The hardest thing about working on my own (besides the terrifying quantity and quality of conversations I have with the cat) is that there's never anyone around to give me any feedback. With a background in fine arts, I thrive off critiques, and talking through my work with peers is just something I like to do. It's not that I don't trust my own instincts, I do, but explaining & defending my work and hearing observations & criticism from others gives me a stronger perspective and often a stronger piece.

I've been slowly working away at what may be the first dress in my new collection. I think I'll have a better idea of whether or not I want to include it after I come back from my trip. For me this is the first piece designed for the consumption of others that I've worked through entirely alone - it's bizarre that this is a new thing to me.

Hopefully it will get easier with time.

Oh hi. I didn't mention this yet, but this looks amazing. Don't even let that 19 year-old Brazilian who just showed his line in Paris get you down.
