If it sounds like Wek is living the idyllic Brooklyn life—which, for the record, we certainly think she is—her mother, like all mothers since the beginning of time, likes to remind Wek that she should also be spending some time getting serious about dating and having kids. Wek grinned—a mile wide—and told us that dating “makes me feel like I’m a 16-year-old again. You just get giddy.” Although she won’t tell us any specifics, she does say she’s starting to think about getting serious with a relationship. And, really, what better place to raise a family than Brooklyn? While it’s true Wek still has a career that takes her all over the globe, she “wants to be able to balance. I want to find time to collaborate with other designers. And my refugee work is long term.”
