If you have read the article called Why Ties, you will know that one day, out of the blue, an acquaintance of mine had wanted me to get him a job as a fashion designer because he was closing a design school he managed. At that time, I was hosting fashion shows to raise money for abused dogs and I told him that although I knew a lot of models, the same could not be said about designers. I did, however, propose that we work together and create a tie collection. He had made a number of promises, all of which he backed out of two weeks later.
