A new beginning . . .

Finally! random personal thoughts + images from the last 2 years + future . . . It's time to re-publish editorial work which Google could not index or ascribe to me because it was either hidden via Flash-code on my website, or in niche print-on-demand fashion magazines. Initial posts here will be culled from my website or social media, so Google can actually "see it". Future work will come. It's an incredible time of transition. I thank the fashion community for their support & encouragement! Onward!RGerst_West13_14
