This amazing morning was followed by an inspirational, collaborative extended lunch with Amber of Phea Jean at Red Hook Cofee and Tea. We talked about everything fashion, from the Premiere Vision trade show to past work to current work and future ideas. Such stimulating discussion led to the creation of a few upcoming fashion events and the development of my handbag collection. It is so great to collaborate with creative people!
