With me is my friend, Ann, captured by one of my favorite photographers, her husband, Paul. My hat was designed by a couple of young Fashion Institute of Technology grads who struck out on their own. Whenever I wear that hat, people photograph me with or without my permission. I thought it was because I'm such a knockout. Alas, I found out it was other designers looking to make knockoffs of that hat.
