“Fashion is indicative of our culture, our mood, our personality; it’s a reflection of societal mores and predilections. Fashion is utilitarian in that we all need threads to cover our bodies; but to creatively attack the routine of getting dressed everyday, take risks, and think outside of the box is what fashion means to me.”  -Claire Sulmers
