Erdem Moralioglu on a recent visit to Japan

Dear Shaded Viewers,

A visit with Erdem Moralioglu, one of the designers up for the Swiss Textiles award had us talking about his most recent trip to Japan and about the death of Michael Jackson. I was nostalgic for the cherry blossoms and forgot that they come out in March not April or May.
