Tell us about your first collection. How quickly did you come up with the design for five different coats? Why this new coat, now?
What is your design process like? Do you gather images, sketch, play around with fabric?
Who are your style inspirations? Whose designers’ clothes would fill your dream closet, or your real closet?
Your final designed product seems very disciplined –beautiful and feminine, but disciplined. Tell us about that.
You were inspired by a wonderful treasure your great-grandmother once owned. At what point in your life did encounter this and how did it influence you?
Any coats for men on the horizon? Or plans for clothing other than coats? And just for fun...tell us about your perfect day in rainy Portland.
