Warm Brooklyn Night with Abacaxi

Abacaxi NYC silk maxi dress

Last week in Brooklyn I had the pleasure of meeting Sheena Sood, designer behind

Abacaxi NYC.

Her studio is full of colorful accents and tokens of her travels, which are also reflected in her designs.

We took the afternoon to chat, and as I got to know the woman behind the clothes, I gathered instantly that her bright personality was incorporated into each stitch and swatch of fabric.

We went out just before sunset to take these photos and eat dinner at a splendid Mexican restaurant in the neighborhood. I had fun twirling around the in the street in this beautiful aqua silk dress.
