On a rough day, when I feel incompetent in my career, I like to look back at my passion; design. Featherette was the name of my graduate fashion collection in 2012. I had never worked so hard in my school life as I did on this collection. I remember staying in the CSUN sewing lab all night until morning, taking a nap in my car and going back for my 7:00 am class. Showers?! Who needs them?? Despite lack of sleep, I was the happiest back then. I knew I wanted to be a Fashion Designer, my goal was to have my own fashion label. I was determined to do whatever it took to reach my dream.
Fast forward to today..... And you would be disappointed. I've been working hard to climb up the fashion buyer ladder the last couple of years. I haven't made it very far up, cancer had a little to do with it. But even then, the passion and motivation I used to have isn't there anymore. My sewing machines have been collecting dust for years now, and my dress form currently holds my Halloween costume.....in February.
I think it's time to light the fire I used to have and prove all of my doubts wrong.
With that being said, "Challenge Accepted"
