My daily ritual includes …
I’m an early riser and like spending three hours in the morning with myself to prepare for the day.
I am grateful for...

Peaceful.
If I could walk someone else’s path, it would have to be ...
I’ve always walked my own path, and I wouldn’t change anything.
My favorite term of endearment is…
The opposite of a term of endearment. My family’s method of giving love and endearment is to say the opposite or make fun.
The easiest way to connect with others is …
Face-to-face. I’m a big proponent of face-to-face communication in this digital world; it’s just more direct than volleying back and forth over emails.
The biggest misconception about fashion is …
That it’s about vanity as opposed to personal empowerment and individual expression.
When I think sustainability, I imagine …

My biggest truth is …
Honesty. The way one conducts business and themselves personally reflects one’s character.
My golden rule is …
There are no rules.
My personal passion is…
Tennis. It’s like my yoga, but more aggressive and energetic.
One cause I wish everyone knew about…
Women undergoing chemotherapy and the beautification and empowerment of them through hats.
My favorite way to give includes...
“Feeding others. I love making food in big batches for people to eat.”
