Another field trip! Have you ever been to the Metropolitan Museum of Art before? Were you overwhelmed?
I had just been to New York and the Met a month prior. As soon as I saw where we were I thought we were going to the Poiret exhibit. I was very happy about that. My prom dress was actually inspired by my earlier visit to the Met and Poiret.

What drew you to the painting of the peacocks?
The sheer beauty of it. The colors and the composition are just perfect.

Were you surprised at all by the other designers' chosen inspirations?
No -- not at all.
