The Air 

The first time I passed Linda Rodin on 18th and 7th Ave still remains so vivid in my memory. She was wearing a Canadian tuxedo, walking her grey standard poodle I know now as Winky, and wearing round Miu Miu sunglasses. We both were wearing the same shades, and I remember us both stopping for a second to look at each other. It was a strange moment because I had no idea who she was, but her energy and outfit were so strong, that I knew she must have an interesting story. We smiled at each other, and kept walking. The Commons in Chelsea was across the street from my studio apartment, so I would go there before meetings to grab coffee, and chat with the owners. Linda and I would frequently pass each other on the street. I remember thinking that she was such a soul, her beauty and grace were undeniable, and without knowing much about her, she became an unknown muse, looking forward to the next time we would pass each other, and exchange the knowing fashion smiles.  In recent months Linda Rodin has become the It woman on graceful aging and beauty, as the founder of Rodin Cosmetics, (sold on Net-a-porter.com and at other luxury retailers). Wanting to know more and more about her, I began researching her back story, to find that she has lived many lives as a past magazine editor, stylist, model, and store owner to name a few. This Air speaks to inspiration on so many levels. I see myself in Linda, having a similar past in fashion, and continuing to grow myself on so many different fronts of the industry. She is a true inspiration of style and age, and will continue to be someone that I look to for inspiration for life in this moment and the future.xxxC
