I was in need of a dose of greenery. This two-piece set is vintage from Artists Fleas, and the sweater vest was gifted to me from the wardrobe of one of my mother’s friends.

I’ve been so thrilled to see a larger focus on sustainability this fashion week. It’s made me feel very hopeful about the future of the industry.

I wanted to support Maryam today. I have been a fan of hers for a long time and got invited to the show and she gave me this beautiful dress.

I have never worn anything quite like this, the color and the playfulness. I feel really cool in it and I really like the idea of being a clown.

NYFW is kind of full of clowns so I am a clown now, too!”

Traveling for work, I see a lot of great style in very different places. I think everywhere I go I bring a little something back with me, whether it’s a new piece of clothing or a different way to wear an old one.

The only trick to pulling off a crazy outfit is just believing you are.”

I suppose the displeasure (or, at a minimum, boredom) I feel at looking at my unclothed body and unpainted face when I wake is inspiration enough to take action — that is to say, to hurl a bunch of color/pattern/texture/shine at the ‘problem.

’ I recognize that my self-deprecation doesn’t change the fact that I am citing MYSELF as my inspiration. My style philosophy: Acquire and wear clothes that you can imagine yourself wearing as a 70-year-old, or that you wish you had when you were half your age.

 A ‘timeless’ wardrobe is within reach, even for the maximalists among us.”

Textiles and fits inspire my style. They don’t make it like they used to — vintage is a way of life.

I dress organically to my mood and I approach each outfit as if one would approach a sculpture. It’s about the shape and textile of the garment.
