Happy Mother’s Day
My mother Patricia comes to New York to help with every fashion show, which is appropriate because she was such a huge influence on my style —- a lot of the feminine details in my clothes, such as eyelet lace, pintucks - I learned from her. She made most of my family’s clothing (including the jumbo gingham dress my sister and I are wearing above) She’s a homemaker — in the very best sense of that wonderful word. After all, a home is what we need the most.
She singlehandedly renovated our house including tearing down walls. And with such style—we were the classic 70’s style with the fondue set, macrame, sheepskin rugs— until the 80’s when it changed to the smoky glass coffee table and flotaki rugs. My mother never says that something can’t be done — she’s always positive and hardworking and loves to create.
