I think the fact you can say so much with so little appeals to me. Mini works of art forming little punctuation marks takes an outfit and fashion to a new level. An earring can change a whole look - especially where in the ear its worn. I managed to get a job at erickson beamon years ago - my first job making a whole bunch of jewellery for Julien Macdonalds London fashion week show in 98/99 - first month in london in the front row with Anna Wintour with a Alek Wek et al strolling down the ramp - I was sold! It’s been non-stop since then.

I live in a pretty cool city that covers most of my lusts. but new york is just on another level in terms of what goes, how much, and sans limits. its the fat boy’s lunchbox of possibility.
