Cutting fabric, patching together old clothes and creating Halloween costumes at 10 - that's how the dream of becoming a fashion designer started.
For a 10 year old, who's plus size, finding clothes that fit well and look good is like finding a needle in a haystack. That perhaps, is what got my creativity in choosing and wearing clothes started. My size, up until now, has become a vessel for me to keep trying out new things. I know those clothes worn by the mannequin could never look as good on me. So i innovate and create new looks that fit me better.
For four years, I went through business school and got jobs hoping to fund, eventually, my own studies in fashion. But life happens. Or at least taxes do. And rent, basic clothing, food and utilities too.
Lucky are those, they say, whose dreams have been realized. Help me, in whatever means you can, to start getting this fashion career, rolling.
