He promotes the genre through his role as artist-in-residence for Dior Beauty, as a professor at FIT, and as an author, speaker, and working artist.

Review:

“Seriously, there is a ton of good stuff in this book. Designers were asked questions on topics ranging from career advice to shopping tips, and the answers run the gamut from hilarious to sweet.” (Glamour.com)

“With designers revealing everything from their favorite muses (Rachel’s are Jane Birkin and Brigitte Bardot), to their top shopping destinations, this is sure to be the fashion-lover’s gift this summer. We recommend stocking up on a few copies for graduation and hostess gifts.” (The Zoe Report)
