FedEx overnight is so yesterday when you consider that now you can go to the Allan Knight showroom, choose from hundreds of bolts of fabric, and take exactly what you need with you out the door. No more waiting. And we’re not talking about open stock fabrics that you can find anywhere. These are all designed by Allan Knight and Lisa Babincsak, with custom embroidery inspired by fashion haute couture. Their design influences range from the intricate mosaics of the Byzantine Empire to South American Indian symbolism and modern European design. Don’t feel like hauling the fabric by hand? How about a quilted leather weekender bag with a chic stylized Greek key motif? It’s much more stylish than the usual showroom paper bag.
