My daughter Amanda Henderson is an acclaimed knitwear designer, a Cum Laude graduate of the prestigious Fashion Institute of Technology in New York City. She’s won numerous awards and done work for major fashion brands, including Free People, Urban Outfitters , Victor Alfaro, Elizabeth & James, R13, La Garconne, Fleur Du Mal, Gary Graham, Hellessy, Erin Fetherston Alejandra Alonso Rojas, Tanya Taylor, Kate Spade, 3.1 Phillip Lim and Zac Posen. Recently she moved back to Long Island from Philadelphia and designed her latest collection called Outerlands with the local environment as inspiration. I was privileged to photograph it with her. We went to Cupsogue Beach and also to Democrat Point in Fire Island National Seashore on beautiful winter’s days. We were both pleased with the results and even more so when the Italian fashion magazine Maglieria Italiana picked up on it and reached out to her. They’ve just given her a featured story in their current issue.
