Many designers only cater to a certain type of person. Personally I feel that is far too limiting. For example I know the struggle of looking for the perfect outfit and having to settle for less than I wanted, even from my favorite creators. That’s part of the reason I became a fashion designer myself. I like to think of myself as much more freeing.
But isn’t that just part of being a designer? I might have thought that too earlier in my career. But as I have competed with many talented individuals throughout the years, I have learned one thing; you can be much more than you think. Especially when it comes to design.
Often times I will struggle with a new concept for a little bit, but I refuse to give up. The resulting piece is can be one that even takes my own breath away. Its a pleasure for me to work with custom commissions and ideas because of this. Yes it is a challenge, but that is what I consider to be the best part of design.
