Hello everyone! I would like to share this blog post with you, because I think the message is something that many of us can relate to as fashionistas and models.
Fashion is art, and it’s a way of expressing yourself. Therefore, the amount of time and money invested in putting together your “look” makes it just as personal as someone would consider a painting, a song, or a sculpture. When we put together our “looks” for our blogs, a photo shoot, the runway, or just everyday life, we take risks exposing our art to the public. How will it be perceived? Do we care if people notice us? How do we handle any negative reactions to what we have created?
I think the challenge of creating art that will be displayed for public feedback is whether your idea, vision, or message can be conveyed through your creation. Part of that is understanding your audience, and listening to the feedback that was said. Sometimes lack of a reaction can be the biggest feedback of all.
However, I think as long as your art is meaningful to you, then that is all that matters. Don’t fall into the trap of creating just for the sake of getting approval. It is not genuine, and you cheat yourself out of the experience.
Have fun reading!

In the moments as I stood posed waiting for the judges decision, something gripped me. My heart started pounding. As seconds turned into minutes, my imagination went crazy. What if I were to win? I knew I wouldn’t but what if I did? Then, just fifteen…
