  10. Special birthday shoutout to one half of Pat n Kat, and a good friend of mine. I am so glad that we were able to meet, talk, dream and work together. I hadn’t met someone who had the same sentiments on fashion as we do, and it’s been a pleasure to collaborate with your talent and style. You have taught me so much and hope we get to work together soon!
