Do you remember?
What is the most memorable place that you have ever been a place that changed your life, your direction? What was that direction and where did you end up afterward? I was walking through the garment district today, and I suddenly remembered when I first came to New York, the most pivotal moment in my life. I was requested by Nian Fish at KCD to come to New York to audition for the Versus Spring fashion show by Gianni Versace. I walked into the Calvin Klein building on 39th street and waited in line with the most beautiful model I had ever seen her name was Alek, darlings, it was Alek Wek before she was a supermodel. I was so excited, well I spent four years in the industry as a model it was a very hard and amazing time, I think it was most amazing because I spent my entire childhood being told I was never good looking enough, being told my dreams were ridiculous. I met some of the most interesting people in art, fashion, entertainment, for one moment I was beautiful and could believe in more, it was also a very lonely time. That is when I started searching for what it was that made me happy, made me whole.
Well to get back to the garment district I found the most beautiful lace today from a mill in france, handmade like they used to do in the early centuries, I want to create beautiful gowns from it.
I have some amazing news, a little red carpet surprise keep posted I will let you know what it is.
