Follow your bliss Carla

I was a little sad to watch Carla during the Top Chef finale. I really wished she would have just stayed with her original ideas. She will more than likely win fan's favorite. The only thing I can say is follow your heart and don't let anyone make you stray from your path. Follow your bliss Carla you are an amazing person and chef. You made me smile during the whole season and I love how you showed everyone that it's never too late to follow your dreams. I love her strong spirit and hope I will have to opportunity to enjoy here great food soon.

Kate Towers

I love designer Kate Towers; I was very excited when she took time out of her busy schedule to grant me an interview.

What inspires you: moods, moments, colors, weather, fairy tales, desires, objects in every day life, textures. how can i merge these feeling in to my designs?

Where did you study fashion design: i didn't. i've mostly just been experimenting on my own for about 10 years. this gives me a sense of freedom when i design - i'm not always concentrating on what i "should" be doing rather than what "feels" right. i really tend to let things evolve as i go. sometimes things turn out beautifully, and sometimes it's a disaster!

What is your favorite thing to design: DRESSES!

Who is your favorite designer: i can really appreciate many different designers and styles. a few favorites: victor and rolf, helena horstedt, rodarte, lanvin... too many severely talented people out there to name them all. even locally where i live - i am surrounded by a hugely creative force.

Most memorable advice you've been given: don't sweat the small stuff.... yeah right! but if you're having a really bad day or frustrating time in the studio ( at work, wherever) it does sometimes help to stop for a moment and look at the big picture. often i am stressing over lots of little things that really aren't all that crucial. also the whole tortoise and the hare scenario - it really does pay to be slow and steady sometimes.

Worst advice ever given: can't think of anything. i don't always take the advice of others!

Advice you'd give starting or aspiring fashion designer: you have to have your own thing, style, signature. it's great to be inspired by others but it's also important to make it special, different. you also better be able to work hard! blood, sweat, and tears people!

Favorite color: gray and white

If you could eat only one thing: raw almonds

Vinyl or ipod: a mix of noise makers and types of music

You can't live without: my husband, my daughter, time and space to create, sugar :)

In case you didn't know

It is with very heavy hearts that we say farewell. Over the last 4 years, in 28 issues, we have done our best to create a great magazine. We started with a real idea—that style is for everyone—and tried to carry it out with stories that provide inspiration and empower you to act on it. From your tremendous response, we know that we were onto something. In this tough economy, however, we simply weren't able to get the advertising support we needed.

As domino evolved, we never lost sight of our original democratic premise. Looking back at the manifesto we published in the premiere issue, the first tenet of domino is still the truest: Home should make you happy. We hope we have played a part in making this come true for you.

All the editors of domino
