Alas! My experiment has failed. You cannot (or rather, I cannot) be a one man island in the fashion industry and flourish. It at least takes 2 (ideally more, but at least two- in addition to independent / established personal wealth or backing from investors - of which I do not have and despite years of sideline research, have no realistic idea how to secure AND create at the same time. Kudos to anyone that can do both. You are indeed special.). Nevertheless, the BUSINESS of FASHION seems more like a soul-siphoning blood sport to me than genuine, artful pursuit and I’ve noticed that apart from self-serving exploitation of minority groups, most of the time fortune favors the already fortunate. Do i regret taking 13 years to discover this? It’s funny when i think about it, but no. I learned an invaluable ton. Nothing is absolute and I hesitate to make any declarations of future plans, so for now, consider my website an “ELABORATE HOBBY” that may contingently contract, expand or collapse. Though I have otherwise fired myself from full time commitment, you can shop what is available here and now. As for the made to order Finery, however, I am presently finished hemorrhaging my time, money and well being into a vacuum. Countless apologies for the seemingly sudden shift in trajectory to some of you, but this is something I’ve been contemplating on my cranial back-burner for some time. To all who have believed in and supported my work, I cannot adequately express just how grateful I am. THANK YOU.
