I know we are already into the new year but I still think saying "happy new year" is very acceptable until January 31st! Things have majorly changed for me towards the end of 2014 and I am looking forward to blogging more in 2015 to keep you guys updated on this designer's life.
My goal for 2015, is to inform people through this blog about the trials and many tribulations of being a fashion/graphic designer in this day and age? Yes I'm aware I posted that as a question. What does it take to start a brand and to keep your creative mind stimulated. Hmmm, ok, I like that as an overall umbrella topic for the year! Let's run with that.
I started my career many moons ago back in Brooklyn, NY. Before the term "hipster" was even a household term. I now live in southern California, near Los Angeles and realize I have almost come full circle. Back then, I was fresh and eager to learn. At the time, using the word "designer" to my parent's friends felt like such a dirty word. This feeling has now come to creep back into mind as I leap into my new business venture. The word designer to immigrant parents still sounds dirty but I've learned to embrace it, and starting my own business feels so fresh and invigorating. Yup 11 years later i'm back to where I started and it's still a scary new place. So follow me, as I launch this brand within the next few weeks!
