NYFW debut

•••
This September, I debuted my first fashion collection at New York Fashion Week. It was a surreal moment when you dream of something and then it manifests. This dream of fashion didn't only exist for myself however, it existed for others. Fashion is always my vehicle to help others.

Stella McCartney, my most fave fashion designer

•••
Stella McCartney is my most favorite fashion designer. I know that's a strong statement, but it's true. I can't say that it's because I always love the styles she puts out there, but rather it's more based on her passionate core stance for ethical fashion, despite it not always being the easiest thing to produce.

•••
Those who know me know I have had a long-standing love affair with shoes. So much so, that my shoe 'closet' was shared with all when it was photographed by Conde Nast for Footwear News. Funny as it may seem, shoes make me happy, as they do so many other women. This fall, I am simply thrilled with the shoes I am seeing. It seems there's the right fit for ever[...]
