dearest Mr Derek Lam,
it is with utmost admiration that i write to you--your sportswear sensibilities (honed at Michael Kors, i'm sure!) and love for clean lines have translated so beautifully into elegant yet girly dresses.
i love your precise silhouettes and fine fabrics, and while it is 4 years too late, congratulations on winning the CFDA Perry Ellis Swarovski Award!
PS: and thanks for all the good work you've done at Tod's thus far.
Sincerely and with love,
