After my very recent makeover, I am starting to socialize and network with the fashion industry and have started to realize how much work, time and effort goes into it. Finding the relevant events to attend and getting myself invited, with a limited friend base is proving very tough… Especially as LFW is right around the corner! Am I up to taking on this new side of my life and what differences will it make to me and my project in the long run?
Or do I just over-think everything!
youre very right….social networking takes way too much energy awa from being a designer, but it is really the only way to move forward if you are starting from scratch. And it’s a shame too, because you have to be very creative in the social networking in order to get and hold people’s attention and that also takes creativity and time away from sewing and creativng.
