What did you think when the models arrived on the runway?
I was quite intrigued, and pretty certain we were to design collaboratively with the women presented before us. These models' accomplishments, and the level of respect and pride each of them deserves was, and is, humbling.

What is your take on designing for what is referred to as "The Everyday Woman?"
I thoroughly enjoy working with what fashion calls "the real woman." After all, are not all women, including those in the industry, "real?" Almost one half to two thirds of my clientele are what are called "everyday women," albeit amazing everyday women. I thoroughly delighted in the collaborative couture process with these clients, and looked forward to getting to know and work with Tracy.
