Christine’s Story

“As a kid I had a very nomadic lifestyle, having lived in several countries around the world, mostly due to my parents’ jobs. It’s an experience for which I’m eternally grateful. While it benefited me with a rich exposure to other cultures, it left cracks in my foundation that others could not see.

The emotional and psychological impact of uprooting and rerooting myself in five different countries before the age of 20 meant I had no sense of home or place in the outer world and my internal world felt incredibly malleable.

I had no sense of home or place

As a result, I struggled to establish myself in a career, a community, and an identity. Music was the one constant companion that’s managed to stick with me through the rapid series of tectonic life shifts I’d gotten used to. Playing music was something I loved since I was a small child, before all of the moving around began. After the globetrotting started, I clung to it like a life raft because it was the only thing I had that gave me a sense of personal foundation.

I moved to Los Angeles after school and spent three years struggling to break in to the industry. That was when I found myself in the worst job market in recent memory. During that time I had no friends, no money, no life really. The cumulative stress those years of struggle in LA took a debilitating toll on my health, which had a ripple-effect on my life for several years after. Saddled with student loan debt, and my health issues made finding work that would pay the bills and shrink my debt that much harder.

During that time I had no friends, no money, no life really

Things took a turn for the better when I finally landed my first entry-level position at an independent record label. The pay was low but I didn’t care. That year, everything started falling into place — I had an exciting job in the only world I felt I belonged, I found several great girlfriends, found a charming studio apartment in a neighborhood I loved and essentially laid the groundwork for a new life I could finally live on my own terms.

I found several great girlfriends, found a charming studio apartment

I also found love, ending up in a great relationship with a man whose presence in my life was a vital source of love and support. By 2018 I was feeling a lust for life I hadn’t felt since I was a teenager. I dove into a forgotten passion, dancing, and started planning trips. I finally felt like I was living and not just surviving.

I also found love, ending up in a great relationship

But that year things started changing too, starting with the breakup of my relationship. I spent that year readjusting to life as single me after six years with my now-ex boyfriend. One rift followed another, and by January of 2019 I learned that my closest friend and confidante was moving away to another country. I felt so alone with no support for what was to come.

Around that same time I remember when I felt the lump in my right breast. At the same time beloved cat Smokey had also become ill — vets were concerned he might have cancer. As we both went to a doctor for a diagnosis of a cyst on the same day I found out he was not sick but my news was not so good. I felt like a bomb about to explode from the shock, and explode I did. But the real knuckle on the gut punch was that I was finally feeling GOOD for the first time in my adult life, and now this.

Around that same time I felt the lump in my right breast

I was ultimately diagnosed with Stage IIIb breast cancer. Since then its been established that I’m going to have a year-long journey fighting this cancer. Treatment is 3-5 months of chemotherapy, followed by surgery, radiation and then five years of hormone therapy.

I’m blessed that I now have insurance, which is helping defray some of the cost, but even with that the medical bills have eaten away more than half of the savings I’ve managed to build, and I’m only two months into a year-long battle. Medical debt is a near-certainty.

I am grateful for the support of the Carol Galvin Foundation.

With your help I hope to avoid backsliding into the downward spiral that poor health and debt can find you in, that I worked long and hard to escape from in the past. I’ll be able to rebuild to a place of vitality once more so that I can give back to all who have given to me.”

With your help I’ll be able to rebuild to a place of vitality once more

Mariko Ichikawa Presentation
Open-to-the-Public / Salon Presentation

205 Hudson St.
New York, NY, 10013

Mariko Ichikawa creates luxurious, one-of-a-kind coats and robes from up-cycled traditional Japanese Kimonos. Born of mixed heritage (her father is Japanese and her mother is Italian- American), the New York City-native, and former Dubai resident, amassed an impressive resume of fashion industry experience prior to starting her brand. With previous roles in buying and merchandising for major department stores in the US and abroad, Mariko’s years of experience have resulted in a deep knowledge of the fashion industry from the inside.

Mariko Ichikawa founded her namesake line with the goal of re-purposing traditional Japanese kimonos for modern day wear. Once a kimono has been re-designed into a modern silhouette, she works with artisans in India to compliment the individual fabric of each kimono with couture embroidery techniques. By doing so, a stain or hole in the fabric is not viewed as a flaw, but as an opportunity to honor the tradition of embroidery. In the end, a kimono from Mariko Ichikawa is a one-of-a-kind object, steeped in heritage and evolved from tradition, yet made for today.

JESSICA CHANG STUDIO

Jessica is a Taiwanese, comfort-conscious couture womenswear designer who never fails in being genuine and authentic with everything she generates. Jessica Chang Studio aims to absorb all that is inspiring and beautiful from nature and inject them into the tangible, wearable garments so that we can all experience and be a part of nature’s majesty. The collection showcases a mix of bold and mystifying colors, forms, and curves — silhouettes, familiar to the subconscious yet exciting to the visuals — textures are alive and full of movement. This homage to nature combined with Jessica’s innate design aesthetic takes a runway show to church, the elegance, the opulence, and the reverence.

ANYA HABER

Anya Haber is a multi-disciplinary designer whose aesthetic focuses on the intersection of art and science particularly when it comes to the use of unusual materials. Many of her textiles are handmade, whether it’s weaving with non-traditional textiles to create volume or molded silicone and liquid rubbers. She also works with technology, 3d printing, and coding garments to move in reaction to sensory stimuli. Much of her work is inspired by scientific processes. Her collections are expressive and many of her designs are one-of-a-kind showpieces.

Z’RREYAH

Z’rreyah Elese Evolve is a Couture/Pret-a-Porter Designer, Brand Director, and Fashion Curator. Also known as, Thee Contributor, where she has worked for celebrities and companies such as Mayowa Nicholas, Angela Simmons, Cardi B, Hennessy Carolina, Lil Mama, Loote, Migos, Hood Celebrityy, Whistles London, and more.
