Step boldly into Fall

Baby was here — Angels in America Opening

Baby & Company are ardent supporters of the arts and inherent believers in art’s beneficial effects on the quality of our lives. We were pleased to be in attendance at the Intiman Theater's opening of Tony Kushner’s Angels in America, a play in two parts: Millenium Approaches and Perestroika. Millennium Approaches marks in time and bravely reports from the center of the emerging HIV/AIDS crisis.

Seattle’s own Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center is a sponsor of the Intiman’s production. Andrew Russell, the creative producing director of the theater pointed out in his pre-show speech, “it’s likely that when a cure for HIV/AIDS is discovered, it will most likely happen in Seattle — at Fred Hutch!”  

The crowd was in good spirits with Mayor Ed Murray ending the opening on a high note,  “I attended funerals in my 30’s and weddings in my 50’s,” he said to crowd applause noting Washington’s marriage equality act.  

Angels in America is nearly 23 years old and as relevant today as when it debuted.  We are happy to see the continued education and hope that Angels in America can provide to new audiences. 

Andrew Russell wore our Mauro Grifoni Italian wool suit and a micro-print shirt by Anglini.  His partner, dancer and Baby & Company model Matt Drews wore an Isabel Beninato cashmere tunic with Esemplaré trousers. Both artists wore Marsèll shoes.

Q&A with Jill Donnelly from the Harvey Faircloth team

image

An inspiring conversation with Baby & Company co-owner and buyer Jill Donnelly is featured on Harvey Faircloth’s site in their brand new interview series, HF Q&A. We’re constantly finding inspiration from the team at Harvey Faircloth, and are so honored to be featured by them!

"So there isn’t a secret how we find designers.  We all want to think that we’re the first to discover something new, but generally someone has discovered it first, and they tell me.  As buyers there is a small group of us and we share our discoveries in different parts of the country or world. […] 

I also listen to who the designers like, and their inspiration – maybe they’re inspired by a designer I haven’t heard of. It’s really being curious, making discoveries and kind of following a tribe whose attitude, and spirit and focus and insight aligns with my own.” —Jill Donnelly
