Her enthusiasm, CREATIVITY and boundless talent that have her at the forefront of fashion and for the past 40 years.
"Making clothes involves what I like... color, pattern, shape, and movement... I like the everday process... the people, the pressure, the surprise of seeing the work alive walking and dancing around on strangers. Like red lipstick on the mouth, my products wake up and brighten and bring the wearer to life... drawing attention to her beauty and specialness... her moods and movement... her dreams and fantasies."
