As a freelancer, I value the ability to exercise creativity in whatever I want. The life of a freelancer, whatever your title may be, is anything short of glamourous, and can often become discouraging. Finding your niche is what becomes key. Setting yourself apart from the others can be crucial. Well I have found my niche, but it does not have a name.
I believe a wardrobe is a work of art—a personal reflection of the person wearing it. It tells a story unique to you. I treat my wardrobe like my canvas. Every time I add a new piece, or take a piece away, it is all based on my mood—what I am enjoying, aesthetically. My inspiration tends to come from art. Pieces from the 70s, such as Henri Matisse’s, all the way up to current pieces, such as ones from Italian artist, Piero Pizzi Cannella. When I say these artists inspire me, I am referencing their color palettes. Most of my wardrobe is neutral in color—deep browns, ivories and black. While that does not really set me apart from what is “trending” now, what sets me apart is the feeling I get when I am wearing my pieces.
Rapson Hall grew dim and the spot lights burst on, igniting thrill in the audience and intensity in the courtyard. Twelve senior designers and their collections, that they have been working tirelessly on, are about to hit the stage for the first time. It feels almost like I’m sitting third row at New York Fashion Week. The DJ begins to play during opening and adrenaline takes the runaway.
