What was your first experience at Fashion Week like?
"By 2000 I was participating in New York Fashion Week. I remember being so excited and overwhelmed that I could barely speak during my interviews. It was such a surreal experience, all the cameras, editors, lights. It was amazing seeing all of my hard work."
What is your most memorable Fashion Week moment?
"In 1995 I was in Paris and a friend invited me to the Christian Dior show when Gianfranco Ferre was designing for the house. This was before I started my line, and I really just remember being so inspired by the Parisian culture and everyone who was attending the show."
How do you plan to recover from Fashion Week?
"I'll definitely treat myself to a massage and hopefully a vacation."
