    What inspires you? When you’ve lived the majority of your adult life and you look back, what was the core style inspiration that has inspired your style throughout your adult life?

     

    I can tell you mine. It comes with a back story to help paint a picture. As a daughter of Southern European immigrants - my mother grew up on a lush steep countryside in Southern Europe impoverished. Her family farmed the rugged landscape to feed their family of 10 and embroidered linens to sell to tourists. Each embroidered piece would get them an equivalent to 1-4 dollars and would take days to complete. Butter, olives and meat were luxuries only reserved for Christmas. And yet they made the best of everything given to them.
