A Fashionable Occasion: New York! New York!

An explosion of light, and the sharp, resounding crackle of camera lenses.  Wisps of unruly hair held in a perfect mass of tangle by sweet hairspray.  Nails and cuticles meticulously manicured, and the aroma of designer perfume that saturates the atmosphere.  Women with chiseled, elfish features wait patiently as they are fitted into loosely molded garments of densely contrasting colours.

Welcome to New York Fashion Week.

This is the last place on earth that you would expect to find the crisp, bright packaging of a local, handmade bar of soap.  And yet there, buried in The Artisan Group's elegant swag bags, at GBK's New York Fashion Week Luxury Gift Lounge, are the burlap packages of SimplyCaprine's Cedarwood Lime Goat's Milk Soap and Body Oil.

It's been a long road to get here, a journey overflowing with goat's milk, essential oils, silk ribbon, and scrapbooking paper.  But at last we've arrived and we take a step back to observe our work in pride.  And we couldn't be happier!
