hair,
Their just kind of cool girl's as themselves.
It's the clothes it's about.
Just clothes that you want to wear, you know?
[Sofia] In real life.
We need to keep everything together.
Everything just comes together,
and when you start seeing the dress with the shoes,
and the bag, and the girl.
That's when you get even more emotions.
