I think probably admiring the binding on a blue baby blanket . . . on a fleece blanket with a blue trim with the little sort of grided stitch on the edge was sort of my first experience with fashion. Well it was like a visceral sensuality. It was protection. It was my baby blanket. So it’s that . . . it’s that form of protection and expression, and drape and movement. My father also was painting photo realist paintings with fabric. So the idea of drape and something that sort of becomes 2-D from 3-D was sort of a big influence in growing up.
