What you may not know is that I have never lost sight of the dream of designing my own womenswear line. I started designing accessories because accessories were what I could afford to produce - and after the cost of fabric, buttons, thread, printer paper for tags, string, pins, building this website, renting a market table, suitcase for hauling my wares, cabs to and fro with that big suitcase, etc., I wondered how in the world I was ever going to get ahead. As a perfectionist, I knew that the womenswear collection I dreamed of would only happen if the time and the resources were right. In walks the Fashion Star opportunity.
I am so grateful to have the chance to design to my heart's content on NBC's Fashion Star, however, I will always pay homage to that original unisex tie I created, because for me, it is the source of inspiration for all that I design - the perfect masculine + feminine combination.
Please join me as CS+T takes the next step, starting March 13th at 9:30 EST on NBC. It's your journey, too, as I suspect if you are reading this, you helped me get here one way or another. Thank you. And thank you for your continued support.
