When you think of fashion design, you don’t think of a girl wearing Mickey mouse pjs, a top knot in her hair, and papers and books and drawings all around her – Day 11

But that was me today lol

I only showered at about 16h00.  I spent the day on the floor outside – because it was so fucking hot today. Working and making smoothies every time I got hungry because I only have yogurt and fruit in my house. Listening to the water feature outside my uncles front door and in the background hearing the cleaning lady singing along to Lorde’s Royals, in the background.

Two clothing boutiques have got back to me and I spent my whole day making catalogues and working on a presentation for them.

If this deal comes through for me – I will literally be over the moon. I swear, I will jump over the moon. Thats just how happy I will be.

Who am I kidding? – Day 10

I have just released the lookbook for my latest collection and I hate it.

It isn’t nearly as good as my last collection – it isn’t getting as many likes and people aren’t contacting me.

Who am I kidding to think I can even be a fashion designer? That I can actually make money off this? That people will actually wear my clothes.

I am heading down a negative spiral!

Of course I know how unhealthy these thoughts are and that I need to be kind to myself – but the anxiety is just taking over.

I’m operating a one woman show here – designer, seamstress, marketer, manager, accountant and cleaner.

Basically spent my whole weekend creating my lookbook for my new collection and working on my website.

A went away and he is back today 🙂 I can’t wait!

Mini swiss rolls and financial panic – Day 4,5

Resort collection used quite a bit of money…

Today I bought fabrics for my new orders and my bank balance has now slipped into the negatives. Thankfully a very spontaneous woman popped into my studio today and she wants a skirt so thats a tiny bit of money at least. But its not enough to cover medical expenses, pay for my storage unit – where all my furniture from my marriage is just stagnating and sucking up my funds, also the my phone, gym… and so on.

I have 7 days to get in new orders and make money?

So I’m sitting binging on mini Swiss rolls and browsing through my room looking for things that I could potentially sell for some extra cash?

Holding thumbs when the resort collection is released on Monday, I get lots of traffic!

It’s just a matter of time – Day 3
