Reasons And Seasons
I have been blessed with good friends and I truly feel that people cross our paths are for a reason, a season, or a lesson. This was the case in Berlin earlier this year. I decided to book a ticket at Premium, a European Fashion Fair exhibiting all the latest and greatest brands, both established and up and coming. Premium also coincides with Berlin Fashion Week. Where better to go for inspiration and guidance as a new designer starting out. Admittedly,it was a little too cold and windy for me. I am not made for cold weather! I layered tie-dye silks,with leather and more tie-dye cashmere in a bid to keep the elements out! Cold as it was, Berlin was wonderful. Edgy and full of life, a blend of old and post war architecture. It is both tough and cool. It doesn’t feel the need to try hard. And its fashion is a reflection of just that.
Meeting one individual at the Fair in Berlin led me to redesigning my branding and rethinking how I was presenting Glam & Rock to the world. We all need to be open to changes and evolve. And learning how to accept constructive criticism is part of the process. How else can we move forward and develop as people or in business. I have so much to learn and part of my journey is to ask for guidance.
