I was very lucky to be very, very successful before I was 30. I mean, that 28. So But that doesn't mean life doesn't go. You go success up, up, up, up You know, you go up and then you go down and you go up and you go down. And what I think is also very important for people to know is sometimes when the world things you are up, you yourself know that you having difficulties and the same way when people think, Oh, she's old school. I mean, you know, old story. That may not be true either, because you know that you are planning and the whole point about speaking when you are. The good thing about being successful is one you could pay your bills and to you have a voice. And when you have a voice, it's your duty. And it's your privilege to use your voice, your experience, your knowledge in order to help others to have a voice. You, for the last several years you've made mentoring of women are real priority not just individually, but really as an industry. When you start out in the fashion history, it was still quite male, dominated in some areas. It still is today. Were there women in positions of power to mentor you? Well, Diana Vreeland, who was the editor in chief, is a woman who really helped me. And, yes, there were lots of women to help me and yes, yes, but it was very funny because, you know, I never knew what I wanted to do. But I knew I wanted to become a woman in charge. I became a woman in charge because of a little dress. So the more confident I would be, the more I would go around and sell my little dresses to people around. So I was actually selling my confidence. My my growing confidence is something that I was sharing. And it was a time of liberation of women blah, blah, blah and the dress who was easy. It was an easy little dress that somehow the guy you went out with lights and his mother didn't mind, you know, it was sexy enough and proper enough. It was good enough to go to work, and to so it it just field a lot of things people say, Oh, I created the dress. Well, the truth is, the dress created me
