"We were lucky to have discovered our creativity and passion together, but to experience loss in the same exact way strengthened our bond. We were able to support each other in a way that forced us to grow and build each other up."
"For me, personal style is about more than just clothes, it’s about empowerment. I know when I wake up in the morning, make my bed, and put on something I feel confident in that it’s going to be a good day."
"The clothes I make are handmade, but the fact is all the clothes we buy are handmade by someone. Maybe that someone is a mother in Bangladesh earning only three dollars a week, and that’s why your shirt is able to cost twenty bucks. I didn’t really understand the value of all the work it takes to craft well-made clothing until I began doing it myself."
