Did you guys catch Dolce & Gabbana's tribute to motherhood with their A/W 15/16 collection at Milan fashion week? JBH loved the pics of model mums toting their babies, whimsical childlike prints, and mini designer styles that flooded me with my own personal memories of my mom and I wearing matching velvet dresses and posing for 80's glamour shots. Among the numerous life lessons you have taught me, thank you mom for teaching me style and confidence. Enjoy the photo highlights.
Growing up in a colorful Caribbean family as a first-generation American gave me an appreciation for different cultures. I gravitate towards things that are eclectic, ethnic, vintage, colorful, and have multiple influences. My training in theatrical costume design satiated my obsession of different time periods and places and gave me a creative outlet through millinery and costume construction. I love hat making because hats are nostalgic yet timeless.
