When I was very young, I saw photographs and videos of Jacqueline Kennedy and thought she was the most beautiful woman in the world. I don't think it was her actual physical appearance but rather her clothing and demeanor that attracted me. As an adult, what always caught my attention was the fact that she was not only an editor but also contributed to the arts and to the preservation of historic architecture. When I began working full-time I looked for classic clothing like hers and was accepted into fashion design utilizing similar shapes and styles. though I decided to focus on the visual arts instead. I still look to her as an icon for formal occasions.
