Raf Simons S/S 2018 Love it!

I felt the urge to share this, (if you haven’t seen it already). Raf Simons Spring/Summer 2018 collection and fashion show is just riddled with creativity. It’s easy to see why he’s one of the most iconic designers to date. Staying relevant comes naturally to him, partially due to his own effort to keep up with the latest music trends. He also secures relationships with hot artists and musicians. This runway show features art designs from Joy Division and New Order created by Peter Saville. This is not the first time Raf Simons has collaborated with popular rock bands. He’s been doing this since the early 1990’s. He’s a club kid at heart. His knack for staying in tune with youth culture is amazing. This runway show inspired by Chinatown NY  is authentic Raf Simons. I prefer his “pure” un-colaborated fashion interpretations. I’m never satisfied with just a touch of Raf…I prefer the whole dose. Enjoy the fashion show!

Fluidity and Careers in Fashion…

 

I decided to do  a bit more content regarding the industry in terms of career. I see the need is more prevalent than ever before. When it comes to fashion, it’s all about evolving. NEVER EVER close yourself into any kind of bracket. For all those starting out and attending college; please understand that once you get into the actual industry, you’ll find there’s so much more to it than you thought.  For example, you may think you’re just good at fashion design, or that’s all you ever want to pursue. When you actually start working, it might not be what you expected. The glamour disappears and all you experience is the grit and grind of deadlines and demands. You’ll love it, but certain things may take its toll on you. After a while you’ll get burnt out, so you become a photographer. You travel, make lots of money, and work with fabulous people. Next you’ll discover you love styling, and the cycle repeats itself.  In case you’re wondering, I’m not speaking from experience. Although I had adventures (briefly) as a fashion designer. My point is this; set yourself up to be fluid. As for a road map; make one up. Don’t walk down other peoples path. I’m not gonna leave you hanging though. Here are a few tips that will help your ride become less bumpy:

Get A Degree – A.A. or B.A. will do. You’ll find a lot of people don’t have degrees who work in prominent positions in fashion. What you should keep in mind is the time they got on board. In this day and age, having secondary education (i.e degrees) will make you more viable, and help you gain a decent salary. You also meet lots of connections in college, and teachers; who will refer you for internships or resume building projects. You don’t need a degree to work in fashion, but having one is a great way to break into the work force. Remember, college is a learning environment; real world mistakes costs time, money, and energy.

Persistence – Everybody loses… I say this because I guarantee you’ll get rejected at some point or another. It happens to the best of us; trust me I know. The only thing that will keep you going is a positive outlook. Rejection is supposed to make you work harder and gain determination. Use rejection as fuel to ignite that fire within that drives your passion to succeed. DON’T BE CUT THROAT; it’ll come back somehow. Understand that every dog has his day. That opportunity isn’t for you, but yours will come…Duh.

Humbleness –  So many egos; that’s the problem with the fashion industry. That’s ONE of the problems. When you venture onto the scene, realize that you DON’T know everything, and you won’t know for a while. It’s O.k. because the REAL lessons come after college anyway. Be open to learn and don’t act like you’re doing anyone a favor. Industry professionals love energetic and eager fashion minded individuals, but a holier than thou attitude will be your undoing.  You will be untouchable, and not in a good way. Don’t brown nose either, just be yourself.

That’s it for now!  Let me know what you think of this article! I have a lot more insight to share, so please follow me on my social media, especially Facebook and Instagram for updates.

Just thought I’d post a little color inspiration. Love this; it’s not trending but these colors are fun and energetic. This combination could definitely work for Spring/Summer 2018. Actually, you know what? Forget the old theories and wear what you want! At the end of the day, what’s on the streets rules supreme!
