  1. I am a friend of Tara's and noticed Kelsey in a photo of her NYtimes FW coverage, thought you might like to it.

    Also, if you're interested, the collection I co-design each season was covered on this FW.

    I try to follow MN fashion as much as I can, so thank you for keeping me informed Jahna! xclaire
