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.
“There is no passion to be found playing small – in settling for a life that is less than the one you are capable of living.”
– Nelson Mandela Former President of South Africa

When you dream more, learn more, care more, what do you wish to be in your future?
Success is built by implementing that wish with heart and hard work. Just like Dolly did.
I dream about creating a better world where everyone gets to nurture their passions, talents, and dreams. Imagine how beautiful that society will be! I believe this can be achieved, too–by collaboration, innovation and determination.
Please let me know if we can innovate and work hard towards that better world together.
