She is a major personality and a leader in the fashion industry across the world. She is representing the ‘Bible of Fashion’ in the US and she makes sure that most American designers with talent and potential will find their way in the market and an outlet for expression. She is disciplined, hard-working, determined, decisive, and for that matter hugely-discussed as a woman with a great ‘say’ in the world of fashion. She has inspired documentaries, films, books, endless articles, and social media posts. Above all, she is my ultimate idol; a lady who has immense respect for the business aspect of fashion and a great sense of style. In her own absolute way, she knows fashion!
