20 years on, do you know what struck me most?

these women have always done their own thing, they havent pandered to popularity or trend, in my humble opinion they have done exactly what they wanted to and somehow have managed to keep businesses going by keeping it real and authentic.

ladies i salute you and long may you continue to do so.
