What was your first experience at Fashion Week like?
"I showed my first collection at Michaelson studio. The experience was so surreal and a dream come true for me! A lot of my guests started crying and seeing them cry made me get teary too."
What is your most memorable Fashion Week moment?
"One of my dresses came back all ruined right before the Fall 2011 show. I had to throw together a last-minute look using one of the t-shirts off my back — literally. It ended up coming together really well and gave a real borrowed-from-the-boys aesthetic."
How do you plan to recover from Fashion Week?
"After the shows, I find myself hanging out a lot in the showroom. I like to spend time with my store owners and editors I know. Observing them react to the collection and hearing their thoughts gets my mind going all over again."
