Wishing everyone the comfort, warmth, joy and blessings of the holiday season and time of year when many are stressed, lonely and depressed – as much as many of us are filled with happiness, enjoying family and the often magically beautiful spirit of the season. Give love.
I never tire of fashion illustrations and still enjoy sketching and designing; a passion since junior high. Of the many dreams I had when I was little and what I wanted to be when I grew up was to be in the fashion industry. I envisioned being either a designer, illustrator, merchandiser/buyer, or having my own store. I remember drawing a storefront with my name on it with models in front all wearing my designs.
My Mom asked me a few days ago if I remembered proclaiming to her very matter of factly when I was around 5, “Mommie, I’m going to have my own modeling school!” I had to laugh at the recollection. This modeling school idea of course went right along with wanting to be a singer/entertainer and maybe even a business lawyer, an idea I entertained in high school just before I became a member of Shalamar. I’ve never been short on dreams and goals that’s for sure.
