For -- I love designing hello of creating and when I see somebody.
Walking down the street wearing our clothes they don't like -- my -- -- so exciting.
And the most rewarding thing that to date has this happens to me is I had a letter from a young girl to had been scarred very badly in an accident.
And she wrote to me telling me that this product to our clothing line beyond vintage makes her feel good about herself when she -- -- And really that's what I did us to get self confidence those people that maybe you know maybe not have as much self confidence -- -- Could -- threat.
Right and today it's interesting because -- and you Bennett and stocks and bonds and currencies commodities and commodities and that you know the business but.
If you -- works for other people as well as yourself -- would you go back to working for other people.

Non and that's also -- the on than just -- because I don't follow trends and looking to history.
For my inspiration today -- trend is something that's just new and different and special that's not.
Everywhere so I thought that that was appointed marketplace a lot of yet -- -- -- And then your second one was evoking emotion connecting with your consumers which I can tell you definitely -- idea -- I am very connected to my past I think a lot of people -- even subconsciously.
