Going into 32 years of creating headwear I’m reminded of my 3 mentors. While doing life each of them was divinely orchestrated to pause, grab me & take me on this creative journey. As each chapter was fulfilled these 3 systematically flowed as the seasons we once knew. I’m grateful for the established foundation shared which has provided longevity & rebuilding strength. 🙏🏽 “Your gift is not your own, but to be shared.” ~Otis Damón
