  1. I am so touched by the work of this artist I have never heard of - during her life time. I am sorry ahe passed away from cancer. Being a designer myself, I wonder about the legacy we leave behind, hours of handy work, our love put into garments made to adorn another.
    Betty David must have been a gutsy woman, knowing about tradition and skills, riding the extra miles in craftsmenship and originality.
    i am inspired by this woman's work to complete my live's work.
