The Children's Hour

A few months ago, as I spent some time making feather headdresses for one Peter Pan obsessed 4 year old, I thought to myself, "I could do this all day."

A few days ago, a singer in a red dress asked me if I work as a stylist.

A few weeks ago, I read this quote from Anna Wintour's introduction to Stylist: The Interpreters of Fashion, a book I had dismissed, which I now covet: "One thing that struck me is the degree to which the fashion editor's visual perspective is governed by his or her earliest years. The gardens, the schools, the neighbors, the light - all are signifiers that come back again and again in the work of the grown child."
