I’m thrilled to again be a judge for the Rock the Runway Fashion Show — I had a terrific time last year! Also, I deeply appreciate creativity. Fashion is a great art form, and it’s a privilege to watch up-close as people take chances, put themselves out there and reveal something of themselves through their designs.
