I was so honored to be interviewed by Anu Prestonia about my design process. I've known Anu for several years and have made a few garments for her, including her Wedding Dress and 40th celebration honors.
This is so exciting Into My Life is going to be at the Camden International Film Festival, September 13 - 16 2018. Who would have thought a box of film....no wait in 1962, my Mother never would have thought her interest in film would have traveled so far and met with so many great opportunities.
This is a great honor to be in collaboration with Grace, Ivana, and Sarah, and and and Union Docs.....PS a BIG shout out to Dijifi who I began converting the film to digital formats....it has been an extraordinary experience, that I am so grateful for.
My Aunt Nona's little Geoffrey Beene gold beaded dress is now on display at the Museum of the City of New York. The exhibition is Mod New York, Fashion Takes a Trip.....and you can bop and bounce through the exhibit listening to the sound track of the time. The exhibit features designers Geoffrey Beene, Ruby Bailey, Pauline Trigére, and more.

Delivering the Dress
Once Upon a time, we thought we ruled the world. We were talented, had ideas, and little to NO money....but that didn't stop us. In 1996 4 designers got together and we decided to put on a fashion show a Brooklyn, Bedford Stuyvesant backyard... We invited everyone, via word of mouth and postcards. Our friends and family came and supported us......
