Happy Thursday everyone !!! I'd like to dedicate this post to the most amazing group of people who helped my vision come to life. If it wasn't for all of these amazingly talented people my senior fashion show would not have been nearly as successful. I feel so incredibly blessed to have been able to work with such amazing and talented people. I believe that we always end up meeting and working with the people we are meant to work with. Given that I am just beginning my designer journey I didnt have a budget to pay anyone and that is why I feel so blessed because all of these beautiful people collaborated with me to help my vision come to life and you guys have no idea how grateful I am. I had to ask a lot of people for help and to be honest I was shut down and turned down many times with people giving me their "Rates" and I totally understand because life is a hustle but I did not give up I asked all the models, photographers, and MUA's I knew if they could collaborate with me for my fashion show and although many people shut me down I was overwhelmed with happiness and gratitude with how many people actually wanted to help me and who went out of their way to help me get the people I was missing. It's just so beautiful that there are other people like me who like to help others and want to help others it just literally fills my heart with joy. It's people like them that inspire me to work harder because they're all go getters and work so hard but still take time to help others !
Despite the fact that this day was probably the longest day of my life and I literally slept a total of 1.5 hours the "night" before the show; it was literally the best day of my life. I have done other fashion shows but this show just proved to me what I can do. Making this show happen and making this collection was literally one of the biggest challenges I have faced in my career till this point because I decided to challenge myself and make a collection that was out of this world, and not to sound cocky but this collection is indeed out of this world. My inspiration for this collection came from nature, EDM music, the future and people. I love nature, people watching EDM music since its dawn in the 90's and the future fascinates me so I decided to mash all of that up into one inspiration and that gave birth to this collection. If your interested in more of my process please stay tuned because I will be posting my design portfolio here in a couple of weeks. Also if you want to buy any of my pieces I will be launching my site later this summer so please stay tuned for that. Also keep up with me on Facebook/instagram/twitter @stylebynathalia for specific dates on releases.
I'm literally so inspired by all of the people I have worked with for this show and also for other projects that I literally don't want to stop working and moving towards the future for whatever it may hold. I don't have a solid plan I don't know what I am going to do once I graduate but honestly I'm not sweating it I'm just going to continue to work hard and collaborate with amazing and beautiful people this summer and see where that takes me. Now I'm getting ready for my Vegas trip in a couple of weeks making the raddest freaking costumes I cannot wait to share with y'all, Im making them in collaboration with one of my epic designer friends and its just going to be an awesome costume collection so please stay tuned for that too :D.
I'm just so excited to make all of these announcements, it just feels amazing ! I hope you guys like this photos and my summer plans as much as I do <3 p="">3>
