It's been said....

“There's more to clothing than just adornment.

It does more than merely change

how the world perceives us.

It changes how we perceive ourselves.”
 

― Jacqueline Carey, Naamah's Kiss

or wear a work of art"

STORY

When Denise Shardlow, principle designer at ERNSTdottir is asked why she’s so passionate about coats, she  describes how designing is akin to sculpting. She recounts all the possibilities of fabrics, silhouettes and embellishments. She talks about how wearing a fabulous coat on a dreary day can shift your mood.

Then enthusiastically, Glenn Kohler, Denise's Partner in Life & in business, begins to tell his story...
‘We were in London a few years back vacationing right before the Christmas Holiday
