For those of you who, like myself, have been salivating over the Gadino handbag, I have information on Hilde Gadinos new collection. For quite some time now, I have been longing for the pink Madison, but determined early on that it was not available for purchase within the US. I decided to write to the company to discern whether one could be purchased through Gadino directly. To my surprise, I received a most warm and receptive reply from Hilde Gadino herself. As I confessed to her, I was not only overwhelmed, but I was humbled by hearing from the designer herself. With her permission, I am posting the letter as it contains updated information on her newest collection (including prices). Pictures are available on her website.
