“In the early days, we would sail from island to island, and anchor off these amazing Caribbean resorts. I would iron all the samples with an old fashioned stove top iron, get all dressed up, and my husband would take me ashore in the dinghy, sample bag in-hand. Once on the dock, I would slip on my glamorous sandals, brush my hair and head up to see the boutique buyers.  It was a great contrast between our simple boating life and the glamorous side of fashion, and I loved it.”
