Featured on Elan...


I know it's months over due but I was actually featured in a weekly fashion journal early this year with other very talented designers as...get this "Designers to look out for in 2009" hmm lil ol me, I was actually made up, had a photo shoot...pampered, the whole works. Truth is it's just occuring to me to share this news with y'all and not just keep the journal framed up in my workshop where it has been all these months giving me encouragement for those days where you start to question your ability to actually pull things off, for days when people expect and feel justified to give you much less than you know you actually deserve, for those days when you work till very late to wake up very early to run to a day job you wish you could just quit, you know... for just those days. I know that after the publication people that didnt, started to take me seriously, I got some orders and even offers for some sort of partnership hehehe, no but seriously it's a good feeling to be appreciated...especially if it is from out of the blue. Thank you Kemi (Style Editor at NEXT) for picking me out of the blue.
