    This is really exciting! I absolutely love that he considers women out of the industry norm! I will definetly follow his work and wish him the best as a designer also. The thought of having a possible opportunity to participate in Fashion Week with him, literally brings tears of joy! I love taking pics but runway is where my heart is! This is great news! I can’t even say thanks enough to the wonderful opportunities Ann Lauren & Bella Petite present. I’m so happy that I’ve discovered and became apart of Bella Petite!
