A passion for fashion

20 Mar

For As long as i could remember, I have always had an insane interest in fashion and clothes. When i was young i used to enjoy making and sewing tiny clothes for my dolls. As i grew older i started to realise that i enjoyed doing this very much. I stopped telling people about how happy it made me feel because each time i brought it up, they would laugh and tell me that doing something like that would be wasting my ‘brains’. And that the only thing i should concentrate on were my studies, the ONLY thing i was good at.
A time came when i had to give it all up completely and would not even think about because it would bring tears to my eyes.
It seemed like the end of my fashion dream and the begining of the rest of my life full of regrets and ‘what ifs’
Last year when i had some money laying around i decided to start a small business with my elder sister selling clothes and shoes. It was not exactly our own fashion house but at that point anything was better that nothing. Plus i was making money doing something i liked-dealing with clothes. It was going well and the money was worth it all. And we were so certain that we were a step closer to the bigger picture.
It became hard when i had to give it up because i could balance it with school. Until it all died out completely because my sister had school too.
Well the money was saved up in case we decided to revive it again.
And when this year started, our thoughts were still focussed on that goal. Hoping that any sign from above would give up some more hope or anything to make up not give up easily.
Three days before my 21st birthday, seated near a boutique while having my favourite meal – chicken and chips. The idea came to us and we both agreed on it, we were looking downstairs at all the people and thinking “people wear anything as long as its from a well known boutique”. I felt really sad because deep down i knew that if we worked really hard at it, even we could make a name for ourselves as fashion designers or atleast something along those lines.
Then we thought WHY NOT RISK IT? And so began our month long count down or less to the day that we unveil our very own designs.
And if it doesnt work out this time, we will just keep trying until something does come in our paths.
*hopeful much*
