    I have to be a little discrete about the reseach; it has to do with PATRIOT Act Compliance. I'm afraid it won't take me to Armenia.

    I can't believe Turkey closed the border with Armenia because of Armenia's demand for recognition of the genocide. :angry:

    my mentor was an armenian, so I grew up around a lot of armenian cultural influences. :heart: it's fantastic to see an armenian designer. her work is very unique - spiderwebb-y. :ninja: :) thanks mrrene!

    Here's an article on her in LA Weekly issue of May 10, 2002.

    No two pieces of hers are the same :shock:.

    That's something i really appreciate about designers and i don't think enough do it. I hate seeing the same design just in slightly different shape repeated on runway or elsewhere. I like to see totally different pieces even if they are all from the same theme.
