Dear BPR readers,
I can't tell you how pleasant a surprise it was to receive the link about how the "gutter water dress" fared in your reader's poll. I'm absolutely overwhelmed to receive this kind of recognition. Fashion is, indeed, a mercurial business of disparate tastes and inclinations, and I have grown so accustomed to being a designer with selective, marginal appeal. After this poll I should, perhaps, start changing my perspective. There are so many days when we all feel like dirty water in the gutter. Today you gave me the chance to feel like a gown with a train.
thank you again,
Thanks Andrae - we have great love and respect for you!
