Haiti In My Heart, Part 2
I pride myself on being able to sniff out a “shopportunity” wherever I go, and Port-au-Prince was no exception. My first stop was the airport road atelier of local designer Pascale Theard, whose beaded sandals and belts, glove-soft leather totes and handbag charms had my name ALL over them.
Reflecting on my quick trip, I recall the words of my guide, filmmaker Romel Jean Pierre, who told me: “Haiti will rock your world.”
And he was right. After just three days in Port-au-Prince I feel subtly but significantly changed, somehow, and eager to get back there again. Check out this video and perhaps you’ll see why.
