Heidi's Mom, who everybody called Honey Bea,
was quite the Hollywood Glamour Girl back in the day. Engaged to a big-shot
Universal Studios producer, Honey Bea never set foot in public unless
she looked just right.
That whole producer thing fell through — it seems
like they always do — but, Honey Bea's style lives on...
"My Retro Collection is designed from my heart," Heidi
says, "It's in memory of my Mother, who we always called Honey Bea.
She was a beautiful woman with elegance, style, and class. The photo
above was taken when she was sunbathing in Southern California.
"I've had fun designing swimwear inspired by this
era. I find the suits to be stunning and timeless."
