My Thanksgiving was great! Thanks!! Did you get to finish the coat you were working on during the Holiday? I always loved to design, my mom was a seamstress back in Brazil. I used to used the left over fabric to make dresses for my Barbie doll. I haven't been to Chicago yet, but it is in my list of cities I would like to introduce my clothing line. If you know any boutique that would be interested in adding a new clothing line to their portfolio, let me know. Also, I would be happy to take a look at your work. Do you have a blog where you post pictures? And , when do you do the Latino Fashion week? Is it at the same time we have it in NY?
Talk to you soon
