ilana

I met Ilana several years ago as she was first starting her eponymous clothing line. She's a talented textile designer and tailor, matching her custom prints on simple, wearable silhouettes. We've often traded clothing for perfume and every time she comes to the Dobbin Mews for a visit, she asks what new scents there are and enthusiastically sprays some on. There's nothing more gratifying to a perfume maker than a perfume lover!
