Q&A with Priscilla Taylor

We chatted with designer Priscilla Taylor, for P.Taylor Clothing, before her trunk show at Dovecote this Saturday, October 29th and Sunday, October 30th. Here is what she shared with us about this season’s collection!

What was your inspiration this season?
The early morning light gives everything a warm inviting glow. I wanted our colors to reflect the morning light.

How does your brand develop from season to season?
I try to choose styles and colors that work into everyone’s closet or into everyone’s style.

What is your favorite piece from your current collection and why?
The Sonoma Shirt! I love this shirt . . . I wear it with my jeans and my skinny black pants. It fits into any occasion and I love detail on the back of the shirt.

Do you have recommendations on styling items from your collection?
My shirts showcase everyone’s personal collection of scarves and jewelry.

What is you ideal OOTD (outfit of the day)? Describe your outfit and how your brand plays a key role.
A great over sized shirt with cigarette pants or skinny pants and fabulous boots. These are 3 key basic pieces to creating a great outfit.

We hope to see you at P. Taylor’s trunk show this weekend!
