I have loved Audrey Hepburn for as long as I can remember, and even more as she became more involved in humanitarian efforts. During the Second World War she was a courier for the Dutch resistance and assisted with fundraising. She spoke several languages, including English, Dutch, German, French, Italian, and Spanish. I remember watching 'My Fair Lady' when I was really young and I absolutely adored her as Eliza Doolittle and when I read George Bernard Shaw's 'Pygmalian' in Jr High School on which the musical was based, I had to watch it again and again. As my daughters grew I shared my love of all things Audrey, including her wardrobe which inspired my desire to study fashion and though I didn't continue on to study fashion in Toronto as I had initially planned, I did design and sew clothing for myself and my daughters for many years. She was a classic beauty in every way.
