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.

You should be a part time model – PART 16 Day 1

Well its 11am and my model was meant to come see me at 1pm.

She just cancelled.

And I mean cancelled today and cancelled for the shoot tomorrow.

Its exactly 22hours until the shoot and I still have to hem 2 pairs of pants, 3 dresses and put buttons on 2 dresses and then steam all the clothes. And also find a new model – Fantastic.

But guess what. My previous model from my last shoot is available thank god. And I’m going to use her again. She is perfect, reliable and enthusiastic and I know my clothing fits her incredibly well. It would be child’s play to search for a new model at such a late stage and just pray that she is good and fits into my clothes.

In all honestly – perhaps this was a blessing.
