What would the title of your auto-biography be?Hard question- I’m only half kidding with these: Small Girl / Big World / Medium Fries or The Story of Pamela Love: Jewels Rule You Drool
What can’t you travel without and why?
A good book, headphones, and a giant coat that doubles as a blanket.
Where is your favorite travel destination?
Anywhere new. I love traveling and seeing different cultures, so it’s hard to choose a favorite. Though I’ve always been partial to the Southwest- New Mexico and Arizona play a huge part as inspiration for my collections. And I’m currently planning a trip to Morocco for the spring.
If you could choose one person to show you “their New York City”, who would it be and why?
What or who has inspired you recently and why?
The culture and craftsmanship of Berber tribes in Morocco, and Northern African architecture.
