Advice she’d offer someone entering her profession: “Stay as curious and excited about fashion as you are right now.”

How she’s going green: “Besides recycling and using canvas bags for groceries? I’m a member of a food co-op, I use public transportation almost exclusively, I buy unpackaged food from the farmer’s market…but fashion-wise, I invest in a few designer pieces each season instead of spending a fortune on a million pieces of ‘fast fashion.’”
