When did you know you were destined to be a designer?
When I put myself in charge of creating a wrapping room for my mom filled with boxes and wrappers and ribbon. Of course I did all the wrapping.
It was predicted that the death of print would be brought about with the emergence of the Internet, that magazines, the news and printed information would migrate to electronic forms. Why do you think that this has or hasn’t happened?
It is happening now. I’m trying to simplify and pair down my life and home and workspace. Digital magazines with images I can sort and bookmark have replaced my tear sheets from actual magazines. Websites like FFFFound and blogs are where I seek inspiration. However, BOOKS are forever. The Kindle will never replace my library and collection of books. I’m currently converting a room at home into a library and reference room. I can’t wait.
Where do you draw the line between graphics, fashion, and art?
There is no line.
What hidden aspects of fashion/design would you like to draw more attention to and why?
The utilitarian and smaller and sometimes overlooked details…zippers, tags, stitching, the lining of a jacket….the surprises and essentials of crafting anything.
A multi-colored pen from Muji and my Oh Boy notebooks.
