Who is AnnaMontee?

They came of age in the 40s, best friends then; later, my maternal and paternal grandmothers, Anna and Montee. I loved to observe their clothing styles—colorful fabrics, patterns, and layers that accentuated but never exploited their plump curves. These women embodied playful class and sass. When I began to sketch fashions, their styles enchanted my imagination. They became my inspiration.
