“Everything that I’ve ever done I can still relate to, and feel connected to it in a way. There’s no part of my life that I look at and go, ‘I don’t recognize that person at all.”
― Ian Mckaye

​I came across a quote the other day, about not being ashamed of your work. At some moment in time this body of work  gives life to an experience, something I went through. It freezes the moment in time, evoking similar emotions whenever revisited.
I’m at the point were I won’t say its shame but more so judging… Guess when it all boils down to it, its all just fear. Fear of my work not being good enough, nor coming out the way I envisioned. Or even worse, messing up and having to start over.

So its an on going process of reminding myself, although I’m not ideally where I want to be & not producing my best quality of work. I keep in mind that’s how I get better, just keep working. Build on my craft, nobody is great when they’re first starting out.

Thats what’s so magical about art & engrossing one’s self in their craft. Sure it may not come out exactly as envisioning, but always leave wiggle room. Allow yourself permission to slip up, recover and find your way again. Keeping in mind imperfections means character, and the spontaneity challenges lead to fun.

2017 Menswear

Hey peeps, happy 2017 to all.                                                                                                                 how has everyone been doing? …. I’ve been putting forth such a strong effort to being committed to my goal and “staying in action” of accomplishing goals.

I wanted to tackle menswear for the longest…. So I did just that!

slaving away on creating the pattern pieces

I made my Menswear debut in a tailored single breasted blazer with double welt pockets, breast pocket, two piece sleeves, lining, complete with lapel and collar.15967176_10101621145693227_276405023_o15942883_10101621066736457_926944746_o15942913_10101621067804317_445071363_o15942983_10101621067440047_355666747_o

My first Menswear piece Pattern and sewing all done by me 😊                                                   I couldn’t be any happier or more proud of my hard work and dedication.

Personal Endeavors to be GREAT 💪💪

One thing that’s apparent in this video is, every professional has found themselves in this Cutie’s shoes at one time or another. No one became great without having the courage to suck but kept the hard work & faith high knowing they’ll become better.

Which is exactly what I’m going through. I’m working on my first gown. & the hiccups, run around, and mistakes are helping mold the learning experience. That’s what I’m telling myself, I changed my narrative. The way I approach my creative process. By doing so, it’s not a daunting, frustrating task. Now its only a matter of working on speeding up a bit, but that will come in due time.

We are all like/{have been like} this mini ballerina in her endeavors to be great. So let’s all work towards our very own greatness through Diligence, Hard Work, & Faith

Peace & Love
