AND THEN A FASHION BLOG WAS BORN
On Wednesday, May 13, 2015 at 6:58 AM, my labor of love was almost here. I took a deep breath, and made my final PUSH. Well, push as in the ENTER key of my keyboard as I finalized some minor detail on this website! I uploaded my first digital book: The Fashion Designer's Ultimate Quick-Step Guide to Photoshop and Digital Painting to my online store. Come to think of it, I basically delivered two babies in one day, I think I should be considered for the Mother of the year award! No, but seriously I took a major leap of faith by creating Design In Session, and honestly I found myself almost consumed with anxiety.
Questions like what if this website is not good enough? What if my book turns out to be a total flop? What if this venture causes me to fall flat on my face for the world to see? Sort of like that one time in high school when I ran up the stadium stairs with a stack of textbooks and supplies in hand, clumsily rushing to get to my next class across the campus. While running I suddenly found myself reeling backwards after a slight misstep, and the next thing I see is the the pale blue sky above while the pages of my textbooks flutter about in the wind. As if in slow motion, I could see the crowd of shocked facial expressions as I came tumbling down. Damn.
Well, I guess when I think of this big leap of faith in comparison to that embarrassing blunder; this blogging endeavor shouldn't be so bad after all! Design In Session has been my brain child ever since I became active within the Fashion industry as a fashion designer. For as long as I can remember, I have always had a strong interest in fashion as well as art (yes, I was the art nerd that freaked out every time local art stores had a good sale). I created a video that can much better explain the purpose of this blog, minus the random tangents of course:
As I have stated in the video, my ultimate goal is create a community where Fashion Designer's can come together and grow collectively. Yes, I know that to a certain degree this may seem impossible, but what can I say I am an optimist! There is so much raw talent and artistic genius that thrives within all Fashion Designers, and in my experience I find that the fierce competitive nature of this industry can sometimes get in the way of that. At Design In Session, I want you to drop all of that heavy competitive armor, kick your feet up, and get lost in the beauty of the fashion design process. I promise you will be glad that you did!
