My mother bought me and taught me a lot about designers from a very young age. I wore my little YSL rust corduroy jeans from 3rd to 5th grade, when they got too small for me. I had a Pierre Cardin windbreaker type jacket that I loved in 4th grade and a Pierre Cardin shirt dress that I didn't like so much, but my mother made me wear on special days. I read YSL's biography in 6th grade, even though I didn't know what half of it meant. By the age of 8, I loved looking at fashion illustrations in the newspaper's style section and the fashion reviews in WWD. I also knew a lot about Mary McFadden Fortuny pleats (and how to keep them neat) and Ungaro, because he was my mother's favorite designer. I loved a little pair of reflective rainbow swoosh Nikes that my mom finally bought for me in the 4th grade. I LOVED those shoes.

I've done a lot of things I love because...I love what I do.
