You know, this experience has reaffirmed
what I want to do.
Use what I love and do it in a way
that is a little bit more conscious.
It's a pleasure.
It's been so much fun working with Phillip.
The thing I love about working with Phillip
is him as a person.
He's one of the kindest, wisest humans of all time.
The theme of the show is stop and smell the flowers.
And my thought was, well, there are artists
that work with flowers, but I work with earth,
and if you'd be at all interested in dealing with tons
of toxin-free organic soil and I said
We'll have to repurpose it so it's all going out
to community gardens in and around the area.
I hope we can get more of these earth mountains
for our house that we're building.
I was like, okay, so I gotta plant some flowers now.
And I literally had to construct the collection
thinking that these are the flowers.
I love the kimono with the black flowers on it.
That was my favorite piece in the show.
It was a lovely show.
I like the nice, puffy jackets.
I love the shape of those.
It was everything that I hoped it would be and more.
I think I want to wear every single one of the pieces.
That show was great.
It was lovely. I loved it.
It was everything in one. It was perfect.
I'm excited about this idea of giving back to the earth.
[Phillip] I said No one can throw away anything.
I'm going to take all those scraps and remake flowers
and put on the clothes.
That's what you saw,
all those flowers are actually discards.
He's the type of person who will give you the best advice.
Not bullshitty advice, but for real.
You know, it's not about preaching anything,
but more about preaching to yourself,
what's right for you and your path.
