Toledos:Marriage in Fashion Heaven

Apparently we aren't the only ones who are big fans and are keeping a close watch on the Toledos:

The marriage of Isabel and Ruben Toledo is a typical New York love affair. As Cuban immigrants they met in Spanish class in a West New York high school, became best friends, fell in love after graduation, got married, and started a design company. Theirs is a design company of opposites: While Ruben created whimsical, surrealist fashion illustrations, Isabel crafted shapely, organic clothes. Paying mathematical precision to pattern construction and cut, Isabel's avant-garde sensibility paired with her devotion to American sportswear has had New York routing for her and her artist husband since the 80s, and I'm hoping that both of them will finally get the recognition they deserve.

check out what NYTimes and PaperMag had to say about Isabel's debut line this year for Anne Klein.
