Everything I have ever done is my work…

I was born in Amsterdam, made clothes for myself, made satin pants for friends in bands, carved and sold leather belts and hippy-ish jewelry, became a model, lived in Paris, did shows for Yves Saint Laurent, lived in Australia, was a Cosmo cover girl, lived in London, worked for Vogue and Bazaar, went to the Royal College of Art to study fashion, had my own post punk collection called Giraf, held runway shows during fashion week, closed Giraf in a UK recession, moved to New York, worked for Calvin Klein as Sr. design director, launched CK and worked with Kate Moss and Mark Wahlberg in the ads, burned out, left Calvin, had my own collection in Japan, met my husband, moved to Princeton where he taught, converted an old terra cotta factory into our loft home, had my first daughter, started a children's wear collection, had twin daughters, closed the children's wear collection, went freelance and worked for Ralph, Dim, Go Silk and Pantone, became less and less interested in fashion, moved to rural Upper Delaware area of Pennsylvania, designed books with my husband, wrote a novel, found plastic on the beach in Eleuthera, fell in love with beach plastic, made jewelry, started Plastic is Forever, moved to Miami. Now spend my time designing, working as anti beach plastic pollution activist and teaching kids locally and in the Bahamas beach plastic workshops.
