I had the honor of meeting and speaking to this beautiful Queen of fashion at Miami Fashion week 2013 and I discovered that she is not stuffy, and dismissive like some accomplished designers, but was in fact very approachable, down to earth, and eager to make her self available to budding fashionistas 😉
