Who has inspired you in your life and why?

My mother inspires me constantly. She is a wise, generous and compassionate person who has the impressive ability to see the good in every one.


How did you turn your initial intuition and vision into reality?

I followed the wise words and encouragement of close friends who understood my love for fashion. They held the missing pieces to my puzzle and once I recognized that, I put it all together, and here I am today.

President of a bank or a Chinese food chef.
