You know, this experience has reaffirmed
00:08
what I want to do.
00:09
Use what I love and do it in a way
00:11
that is a little bit more conscious.
00:13
It's a pleasure.
00:14
It's been so much fun working with Phillip.
00:17
The thing I love about working with Phillip
00:18
is him as a person.
00:20
He's one of the kindest, wisest humans of all time.
00:23
The theme of the show is stop and smell the flowers.
00:26
And my thought was, well, there are artists
00:27
that work with flowers, but I work with earth,
00:30
and if you'd be at all interested in dealing with tons
00:34
of toxin-free organic soil and I said
00:38
We'll have to repurpose it so it's all going out
00:40
to community gardens in and around the area.
00:43
I hope we can get more of these earth mountains
00:46
for our house that we're building.
00:49
I was like, okay, so I gotta plant some flowers now.
00:51
And I literally had to construct the collection
00:55
thinking that these are the flowers.
00:56
I love the kimono with the black flowers on it.
01:00
That was my favorite piece in the show.
01:02
It was a lovely show.
01:04
I like the nice, puffy jackets.
01:05
I love the shape of those.
01:07
It was everything that I hoped it would be and more.
01:10
I think I want to wear every single one of the pieces.
01:13
That show was great.
01:14
It was lovely. I loved it.
01:16
It was everything in one. It was perfect.
01:19
I'm excited about this idea of giving back to the earth.
01:23
[Phillip] I said No one can throw away anything.
01:25
I'm going to take all those scraps and remake flowers
01:27
and put on the clothes.
01:28
That's what you saw,
01:29
all those flowers are actually discards.
01:31
He's the type of person who will give you the best advice.
01:33
Not bullshitty advice, but for real.
01:36
You know, it's not about preaching anything,
01:38
but more about preaching to yourself,
01:41
what's right for you and your path.
