I have been desiring to wear my own clothes since I was a young girl.
I remember the first time I attempted to create something from an old camo skirt I received from being in my church’s drill team. The initial reaction to my newly transformed mini skirt was everyone thought it was epic but when they found out where it came from, out of the mouth of someone who just had to reveal where it did, people began to talk about me, cruelly, I never attempted again, except on paper. I wanted to sketch my own prom dress and get it made. I liked being different even if it got me bullied.
Now, that I am well into adulthood the passion for design is still there, so much so, that I had sketched out my own jacket line, created my own boutique, and t-shirt line. Yes, I have tons of ideas, but a true anger came out of me when I went to attempt to purchase a floral blazer. I had this vision for it and I was sure to find it because it is Spring, but no, no one had it, a lot of solids. I was so upset because where was the creativity and why do stores desire for us to blend in? Where are the characters and the choices for us to have our own identity or at least represent the same clique? They put out a certain look and expect everyone to identify with it. Ugh, to say the least. I have learned through my spiritual connectors and listening to a Course in Miracles that if you are angry about something it is your calling to change it.
My passion led me into JoAnn Fabrics and finally was a few steps closer to seeing my vision come to life but I cant do it alone. I need help but check out some images I snapped from there.
I had to snap photos because ideas were flowing out of me. I cant wait till I get my chance to have a runway show and expand my idea on a boutique but for now my dream is manifesting in dream land and I have fashion shows and mixers to attend to get my name out there.
