The Night Mondo Guerra Kissed Me*

 *Okay, Mondo didn't kiss me, but it was still a thrill.

I met Mondo Guerra last night for the second time. We met three years ago when he came to the open call for designers for our first runway competition Frock Out. He was already designing with panache and he was juried in as one of our twelve designers. I remember him as funny, self-effacing and joyful. Circumstances and life interfered and Mondo wasn't able to participate in Frock Out. I'm not sure if any of us knew then what we missed out on.
