One highlight is being globally recognized for my superb contribution to the global fashion industry.

7. What is your favorite piece that you’ve designed so far (photo’s please!), and what is so intriguing about it?

During my NYFW fittings, I had the honor of meeting a model that inspired me, and I didn’t think any of the garments were suitable for her energy. So, overnight, I created this show stopping bright yellow gown that still is the talk of the town.

When Farrierbell Couture collections are sold in major retail stores worldwide, then I would have achieved the ultimate milestone.
