Other than some commitments with clients, I was able to take the month of August off to spend time with my kids, go on holiday and renovate my bathroom. Well, I didn’t actually renovate, but I was a pretty good supervisor. Now that I’m back at it and the weather has cooled off, it’s time to start talking Fall trends.
