In 2012, I had an epiphany. The lyrics from a song from my past invaded my consciousness out of nowhere. That song was the J5 "ABC" song at that moment. It solidified the reason for Michael Jackson and my meeting when he was 12 or 13 years old. MJ admired a necklace I'd made and was wearing and inquired "where did you get that?" pointing to my necklace I replied I made it, MJ responded, "I want one!" A song inspired design Teachable Clothing®™. A culmination of my past experiences and love for fashion and design. In the field that I'd worked in for some decades, the music industry. I was privileged to work with some of the most significant recording artists of my generation. As a stylist for Donna Summer, I designed and make her blue suede dress for her "Love Is In Control" album cover, Jennifer Holliday, Bob Dylan, Lionel Richie, and Prince. As a visual communication designer for Diane Warren, Berry Gordy, Michael Jackson, I designed the forenamed artist's Billboard magazine ads. I also like to refer to Teachable Clothing®™ as an innovative, altruistic action that bettering our world and the leaders of tomorrow and our future. A new generation of influencers, movers, and shakers our children and reclaim America number one position in education once again.
