If you are on Facebook and Pinterest you had to see all the latest fashions coming out of Fashion Week NY and Paris. I can’t help wondering who wears those clothes? The models look great in them but… We are not exactly models.
If I were invited to the Oscars or to a red carpet event, maybe I’d want one of those dresses. Imagine walking down to a front row seat wearing one!
These fashion shows have been going on for decades so there must be a purpose, and fashion is ever changing. But are they meant for you and me? I started paying some attention to the latest fashion trends hoping to be inspired to design coordinating jewelry.
What I discovered surprised me. When styles don’t look good on us we think it is us. But fashion is not really focused on the everyday woman. Its focus seems to be only on clothes that will sell to a specific type of woman.
Who are they meant for?
Why don’t they have Fashion week for women over 50, 60, 70? It’s clear to me that I was not meant to design fashion, but then designing jewelry was a surprise and ultimately became a passion, an addiction and a business. I didn’t know it was in me, but I’m sure glad I discovered it.
The past few years have been extraordinary for me, to my growth, my business and learning to apply social media marketing. Imagine in 6 years I’ll be 80 and still doing this. Did I tell you I want my tombstone to read, “SHE WAS All USED UP“!
