    Great stuff. I would love to hear the story of how they started, any details? I think you last statment is a little misleading, it takes alot more than creative vision to make it to those stores and get the press they have, perhaps connections? Who knows?

    Honestly you can get into those stores (the fashion leaders) with just creativity. Stores like Barneys do hunt for their kind of talent. The press is always looking for something interesting to shoot.
    It is the next level of stores ,like Saks that is more cautious, where connections help. Only one of them worked in fashion but I’m not aware of any highly important connections.
