You're also launching a jewelry line, Mattlin Era, with Pascal Mouawad's Glamhouse. How did that come about?
I wanted people to feel as passionate about the idea of me creating stuff on my own as I did. I wanted people to say, "I trust that you have your own vision and that we don't have to have someone else with a vision [design the collection] and then just put your name on it," because I just could never do that -- especially with something as personal as jewelry or clothing. The jewelry's so personal and there's a story behind each piece. It's all connected to my family and people that inspire me.
