What did you think when Tim brought you into the Hershey store in Times Sq.?
I felt immediately that this was an opportunity to be really creative. Plus, I love candy.

Have you ever worked with such "fabric" before?
I have never made clothing for humans out of food but when I was 17, I made a collection out of fruits and vegetables which were modeled by Barbie. The work was extremely tedious and would wilt after about 7-8 hours, so I would photograph the work just before time would run out. This collection scored me a 5 (out of 5) on my AP art exam, helped me get into Parsons, and was featured in Newsdays "from linen to lettuce".
