With Cotton’s Road to the Runway getting closer and closer to finding our regional winners, this new Florida “home.” tee couldn’t have come at a better time. In just one month, we’ll be bringing one winner from each region to South Beach for Cotton’s 24 Hour Runway Show. Though I’m representing the Northeast region, I will always identify as a Floridian. I was born and raised there, and my family still lives there…and if winter has taught me anything, it’s that my Florida blood was never meant to withstand it. Plus, whenever you meet anyone in NYC, the first thing most people ask is, “Where are you from?” Most of us are transplants, who sought out this city for all of its wonder. Save for my friend Helena of Brooklyn Blonde (born and bred in NYC), most of my New York friends are from anywhere but here. They say you can’t call yourself a New Yorker until you’ve been here for ten years; I’ve been here for six, so I’m still a Floridian. Ask me again in four more years.
