102016_lwh_b_michael_image03Congratulations on receiving with the Lighthouse Guild Design Visionary Award earlier this year. How much is philanthropy a part of your life?

102016_lwh_b_michael_image04Thank you! It was an honor receiving the Design Visionary Award from the Lighthouse Guild. I view philanthropy as a way of being a part of the ‘whole’; it connects us to other sectors beyond our own space. Along with my business partner and life partner, Mark-Anthony Edwards, who is co-founder and CEO of b michael AMERICA, we are hands on with causes that promote empowerment and opportunities for young people through education and the arts.

102016_lwh_b_michael_image03What can we expect to see from your Fall collection?

102016_lwh_b_michael_image04The Fall collection consists of rich textures and jewel inspired colors. I also love the shimmer of gold and silver this season, especially for evening. Overall the feeling is luxe with an edge.

102016_lwh_b_michael_image03Any style tips for the season? Is there a trend you can’t get enough of?

102016_lwh_b_michael_image04My style tip for the season is using a b michael AMERICA topper or bolero as a way of mixing up textures and colors. Another big trend this season is off-the-shoulder, in both short and long dresses — it feels glamorous and modern.

102016_lwh_b_michael_image03What inspires you these days?

102016_lwh_b_michael_image04As I’m currently working on my Spring’17 collection, I’m inspired by the idea of artistically mixing elements and shapes to create a single artistic statement.

102016_lwh_b_michael_image03What advice would you give to aspiring fashion designers?

102016_lwh_b_michael_image04The opportunity for aspiring fashion designers is to present an authentic point of view in contrast to the mega-brands. There will always be a need for something special.
