Mark Hester
"Clothes shouldn't stop you. They should help you, and they should exemplify what you're going for. They should enhance, they should be what you're doing constantly, they should be your voice, in a sense. They are. It's your non-verbal 'putting everything out there without saying anything.'" Mark Hester

I feel as if I am on an archeological dig uncovering gems who's voices are not being heard and should be. Mark is a graduate of Georgetown University in sociology (he is "fascinated by others"), is a voracious reader of the classics from an early age (Nietzsche, Proust, Freud, Chekhov, and Bronte), a product of a family who moved a lot and as a result, has lived all over the world, and was free enough to rid himself of all technology for a year and live in a tree house. He looks like a character in a Shakespearean play in his romantic blouses, fur capes, velvet two-piece ensembles, and tights. And he is a Renaissance man in his wide-open curiosity for life. Mark was born on "the day of wonder," and says that he refuses to live in a defined box. He is as thoughtful at putting himself "out there" in a "non-verbal" way in his style as he is with his words, while remaining completely unpretentious and a genuine class act.
