I LIVE IN NEW YORK, BUT I WAS BORN BETWEEN A FARM AND A FOREST SOMEWHERE IN THE UNITED STATES. WHEN I WAS YOUNG, I HATED WEARING CLOTHES, BUT I ALWAYS WORE MY CAT THOMAS ON MY HEAD. I GRADUATED FROM RHODE ISLAND SCHOOL OF DESIGN, AND HAVE BEEN WORKING ON MY OWN SINCE. I DON'T BELIEVE THAT FASHION IS THE END GOAL; STORIES, PERSONALITIES, MOODS, IDEALS, AND ATTITUDES ARE. FASHION, WHEN EXECUTED SUCCESSFULLY, COMMUNICATES THESE ATTRIBUTES QUICKLY AND ELOQUENTLY.
