SIDEWAYS


WEARING: Vintage Wool and Leather Jacket, American Apparel High Waist Shorts + Sheer  Tights, Club Monaco Turtleneck, Schutz Heels and Calvin Klein Clutch.

Sometimes to get to where you want, it is not as simple as going from point A to point B in a straight line. Most times you have to go up, down and sideways to get there. You can't take shortcuts, (at least not for most mortals) you just have to be prepared for a bumpy road to get your dream rolling along. My life is no different, I have been moving sideways, hoping to get where I want to be; taking hard work and creativity to the next level.

This past weekend I finished the research for my new collection, I have decided on the concepts, colours and fabric. Now it is time to translate my sketches into patterns, sew the dreams and discipline together so I can have my collection ready. It will be a long process to get there, but I am keeping faith alive so I don't lose sight.

  11. Love the texture of that jacket, the silhouette makes for such a striking profile too & the whole contrasting masculine/feminine feel of the outfit is just beautiful as always!
    I can't wait to see the results of all your work & wishing you lots of luck getting it finished. Even though the process will be long, you'll get there in the end, because you have the drive, ambition & not to mention such an incredible talent too, so just keep working hard & it'll all come together & be worth it soon! :)
