fashion week it's a concept that resonates with customers. personally and makes me very happy it's a way for people to express themselves and also for me so it makes me have it to see all these different clothes and different styles that they put out there i just enjoy dressing up really nice i just think it makes me feel good when i look good as i think fashion makes. because it's about colors it's expression on people you know that what you wear is the kind of making a signal and i think it has a huge impact on how we approach and look at people it makes you happy because it's a way to express yourself and a week to show the world who you are and there's no wrong way of doing it it's just showing your personal style i think question can also it can also make you
