Photographing this collection was truly an expression of love from all who participated. My dear friend Rex and his husband Brian traveled from Washington D.C. to Brooklyn to shoot the bags. Jeannie & Brian showed love when they agreed to model for me. And my girl, Eloria, who is a celebrity makeup artist, lovingly painted the faces of the beautiful people who modeled this collection. I am so grateful to all of them.
Love means different things to different people. For me, it means extending kindness, understanding, grace, and thoughtfulness to everybody, including people we don't know. But I also believe that each of us deserves that in return. The world is a crazy place right now, but if we can try to live our lives by being kind to one another, maybe we can truly experience LOVE.
