One of the best thing about having a shop beside doing what I love is to meet like minded people. Evangelina and Miles are one of the loveliest individuals that I ever met. They are sweet, kind, and so wonderful. I have been very lucky to have met so many amazing friends through the shop. Also, this season my mother got to be a part of all the shows. She has been my inspiration, my rock, and my biggest fan. Without her and my father, there won’t be IDOM. I count my blessings daily of how fortunate I am to be living this good life. There are always lots of struggles, but also lots of joy as well.
Miles, Evangelina, and my mother Chintana. Evangelina is wearing a Sea Urchin dress that was worn at her reception party for her wedding. My mother is wearing a Maura dress. They were cheering for me at Portland Fashion Week. I was so happy to see all the friendly faces there. And thank you to my sweet friends Caitlin and Salwa for making it all happened back stage. Stay dry today. It is gray and rainy in the P town. Ta, ta.
