“We must all join forces and take action, in order to stand up against a common enemy. Though we are being forced to remain physically distant, we have never been closer to one another as we are today mentally & emotionally – these are the strengths that will aid in getting through this in unity and strength”.
“Fashion is the armor to survive the reality of everyday life.” —Bill Cunningham.
