hello there folks.
tonight marks the season premiere of season 11 of project runway. 11 seasons?! where the heck has time gone? now, don’t get it twisted it hasn’t been 11 years, only 8, so please don’t make me feel any older than i already do. can you believe that i am almost 25 already? haha!
i have learned a lot in those 8 years. i have been presented with so many wonderful opportunities and have also had to endure some truly challenging situations. i have learned tons about myself as a person and as a designer and the fashion business and, for the first time, i feel like i’m on the path i was meant to be on.
it still surprises and excites me every day that i can sketch something, get it produced and get it to a customer. that is always what i had envisioned myself being able to do. i truly love designing and being able to supply products to all of you nice people out there. the joy you get wearing something of mine brings me joy. my god, how soft i have become in my old age. 8 years older, not 11!
after my grueling 2 day 2013 strategy meeting last week, boy oh boy, do i have a lot of great products planned for your enjoyment this coming year! i hope y’all are ready to start rocking the scrunchie again! 🙂
