Inspiration Through Travel

Recently I traveled to Thailand, Taiwan, and Myanmar (formerly Burma).  I went to a tailor and a seamstress in Bangkok in order to have a suit and two blazers custom made, know...big boob problems resulted in me not having properly fitting executive attire.  I also splurged on pearls, jade jewelry, and silk because they are much cheaper in Thailand compared to the USA.  In Myanmar, I immediately notice that both men and women wear a long skirt called a longyi.  Some are made of cotton with solid colors while others have sophisticated embroidery on fancier fabric.  I fell in love with longyis and had one made at the Bogyoke Aung San Market in Yangon (see photo).  I find inspiration in culturally specific fashions and plan on working with designers from all over the world in the near future.  More to come...
