1. You will be reminded that you don’t need money or power to effect change, only creativity and an idea.

2. You will never look at the label in a garment the same way again.

3. You will, even just for a moment, think about sweatshop labor.

4. You will want to show it to other people because of its beautiful workmanship and elegant execution.

5. You will be a little more creative having absorbed a bit of her unforgettable art.
