Backstage before the show, we asked the design a few insider questions about the collection and here is what happened:

HL: How does your design process work, from start to finish?
JS: Well I’m leaving the day after the show to go to Paris, I go to Premiere Vision, the big fabric show and start selecting my fabrics and that’s how it all begins.

HL: What is your favorite part of designing?
JS: All of it, I love all of it, from beginning to the end. I love working with the fabrics, developing m own fabrics, working on designing the silhouettes, and I love when it all comes to life. When the collection all comes together and the show ends, that is my favorite part.
