Tip of the hat
My mom, Hane Kohn (now Hane Kolm Cornfield) in Prague in 1935 before they fled the Nazi invasion and escaped to Canada.
She's a healthy, vibrant 89 year old 'lady' in the real sense of the world. She loved fashion design, studied fashion in New York city, and began her career as a pattern maker/designer at the age of 60. Forever tolerating my temper tantrums as she fitted me with those gorgeous silk organza dresses. I now have champagne tastes on a beer budget.
Thanks, mom and Happy Mother's Day.
