Ever wonder how it feels standing in front of photographers who were frantically shooting u? The feeling of being in the spotlight makes people feel good. It's as if you've done sometime right. In this case, worn something right. I told myself, it doesn't matter if people are scanning u in a good/bad way. You couldn't care less, unless you read minds.
Be confident. Wear that outfit you love and stand up proud. No one would scrutinize a confident person.
This is fashion. Fashion doesn't just make wearable clothes. You get commercial pieces in the store. But on the runway, it's all glam up. And that's what people see in the first place.
I could only hope that the current generations would dress like the people in Paris/Japan/Hong Kong. I would want to live in HK if there's a choice. Paris if i'm richer.
Since joining the fashion industry, I don't count myself as 'a level higher than anyone', I learn to appreciate the value that comes from a piece of article. And therefore, understand the money that I'm willing to fork out to enjoy the exclusiveness, uniqueness and of course the price since not everyone will run to get it.
But will I continue to stay in the retail sector? Hmm, months ago, I asked myself that question. Yes.
And now, I'm uncertain. I don't know if I'm found the right path but merchandising in fashion seems appealing for me. Yes, I know retail is already the right direction I'm going. But I didn't want to stay at the front line forever.
If I want to go to the backend, I can only start from merchandising assistant, which I believe may not even pay well. But still, it's an office job, which means I could go study.
I may stick around for awhile to see how it goes. Although, the answer to me seems pretty obvious now... Give me another 6 months.
