Thoughts on the earliest moment I remember wanting to be a fashion designer...
When I was 5, I cut holes in my mothers silk and lace pillow cases to make really amateurish tunic dresses for myself and my younger sister.
They where really terribly made. I forced my sister to wear them everywhere. Eventually my mother found out and I got spanked. I was hooked.
There was never anything else I wanted to be except a fashion designer. -Heather
