- your name, name of your store, year opened
Rati Sahi, Anica Boutique, October 2006
-tell us a bit about your shop and your inspiration to open
My inspiration was to do something that hasn't been done before (in San Francisco). More progressive designers that have not been featured in the city from all over the world. A focus on geometric shapes. To help women use fashion to be self expresssive.
-what item is currently on your covet list? What item could you not resist buying for yourself?
the Leyendecker arrival top with the braided color. I lovethe boxy shape.
-who is your personal "it" designer right now?
I would have to go with united bamboo, its just up my alley. I am really looking forward to getting their spring collection in the store.
-what is your recommendation for designers who want to be be carried in your store?
Be different, that's always what catches my eye. Also, to go with it, whatever you want your line to say you should just go with it.
-what is the biggest trend that is currently impacting your buying decisions?
the boyish charm, oversized blazers, white lace up repettos , bib dresses and tops, black and white tuxish styles
