Fashion has always been such a big part of my life that I can’t seem to remember how it actually started. A lot of people asked me how I got into it, but I never really know how to answer because it all just kinda came along nicely. There was never a defining “aha!” moment, not a piece of music, not a TV show… Somehow I just slipped into this very fast-paced, but very rewarding industry. The funny thing is, I always think about my early days as an avid “fashionista” (I promise, I’ll never use this word ever again) and how I grew up wanting to be a fashion designer. I first made clothes for my barbies when I got a hand me down Brother sewing machine from my Grandma. And the next thing you know, I’ve graduated with a diploma in Apparel Design! But after years of searching, I’ve come to find comfort and familiarity in visuals and words.
So here I am, It’s 3pm in London and I am typing this in a snug corner of a café in Hackney Central. I’m in a strapless summer dress and boots, which is odd because all I ever associate with my time in London is the cold. I’m relishing this moment. I’m in the midst of my summer break (if it is a break, at all) and I’ve been busier than ever. I’ve always been taught to keep myself occupied — an idle mind is the devil’s playground, they say.
But anyway! I hope to entertain and inspire through my words and ramblings about everything in the world. From daily musings on how much makeup is too much to serious, intellectual things like the impact of the media on society. JK about the latter. But really though, what we read and watch has an effect on the way perceptions shape in our mind. So, read the good stuff this week and I hope to see you on my column again. Same time, same place.
