Officially spring is here so I need to get the wheels in motion. In the next few weeks I am attending various workshops and meeting a fashion mentor to get some guidance on moving the brand forward. I know what I would like to happen but my lack of knowledge stops me from being able to make really good progress. Fingers crossed the advice I receive is the catalyst in both the exposure of the brand and sales.
It is hard being a lone business person. Reaching out is the right thing to do so I can reinvigorate my enthusiasm and motivation. I am sure most entrepreneurs have moments where they seriously question what they are doing and why. I know I do. Especially after loaning money for it, I would hate for it not to work because I did not fully invest in it physically and mentally.
Participating in the art group is good as it has helped the creativity and opened up options regarding how the brand could be showcased. But allows me the time to explore my favourite old notion of challenging the boundaries of where art and fashion can exist or more importantly co-exist. There is another exhibition coming up in May. So I am playing about with ideas, new ones that differ from the magazine as I like to work in various mediums. At the moment I am toying with the idea of paintings with collage, screenprints or maybe just framing the t-shirts along with an image of it being modelled. We will see as my ideas change frequently depending on my mood and the overall aesthetic of the pieces when they are together. Here's a sneaky peek of the potentials so far👇🏽
