I love to see and feel emotional sparkle. Seeing my husband and daughter sparkling together above makes me sparkle too. So does connecting with others who are passionate about their work. Like designer Jason Wu:
Thanks to A Better Chicago, I enjoyed the Jason Wu fashion show at the Art Institute and dinner with the designer and others afterwards. Wu skyrocketed to fame when Michelle Obama wore his gown to her husband’s first inauguration. The first lady’s only design parameter was, “It has to sparkle.”
Fashion design makes Skatie sparkle too. She is already Creative Director of the Cashmere By Tania fashion house in London. Tania is the second from the left below. I will forever be her fan and friend because of the opportunity and support she gives Skatie. Tania is great fun to be with too!
Jason’s advice to Skatie was “Go for it! Start designing your dreams now.” His advice to me – nurture her fashion sparkle – of course.
