“Fashion is not something that exists in dresses only. Fashion is in the sky, in the street, fashion has to do with ideas, the way we live, what is happening.” ~ Coco Chanel
As this journey begins, I will be telling the stories of where I have been as well as the stories of individuals that I have come across, am working with today and I hope to work with in the future. Everyone has a reason and a purpose for why they have chosen what they pursue. What follows is all the additional intersections and corresponding interactions that surround the successes and the challenges that are faced while on the journey. It is often times the story behind the perception that gives one the determination and the resolve to look at their own life and see what they can do differently that will impact their success and their ability reach to others. I have the phenomenal opportunity to be involved with so many great entrepreneurs as well as individuals that are working on making their dreams and passions come true. I want to make sure that these stories are shared. Not only are the stories going to be important for edification of the businesses and the individuals in and running them, but the community that is impacted as a recipient of the business via the work created, the ideas developed, the opportunities given that enable them to survive, grow, flourish and have their worlds transformed into something bigger, better, and stronger than they ever knew before.
We walk a fine line in doing the work we do, that it can be perceived to be frivolous, and a waste of time to others. If you have the understanding that everyday, you cannot wake up or go to sleep without being impacted by fashion as it is part of everything you wear and even if you don't watch television, film, or anything related to entertainment, almost everyone else around you is watching those things and every conversation will have some kind of connection to communication which ultimately resembles some form entertainment. Film and fashion gives one the chance to see, feel, imagine, escape, and dream... as it is everywhere and in everything and surpasses and consumes the soul and our consciousness for us to reach and go beyond.
