Expressing her joy in being a part of this inclusive line, the creator stated on Instagram, What an unreal experience.

The whole team was SO warm, so inviting! I felt like I [sic] belonged there. And the energy in that room was unbelievable

If we see the change, we believe in the change and this is a change. “
