Lilian Asterfield's neck accessories!
Boston based artist, Nicole Deponte had no idea what she was getting into when she was given two trash bags full of neckties.
Four years later with the help of her B.F.A. in sculpture and 15 years of retail experience, Deponte's Lilian Asterfield label is redefining the fashion world's perception of the necktie, offering innovative alternatives for both men and women. Her designs have found their way into the hearts of MTV's Switch Blog, ABC LA's Must Haves, Living Green, Coolhunting and Nylon Daily Boston Edition to name a few. Her designs are currently available on line and nationally in high-end boutiques.

- Four New York City designers of fashion and jewelry joined forces to open TRUNK in Oct 2009, an exciting fusion boutique and exhibit space in DUMBO, Brooklyn’s trendy fashion enclave. The collections at TRUNK feature unique women’s wear, jewelry, accessories, art and furniture, all locally designed and manufactured. The store itself provides a backdrop for the products, making a bold statement that “style can be created and found locally.” Through their partnership at TRUNK, independent designers Aimee Grubel, Ilse Eriksson, Natasha Samoylenko and Radka Osickova bridge many aesthetics and backgrounds, from Europe and rural America to New York City. TRUNK provides an exciting platform for their varied creations, as well as for the work of invited designers and exhibitors.
